    Orthodox Jews are known to be deeply attached to religious rituals. Their days are filled with them. In addition to the three daily prayers, some observant Jews make it a point to recite at least 100 blessings a day.

    When actual holidays arrive, this attachment only deepens. Take a...

    We've all seen these great organizations that help the needy and the hungry. We've been to their annual galas in Beverly Hills hotels, and we've applauded their celebrity endorsers and prominent honorees.

    In the Jewish Orthodox world, we're familiar with of organizations like...

    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’s Smile

    By David Suissa

    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...
