September 29, 2012 | 12:54 pm

    The high holidays this year marked my first Jewish holiday experience with the Englishman.  It was a little stressful for me because I have a clear view of who I am in terms of my faith, but how he rolled though the festivities was unknown to me.  He is Jewish of course, but were... read on

  • Yom Kippur – My Religion, My Faith

    By Ilana Angel

    September 24, 2012 | 10:56 pm

    Tuesday evening marks the beginning of Yom Kippur.  It is a Day of Atonement and the holiest of all days for the Jewish religion.  Since many of my readers are not Jewish, and have written to ask what the holiday means, I thought I would take this opportunity to share the... read on

    I was invited to attend an event in Los Angeles this past weekend that I found both intriguing and depressing.  I was tempted to not go but my curiosity trumped disdain so I opted to attend.  It was for an online dating site that is designed for Sugar Daddies and the women who want... read on

    I had an opportunity to speak with Stacey on the phone and let me just say, wow. This is a remarkable woman and I am both impressed and inspired by her. She is a tough talking, hardcore, gun-slinging prosecutor. She is also a loving and caring mother, and an involved and aware Jew.... read on

    I appreciate that religion, politics, and sex are taboo subjects to talk about. The problem is that I write about my worldview for a Jewish publication, we have a Presidential election coming up, and I am in a new relationship, so all I want to write about is religion, politics and... read on

  • A Bad Back, Blessings & a Remarkable Son

    By Ilana Angel

    A couple of weeks ago I strained my back.  I took a yoga class and turned in a way that I don’t think my body is meant to go.  I felt it happen and it has been bothering me ever since.  I’ve taken pills, gotten a shot, and had acupuncture.  Everything is working, but sadly only... read on
