What We’re Wearing: For Timeless Fashion, Follow The Don

One day last month, as I entered Advanced Gemara Shiur, the brilliant and fashion-forward Rabbi Ari Schwarzberg turned to me and asked a question. “Micah,...

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: Who says fashion’s just for girls?

“What are you shopping for, basketball shoes?” This is the response I receive when I tell my guy friends that I am going to the mall to shop for clothing. For some odd reason, fashion is almost always associated with females. They get to do the shopping, the styling and the dressing.  But I’ll be the first one to tell you that at least at Shalhevet, fashion is...

A SLICE OF SHALHEAVEN: Bittersweet farewell to cockroaches, morgues and other memories

Welcome to the end of an era. Goodbye big beige box on Fairfax and San Vicente. So long, hideous blue-ish carpet. Au revoir alarm-will-sound-if-door-is-opened door that is constantly opened and never alarms. Bon voyage everlasting supply of cockroaches! Goodbye Shalhevet that I have known for so many years. The date of demolition is in the near future and it’s time that we ...

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Sand-Which Bar shows good food is good business on Pico

As I learned a few weeks ago in U.S. History class, America’s economy thrives on competition.  You might have thought there were enough kosher restaurants...

A slice of Shalheaven: Missing Seniors Syndrome

Filed under A slice of Shalheaven, Columns, Opinion

By Hannah-Leeba Ellenhorn, Arts Editor I’d like to preface my rant by disclosing a bit of a personal medical report. Upon self diagnosis (trust me, my Dad’s a doctor) I spent much of the month of April suffering from something akin to Empty Nest Syndrome. I had Empty Hall Syndrome. The silence in the halls resonated. There could be only two possible reasons ...

Fashion repeats itself. But is this actually an issue? How annoyed were you when you invested in that pair of neon pink shoes at the end of summer 2009, only to discover that biker boots were the hot new shoe that coming fall? Luckily, the neon trend, like many past trends, has come back for an encore. Everyone should get excited because it is time to dust off those neon...

A SLICE OF SHALHEAVEN: Don’t let May steal your soul

May 2, 2012

Filed under A slice of Shalheaven, Blogs, Opinion

By Katie Feld, Staff Columnist The month of May has graced us with her presence once again. Wait, scratch that…what I really meant was that the month of May has bashed down the doors, tumbled across the room and fallen abruptly into our laps. I do not recall inviting her in and May deserves nothing near a warm, open-armed welcome. If I haven’t made myself clear alr...

When you wake up in the morning to a gloomy day and realize you have 10 minutes before you have to run out the door, follow this guide for a perfect winter look.  Winter is a time to layer on comfy sweaters, leggings and thermals to stay warm. But living in L.A means being privileged to have great weather at this time of year, which makes dressing for the seasons doesn’t...

Chapa Grill brings Israeli flavor to Wilshire

You might wonder: does Los Angeles really need another kosher Israeli-style restaurant? On Pico Boulevard alone, there must be 10. But if we’re talking about Chapa Grill, the answer is definitely yes. Chapa Grill is actually not on Pico Boulevard. It’s located right in the middle of the business district at the corner of Wilshire and Crescent Heights, and is actually...

Sometimes I feel like everything on the farm revolves around food, but really everything revolves around everything. On the farm, where I’m in a semester-long Masa program called Eco Israel, a semester-long Masa program in Israel, study agriculture both in the classroom and hands-on in the field where I plant seeds that were saved from last season’s crop. Those seeds...

A Slice of Shalheaven: Off the beaten path

Filed under A slice of Shalheaven, Opinion

I sometimes find myself wondering where I’ll be in 20 years. Oftentimes I take the easy way out and choose not to think about it. For many of us students, it’s hard to imagine any life outside of the classroom. We’ve been in school for as long as we can remember. I’m in 11th grade now, and word on the street is that my academic career is almost over. But am I really...

A slice of Shalheaven: Serene and productive

Whoever said school ends at 4:45 flat-out lied. This isn’t a rant about co-curriculars and how much time they take up. It is, however, a formal shout-out to anyone who is freaking out over a stressful load of homework that is only getting bigger. I know I can easily spend up to three hours a night doing homework. That’s 15 additional hours of schoolwork per week! But...
