Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, begins at sundown on Sept. 27 and ends at nightfall on Sept. 28. For observant Jews, it is a time to fast, contemplate and pray. The Bernhard family of La Cañada Flintridge is in the midst of preparations. “Our family’s Yom Kippur observance starts with an early dinner just for our family, one that will hold us through the 25-hour fast we try to observe,” said Amy Bernhard. “Our daughter Talia, 13, an eighth-grader at LCHS, is now considered an adult in the Jewish community, so she’s supposed to fulfill the same obligations as an adult.

Sorry, Mel Gibson. I did it. The rain was my fault. Scholars note that prayers for rain are among the earliest liturgical texts and that the Bible regards the withholding of rain as a punishment from God (cf. Deut. 11:11–17; I Kings 17:1). Just as there are four seasons in Southern California (earthquake, wind, mudslides, fire), there are four seasons in Jewish folk tradition. Unlike the secular seasons (fall, winter, spring, summer), all four Jewish seasons are compressed into one month.

Conservative radio personality and Jewish figurehead Dennis Prager recently relocated to the foothills to be closer to his Glendale studio, but radio isn?t the only thing he plans on bringing to La Cañada. ?I will be conducting the High Holy Day ceremonies of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur in La Cañada because no synagogue exists here right now,? Prager said. ?I don?t want to promise to start a new synagogue, but if people are up in numbers and are committed, I don?t see why we shouldn?

On Saturday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m., Temple Sinai of Glendale will present its annual Selichot study session and service. This year's program is extremely unique as the temple is pleased to welcome special guest Jeremy Kagan, director of the highly acclaimed film "The Chosen." Kagan will screen the 1981 movie, lead a discussion and share stories about the making of the film, during which he went undercover into the Hassidic Jewish community for research. He will also discuss the movie's deeper issues such as Judaism in the modern world and relations to the state of Israel.

Friday was the first night of the Festival of Lights. For non-historians, Hanukkah goes back to the second century BCafter a battle that the Maccabees, a Jewish tribe, had won over Anthoichus, a Hellenistic emperor who forbade Jews from practicing in his empire. The Maccabees rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem afterward, but only had enough oil to last one day. The oil miraculously lasted eight days, and Bob?s your uncle. The origins are virtually lost from the modern celebration, with the exception of the eight days and candles, but what remains is the spirit of the holiday.

I am a sucker for free food. And this past weekend was very tasty. I went to three places where the opportunity for free food presented itself. I sometimes joke that the only reason I go to the events I am invited to is because of the free food. The first event I photographed was the Ramadan potluck held at the La Cañada Community Center on Friday night hosted by the Islamic Congregation of La Cañada Flintridge. The place was packed, and so was the food table. Everything from traditional dishes to In ’n’ Out burgers was served.

Wal-Mart is test-marketing biblical action figures — Jesus, Moses, Mary, Noah, David and Samson among them. And Target will do the same on its website. There is at least some concern, however, among consumers — parents — that such figures may prompt children to equate biblical heroes and heroines with secular figures. And while some may see the action figures as a learning tool, others may see them as gag gifts. What do you think of the idea of biblical action figures?
