  • The re-‘birth’ of hope?

    June 19, 2013 | 4:43 pm

    Truisms are born to be disproven. The assertion that the era of the two-state solution is over has been frequently propounded of late by Israelis from left to right. To make their case, they point to the irreversibility of Israel’s presence in the West Bank. 

    Another truism of...

  • Court rules Judaism, not place of birth, is grounds for Israeli citizenship

    May 15, 2012 | 1:39 pm

    The Haifa District Court on Tuesday rejected an appeal submitted by Professor Uzzi Ornan, who sought to compel Israel’s Interior Ministry to recognize his citizenship based on the fact that he was born in Israel, rather than on the grounds that he was Jewish.

  • New age or new edge

    July 22, 2011 | 3:48 pm

    You’re getting sleeeeepy. Verrry sleeeepy.

    Then — bam! — it’s all over, and you’ve delivered a baby.

    OK, it’s not nearly as easy as that, but you might be surprised by how hypnosis is being used these days. It’s not just about getting people to stop smoking or lose...

    By Hollywood Jew

    June 15, 2011 | 3:06 pm

    The Oscar winning actress and her fiancé Benjamin Millepied are now the proud parents of a baby boy. Born Wed. morning, that’s pretty much all we know for sure.  The famously private actress is keeping tight-lipped about the baby’s name and place of birth, and has not released...

  • Angelina Jolie’s Tattoos.

    By Julia Bendis

    May 15, 2011 | 6:07 pm

    As I looked at pictures of Angelina Jolie’s tattoos, I couldn’t help but want to get some more of my own.  The longitude and latitude ink of her childrens’ bithplaces looks so neat on her arm.  But not wanting to be a copy cat, I thought of putting actual names of cities where...

     We saw the Romantic Comedies.  We read the books.  

    And here’s the stuff they left out:

    THE FIRST TRIMESTER: 


    —You’ll probably develop carpel tunnel syndrome from spending over an hour a day on Google trying to figure out if those niggling pains in your pelvic area that you’ve...

  • A Manual for the Auntie-to-Be

    By Erika Dreifus

    April 8, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It seemed that lots of people -- including total strangers -- had plenty of advice to offer my sister and my brother-in-law before the birth of their first child, an event the entire extended family anticipated for late summer 2003. And it wasn't just a matter of kindly (if...

  • Cherishing Passover

    By Marisa N. Pickar

    April 3, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    As a child, Passover seders in my family were rushed affairs more about the meal than the meaning of the holiday. Hungry children and adults quickly read through the haggadah.

    Surreptitious bites of matzah were silently swallowed. And all the while the aromas from the kitchen tickled...

  • The Firstborn

    By Rabbi Michelle Missaghieh

    June 22, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    I remember the moment I was in the doctor's office staring at the screen. The technician was pointing to the monitor where I could see the heartbeat of the fetus growing inside of me. I saw it pulse and was both delighted and awestruck. Then I asked, "Does it have the same heartbeat...

  • 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...
