For Israeli composer Shimon Cohen, "Jerusalem is the inner sanctum of the whole world." He has tried to capture that belief in his "Jerusalem Sketches: A Rhapsody for Symphony Orchestra," which will receive its first U.S. performance when Cohen conducts the Garden Grove Symphony on Saturday as part of the orchestra's fifth annual free "Summer Symphony in the Park." "As our heart is composed of four sections, my composition is composed in four sections," Cohen said in a recent phone interview.

Right-wing Israelis burying a victim of a Jerusalem market bombing took out their anger on Arabs and journalists Tuesday, pelting them with stones and insults. As the cortege of 72-year-old Shimon Cohen left a funeral parlor in Jerusalem's working-class Shmuel Hanevi district, enraged Jews stoned passing Arab motorists and jostled and insulted press photographers. "Die!" a bearded man in the black skullcap of an Orthodox Jew screamed at a television crew.

The Post Office today began postmarking nearly all letters mailed in Britain with the words "Jesus Is Alive!" as part of a private arrangement financed by an evangelist. Jewish leaders criticized the Christian cancellation as potentially offensive. The special postmark, which also contains a small cross, will be used for six weeks. It was paid for by Paul Slennet, who sells religious literature at two bookstores in Southend-on-Sea, east of London. He said God told him to buy the postmark.

A survivor of the Nazi death camps, Shony Alex Braun has more than the ordinary person's right to try composing a "Symphony of the Holocaust."

A homemade pipe bomb exploded at a juice stand in a crowded market Monday, killing an elderly Israeli, wounding at least nine other shoppers and raising fears of an accelerated spin on the cycle of violence between Israelis and Arabs. Israeli officials had been bracing for an attack like this ever since a deranged Israeli gunman shot and killed seven Palestinian workers on a roadside in Rishon le Zion, near Tel Aviv.

The Concise Oxford Dictionary has offered a compromise in its long-running quarrel with Jewish groups over its inclusion of the word Jew as a racial slur. The Jewish campaigners say they welcome the change but believe it is not enough. The disputed entry defines Jew as "1. person of Hebrew descent; person whose religion is Judaism. . . . 2. (derog., colloq.; R) person who drives hard bargains, usurer. . . ." And as a verb: "(derog., colloq.

Israeli troops evicted hundreds of screaming and weeping Jewish settlers from their homes, schools and synagogues in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, carrying out a chaotic and harrowing operation to end 38 years of occupation. By the end of the first day of the forced evacuations, the army said that almost half of the 21 settlements were vacant or nearly empty, and that the rest would probably be cleared within days.
