  • Rest in Peace Leiby Kletzky

    By Ilana Angel

    July 13, 2011 | 10:18 am

    My heart is broken this morning having awoken to the news that Leiby Kletzky, the 8 year old boy from Brooklyn, who has been missing for two days, has been found dead.  I have been praying for him to be safe and it is so sad that this beautiful child has passed in such an inhuman...

  • Everyone is Suddenly Irish on March 17th!

    By Julia Bendis

    March 18, 2011 | 11:33 am

    Why does everyone become Irish on St. Patrick’s day?  Even the Jews.  When has it become a good thing for Jews to start drinking?  Have you ever seen Jewish people drink?  No, that’s because most of us can’t hold down our liquor, and its not pretty.

    I am definitely the “drinker” in...

  • 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...

  • Decals on my car - don’t want any!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 10, 2011 | 11:45 am

    Does having a decal of children, dogs and your entire family on your car make you a better Mom?  And more importantly, does NOT having one make me a bad Mom?

    I was pondering that question as I sat in traffic on the 405 freeway the other day.  As usual, I was stuck behind a Minivan...

  • Behind the Music: The Wedding Singer

    By Michael Aushenker

    November 7, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    In the 1998 hit comedy "The Wedding Singer," the eponymous character was a nice Jewish boy named Robbie. At the Sept. 2 Century City Park Hyatt reception of 30-something newlyweds Daphna Ghozland and David Hollander, the wedding singer is a nice Jewish boy named Robbie. True, the...

  • Circumcision Lite

    By Susanna Crosby Perrin

    April 12, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    An undeniable physical reminder of a man's connection to Judaism, circumcision has been an important focus of the first days of a boy's life since before we received the Torah. However, for almost as long, there have been people who question the act of circumcision and those who have...

  • Tragedy or Exploitation?

    By Helen Schary Motro

    March 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    The photograph of the Palestinian father cradling his terrified son moments before the boy was killed in Gaza this fall was viewed live on television and reproduced on the front pages of newspapers around the globe. Like the photograph of the boy with hands raised standing in the...

  • The Oldest Diary

    By Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben

    October 5, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    There is something otherworldly about the experience of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. It is perhaps the preeminent spiritual-cultural paradox in all of Jewish life. When girls and boys focus so intensely on this personal lifecycle event, each possesses a transcendent, timeless and eternal...
  • Raising Boys

    By Jane Ulman

    June 22, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    This past year, Toys R Us was excoriated for proposing and, in some instances, constructing separate "Boys World" and "Girls World" sections. But public outrage quickly forced the 707-store retailer to abandon this gender-based marketing concept, which it euphemistically referred to...

  • To the Graduates

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 15, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    I can't remember a word spoken by Ira Goldstein, the Plainview (NY) High School valedictorian, Class of 1965, but I'm sure his graduation address was brilliant. Ira, who apparently was in the Philosophy Club with me for three now-forgotten years, was the most brilliant boy in a class...

  • Memories of Summer Camp

    By Gene Lichtenstein

    May 25, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    My first and only experience at summer camp was magical, or so it seemed to me. I entered a world I had never known before, and by summer's end had gained some recognition into who I was and who I was not. No mean feat at 13.

    A city boy, I developed at camp a feel for the country,...

  • Marching to a Different Drum

    By Michael Aushenker

    March 30, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Building an audience has become something of a lifestyle for the group Guster. Formed at Tufts University, the band Guster consists of three Jewish boys -- Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner on guitars and vocals; Brian Rosenworcel on percussion -- who graduated from the Boston-area...
  • A Better Strategy

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    History never precisely repeats itself. I was cleaning up after dinner the other evening when I heard my daughter, Samantha, now nearly 17, on the phone; she was talking with a guy named Vinnie.

    "Vinnie?" I said, as she hung up. "I think we should be focusing on Jewish guys now, don't...

  • Dear Deborah

    By Deborah Berger

    May 7, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    Detail from the cover of "Boy MeetsGirl," a romance comic book, 1947

    Suffocating Sweetheart

    Dear Deborah,

    I am engaged to a wonderful man whose "littleproblem" has become very, very big during the course of our two-yearcourtship and has grown acute during our engagement. He was always...
