    It's sexy and titillating to read about people getting kicked out of synagogues, which was the subject of a cover story in this paper a few weeks ago.

    I don't know about you, but I got this frisson of excitement while reading the story, like when you can't take your eyes off a...

    Laura Benichou was born on June 9, 1998, with a hole in her heart. This hole probably saved her life, because she was also born without her main pulmonary artery.

    The blood had to go somewhere, so it went through the hole. Her condition would take too long to explain, but one result...

    You can hang out for years at the Pico-Robertson intersection: Shop for fixtures at McNoon Crystal Lighting, get grande drips at Starbucks, carpets at Moghaddam Rugs, mezzuzahs at Schmulies, a Hollywood head shot at Award Studios, some Zantac at Walgreens after you had a pastrami at...

    Growing up in Morocco, the word "miracle" was a familiar one. I remember how my parents, especially my mother, would bring up the great Moroccan mystics at all times of the day -- either to pray for a miracle, or to thank them for one.

    No miracle was too small. If a plate would...

    "And after 11 months and 30 days, He rested, and Moshe told his people that they shall journey through airport security to gather with their individual tribes; that they shall partake in the holy feast of turkey and anything starchy in the orange family; and rejoice in a brew of...
