25 years later...Catching up with L’Chaim couples

L’Chaim® magazine, which is all about celebrations, has a celebration of its own. This is the 25th anniversary edition of L’Chaim magazine.

The first L’Chaim was published Feb. 17, 1989. It was a new venture for the Intermountain Jewish News, which until then had published a weekly newspaper exclusively. The magazine was an outgrowth of the IJN’s annual bridal and travel issue.

IJN Publisher and Editor Miriam Goldberg, Executive Editor Rabbi Hillel Goldberg and the late Managing Editor Doris Sky saw the magazine — with its slick, four-color cover and 50-pound book stock interior — as an opportunity to provide an effective new showcase for the bridal and travel issue’s advertisers and to shine the spotlight on life’s celebrations, such as weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and travel.

The stuff of legends

The stuff of legendsIt’s accurate to call Marshall Fogel a collector, but hardly sufficient.

The one and only time he saw Rose was in February, 1945 — but Diamond had no clue about his identity. “We were responsible for clearing a roadblock on the road to Cologne, Germany,” he says. “It was very bad — mined and zeroed in — but the tanks had to get through. We were assigned the task of clearing the road. “And there were casualt...

Choreographing the Holocaust

Choreographing the Holocaust CLASSICAL ballets are often the domain of regal swans, star-crossed lovers, evil magicians and mythical beasts. For the price of a ticket, the balletomane can swoon in an imaginary landscape unencumbered by harsh reality. For choreographer Stephen Mills, the artistic director of Ballet Austin and a former dancer, ballet is his mother tongue — and he speaks it beautifully. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, however, beauty faded from his lexicon. Americans mourned. Flags waved. War loomed. ...

Visiting the known — and unknown — in Israel

Visiting the known — and unknown — in IsraelSummer, winter, spring or fall — Israel is a wonderful place to experience. Regardless of the season, it’s all good. Our trip — a tour group of a couple dozen writers and editors representing the American Jewish Press Association — happened to go in the heart of winter, late January. It wasn’t quite cold, but often cool.  The famous landscapes of the Galilee and Golan Heights were, more often than not, shrouded in mist rather than bathed in sunlight.
