When Josh Lefkowitz talks about Center Stage, he uses terms like "holy moment" and "the birthing of a writer." To be specific, the 25-year-old actor-turned-playwright is referring to something that happened three years ago, when he had a bit part -- basically "pushing scenery" -- in Center Stage's production of Sweeney Todd. Back then, he often visited the dramaturgy office and regaled resident dramaturg Gavin Witt and former literary manager Madeleine Oldham with stories -- tales of odd jobs he'd had while trying to make it as an actor and of his adulation for monologist Spalding Gray.

Gadi Lefkowitz and Yonah Heller spent almost two hours counting 60,000 canceled stamps before they gave up -- and that was just a small fraction of what the young men and other students at Yeshivat Rambam in Northwest Baltimore hope to collect. "You can't really imagine 6 million," said Lefkowitz, a eighth-grade pupil at the Orthodox Jewish school at 6300 Park Heights Ave. Lefkowitz and Heller, both 13, and their classmates have been working to collect 6 million canceled stamps to represent the number of Jews killed during the Holocaust.

WASHINGTON -- The first time Bernard Lefkowitz saw the woman he would come to call "Leslie Faber," it was an anniversary, the kind that only journalists recognize. Was it year to the day since the retarded teen-ager had been assaulted, or a year to the day the so-called Glen Ridge rape case had come to light? That detail eludes him.But he remembers standing in front of Glen Ridge High School in the spring of 1990, talking to another student. Not one of the boys accused of assaulting Leslie, but someone outside that clique of popular jocks.
