Joan Rivers 1933 - 2014

I cried today when I heard that Joan Rivers died. It is a loss I cannot seem to wrap my head around. I have been trying to write about her for hours and it has been very hard. How do you... read on

    I had two dates this week. I am trying. I try more than any of my other single friends. I like men, would like one in my life, and so I try. I date online, get set up by friends, am contacted by men who read my work here at jewishjournal.com, and on particularly good hair days I... read on

    I have tried to write about the passing of Robin Williams since I heard of his death. I was saddened by the loss in a way that left me unable to articulate what I was feeling. I had the honor of meeting Mr. Williams and he was lovely, kind, charming, and funny. His talent was... read on

  • Canada 101: Home Sweet Home

    By Ilana Angel

    I have lived in the United States for 23 years, but Canada is still home. I think of Toronto as being “where I’m from”, even though I have lived in a lot of different places and not in Toronto for decades. I love being in Canada. Anywhere is Canada. I’m here for a week with my son... read on

    I had a date Tuesday with a man we’ll call “Dave”. I know his name was Dave because that is how he introduced himself. He is 53 years old, works in medical sales, divorced, 2 adult children, and a seemingly nice guy. He was sweet on the phone, sent me a rather funny text, so we... read on

    By Ilana Angel

    August 8, 2014 | 1:40 am

    I have been writing about the murder of Alfred Wright for months. The death of this man in Jasper, Texas has haunted me. I do not understand why there have been no arrests in what can only be described as a modern day lynching. For this murder to still be unsolved is a grave... read on

  • Motherhood 101: Discussing Israel

    By Ilana Angel

    August 5, 2014 | 11:01 am

    I was born in Israel. Hebrew is my first language. I put my son through 10 years of private Jewish Day School, and sent him to Israel when he was 12 because I felt he would better connect with the meaning of his Bar Mitzvah if he had been to the Holy Land and the birthplace of his... read on

  • Dating, Motherhood, Growing Pains & Insomnia

    July 31, 2014 | 7:09 pm

    I haven’t had a good date in a long time. The truth is I haven’t had a date of any kind in a long time. I simply cannot be bothered to put myself out there. I’m not sure if it is because I am officially jaded, or just tired, but either way I am not dating. It is a shame because one... read on
