  • We got Apples and Oranges and Pears, Oh My!

    By Julia Bendis

    April 28, 2011 | 3:33 pm

    Watching Chelsea Handler the other night made me think of all the idiotic names parents give their children these days.  You might have guessed by that intro that she had none other than Gwyneth Paltrow as a guest on her show.  As Chelsea asked about her daughter Apple, I couldn’t...

  • A Soviet Passover…

    By Julia Bendis

    April 18, 2011 | 3:07 pm

    How do you prepare for Passover when the rest of the world doesn’t stop to observe it?  When the rest of the world takes a break for Christian holidays, and people have time to cook and prepare for a religious celebration, do they realize how much it sucks to be a Jew, a Muslim or...

  • Date Night Phenomenon?

    By Julia Bendis

    April 13, 2011 | 6:02 pm

    I had to write about this phenomenon called ‘Date Night’.  Every couple I know has date nights where they spend an evening away from home, kids, pets, etc, while throwing money away doing it…  Only in America do people label every activity including a simple night out with their...

  • Oh Jared Leto, how little I knew about your band…

    By Julia Bendis

    April 11, 2011 | 2:07 pm

    What started out as a surprise of a lifetime, quickly turned into a XXX porn show for many children and one particular fifth-grader.

    I like to think that I am a pretty fun parent, but when my husband and I surprised our eleven-year-old with tickets to Thirty Seconds to Mars concert,...

  • Sarah Palin must be so proud - Bristol is cashing in!

    By Julia Bendis

    April 7, 2011 | 2:24 pm

    While reading the newspaper, I stumbled upon an article talking about Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol.  Apparently, being an unwed teenage Mother in this country really pays off!  Bristol was named an Ambassador of Candie’s Foundation to speak and spread awareness about being a...

  • Sister Wives, Polygamy, not too bad of an idea…

    By Julia Bendis

    March 14, 2011 | 9:50 pm

    I have to admit that watching the show “Sister Wives” on TLC made me think about what it would be like to have so-called wives in my family.  To tell the truth, it doesn’t seem like such a terrible idea.  If you think about it, the only bad part are too many children by all those...

  • 10 things I love and understand

    By Julia Bendis

    February 25, 2011 | 1:42 pm

    1. Don’t you love those people that use ALL CAPS when typing?  What is the thought there?  That unless you use all capital letters nobody will read your email, or that its a lot more important that other people’s emails?  And furthermore the same people that use all caps, don’t know...

  • Valentine’s Day Peep Show!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 14, 2011 | 6:14 pm

    I really don’t like Valentine’s Day!  I hate everything about it, the stupid, corny Hallmark cards, the over-priced flowers, the overcrowded restaurants, the need to out-do each other with pricey gifts, etc…  I am not saying that we shouldn’t show our love for the people in our...

  • Israeli soldiers deliver Palestinian baby

    February 7, 2011 | 10:37 am

    Israeli soldiers delivered a Palestinian woman’s baby boy inside a military ambulance.

    The woman, a resident of the Jordan Valley, called for help early Monday morning, according to the Israel Defense Forces. She lives in an area unreachable by ambulance, so the soldiers gave the...

  • My Interview with the Department of Homeland Security!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 1, 2011 | 10:45 am

    Years ago, I had applied for a position with the Department of Homeland Security.  Why would I apply for a position with the Homeland Security?  Who knows…  Remember my post about my ADD, and pins in my ass?  Well, that’s why.  This was right after 9/11, and they just formed this new...

  • Sandra Bullock’s Baby’s Brit

    May 3, 2010 | 11:25 am

    For most media outlets, the headlines from People’s recent interview with Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock were that she was dropping her cad of a husband and was in the process of adopting a baby from New Orleans.

    The big news for Jewish publications: She reportedly helped...

  • Baby, How Times Have Changed: A Look at Childbirth Through the Ages

    April 13, 2010 | 5:39 pm

    Humans have been mystified by pregnancy and the birth process since Cain first peeped his head out of Eve’s womb. In our desire to perfect the way in which the next generation is brought into the world, we’ve scrutinized both childbirth and the women going through it.

    In her...

  • It’s a girl! Mazal tov to Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen

    By JewishJournal.com

    October 20, 2007 | 3:07 pm


    Facts are scare, but Isla Fisher, fiancee of Sacha Baron Cohen, gave birth to a baby girl yesterday, according to Australian and British media reports.

    No name yet, no further details, other than the blessed event took place here in Los Angeles.

    This Baby Borat is an American citizen!

    And from the looks of this photo of Isla, shot earlier this week, it was about time.

    Mazal tov! Jagshemash! Ani v’at, at v’ani, chaverim b’Habonim!

  • It’s all downhill from here

    By Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin

    April 19, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I just love newborn babies, especially at around 3 months old. As I brush my face along theirs, I love their baby smell, their soft, smooth skin and their facial expressions. The fact is it's a joy caring for babies. They don't talk back, they don't miss curfews, and they don't...
  • Going in After Katrina

    By David Finnigan

    September 15, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    After a catastrophe like Hurricane Katrina, sometimes an aid worker helps by delivering a baby, sometimes the job is just delivering a cheeseburger -- or perhaps a thousand cheeseburgers. And sometimes the simple act of providing a yarmulke to an old man can provide solace.

    So it was...

  • A Noodge Too Far

    By Jill Franklin

    December 3, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    When I got engaged, my mom's dearest girlfriends, whom I affectionately call "The Crones," all sent me a card. On the front it said,

    "Now that you are engaged, no one will ever ask you again 'When are you getting married?'" On the inside it read, "So, when are you going to have a...

  • A Real ‘Baby Boomer’

    By JTA Staff

    July 4, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Israelis are outraged by a picture of a Palestinian baby dressed as a suicide bomber. The baby was photographed wearing a mock suicide bomber's uniform, complete with sticks of fake explosives and a red headband that read Hamas. Israeli newspapers published the photograph, seized in...

  • Bundles of Joy

    By J.D. Smith

    January 17, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The stork has been awfully busy lately.

    It seems as though everyone I know is having a baby. A couple I haven't heard from in months sent a postcard with a picture of what I thought was a Sharpei puppy -- it turns out the little boy's name is Jesse. I didn't even know they were...

  • Diagnosis: Grandfather

    By Tom Tugend

    December 27, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    "The Grandfather Thing" by Saul Turteltaub (Tallfellow Press, $16.95).

    Saul Turteltaub, whom I've known for a good many years, is a funny man and a funny television writer. If you laughed at "The Carol Burnett Show," "The Jackie Gleason Show," "That Girl" or "The Cosby Show," tip...

  • Shalhevet’s Funeral

    By Judy Lash Balint

    April 5, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Have you ever been to the funeral of a 10-month-old? It has to be one of the most unnatural of human experiences. The burial of an infant who was deliberately murdered by terrorists is all the more tragic for the baseless hate it represents.

    On Sunday, in the ancient cemetery of...

  • Hoo-wah!

    By Michael Levin

    February 15, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Memo to first-time fathers: If your baby is crying, she's probably wet.

    Or tired. Or hungry. Or angry. Or confused about what's happening in the big, new, strange world she lives in.

    Unless it's something else.

    My daughter is seven months old now, and she has the poise of a prom...

  • Birth Pangs

    By Rabbi Janet Ross Marder

    April 15, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    The other day, I got a sample of Pampers in the mail. It doesn't happen very often now, fortunately. For a while there, almost every day brought free diapers, coupons for baby food, baby lotion, baby photographs. I passed them on to my sister, who has a year-old son, and told myself...

    Grandkids Inc.

    Until children reach a certain age, parents seethem simply as beloved offspring. Flesh of their flesh. Withbittersweet nostalgia, they remember all, from the Gerber days tograduation day.

    But then it happens: the transformation.

    Suddenly, when your parents look...

  • Achre 5757

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    May 1, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    A couple with whom I'm close had their first child, so I ran to the bookstore to get them our favorite book on child care. I had forgotten the exact title (it was always "the baby book") and the author's name, so I thought I'd just scan the shelf until it turned up. Shelf? Try...
