To trick or treat, that is the question…and one of the biggest Jewish dilemmas.  Do we celebrate Halloween?  Do we let our children celebrate it?

I remember this dilemma when my brother... read on

    By Mihal Levy

    October 27, 2009 | 3:29 pm

    If you are like me, clutter can become a staple in your home if you are not on top of it, and it makes cleaning that much harder when there is so much stuff around.  So instead of throwing it all away (which I often feel like doing), organize it.  Sounds simple enough right?  But we... read on

  • Hollywood Goes Green

    What do you get when you combine star-studded style, the media and green carpet?  No, not America’s Next Top Model on Astroturf, but the Environmental Media Awards.  There were no styrofoam containers, plastic bags or even hairspray aerosol cans at this event; just Hollywood elite,... read on

    While rummaging through mommy magazines at the check out aisles, I began to notice there were a lot of articles about ways moms relax.  Most of these articles suggested spa retreats, weekend getaways and guided meditation classes.

    A couple of days ago, my son found out that strawberries and raspberries do not come from Trader Joe’s, but a farm, in fact.  Well, he knew that, but never really saw it in person until our visit to farmland.

    I’m living the single life again…vicariously through my friends.  Just for the record, I’m still married…happily married.

    As of recent, I have become the go-to person for advice on love and dating.  Although I am flattered, I can hardly say I’m an expert.  It seems as... read on

    Have you ever used your child as an excuse to get out of something?  Come on, we have all been guilty of it.  “Sorry we have to leave so soon (from your boring party), but Junior has to take a nap and he went to bed late last night.”  “We’d love to come to your Pictionary... read on

  • Treehouse Social Club

    By Mihal Levy

    October 15, 2009 | 1:13 pm

    I figured my son and I could use a little socializing, so where better than a place I heard of called the Treehouse Social Club.  Besides the pseudo treehouse, nothing else was true about the name “Treehouse Social Club.”  There was nothing social about it and it was not a club.... read on
