    Have you heard of Noa Tishby? If not- now is the time to memorize that name. Tishby is a household name in Israel, and also maintains an impressive acting career in the United States. In fact, I believe she is the most appreciated by Israelis than all her Israelis- in- Hollywood...

    By Ilana Angel

    June 27, 2012 | 12:13 am

    I was very much looking forward to talking to Twitter’s @AsianPosh1.  She has been following me on Twitter for a long time and has been truly lovely. She defends me to the haters, reads my reality blog and my lifestyle blog, and always has a kind word for everyone who needs it. ...

    With the passing of Pope John...

  • Preteen Advocate Educates Nation About Diabetes

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    At first glance, Emma Klatman's summer vacation sounds like that of a typical 11 year old. She attended summer camp and traveled to Washington, D.C. Instead of merely a participant at camp, however, Klatman was a featured speaker. And in our nation's capitol, she came not to sightsee...

  • The Sabra Seduction

    By Gali Wexler

    January 2, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    It was an offer I could refuse -- but only for a short time. Yaniv was his name, and his sweet entreaty epitomized the dating habits of the macho, cocky Israeli man (can you say caveman with a cell phone and Chanel sunglasses?). He cunningly wanted to prepare hot cocoa for me in his...

    By Mike Levy

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Jennifer Stein wears two hats at City Hall. You could say one of them is a kippah.

    The recent Stanford University grad, 23, is the South Valley Area director in Mayor James Hahn's Office of the Neighborhood Advocate. She is also Hahn's liaison to the Jewish community.

    The...
