  • Boys to men: Jewish education helps prepare kids for life

    August 6, 2014 | 3:25 pm

    Raising three boys to be well-rounded, menschy men isn’t easy, and I admit to making one or two mistakes (per hour) in my efforts to guide my sons toward actions that reflect soulfulness, integrity and compassion.

    As my children grow, so do my expectations of their accountability...

  • One more reason to love Boy Scouts of America…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 19, 2012 | 3:08 pm

    I’ve always had an issue with Boy Scouts.  Plain and simple, something rubbed me the wrong way about the whole organization; the children standing in full nerd-gear at grocery stores trying to sell me some crap to raise money for G-d-knows what; the badges they are supposed to...

  • Compassion for Octomom

    By Ilana Angel

    May 2, 2012 | 9:08 am

    This morning I walked around my son’s room repeating, “I love this boy”, over and over again.  I said it when I picked up the wet towel off the floor, when I shut the dripping faucet, when I found socks under the bed, and when I took dishes from his desk to the kitchen.  I had...

  • Baseball and G-d

    I trust in G-d
    I love my Country
    And will respect its laws
    I will play fair
    And strive to win
    But win or lose I will always do my best

    This is the pledge the players chant before every Little League game, including my twelve-year-old son.  Not only do I cringe every single time I...

  • Mothers, Sons & Lessons in Love

    By Ilana Angel

    March 4, 2012 | 1:54 pm

    My heart has been broken.  When my father died it broke in a way that it will never recover from.  There is the heartbreak of loss and sorrow, and the heartbreak of love.  Both take your breath away and you are certain you will never recover.  While my heart will never be the same...

  • From the mouths of the babes…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 22, 2012 | 9:00 pm

    Somehow I’ve known all along that kids don’t stay kids for long (I know I’m a genius), but I didn’t expect to get ‘educated’ about various sexual subjects by a twelve-year-old boy.  More importantly… my twelve-year-old boy.  When this school year started, so did the...

  • Boys and their animal instincts

    By Julia Bendis

    September 5, 2011 | 5:25 pm

    What is it about children that makes them want to jump all over people, me in particular?  I am sitting on the couch, minding my own business when out of nowhere my six-year-old son decides to pounce on me.  Not only pounce like a cheetah, or a lion or pick your own animal but start...

  • 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...

  • Orthodox youth not immune to high-risk lifestyles

    By Julie G Fax

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A few weeks ago, Joel Bess gathered his group of 15 teenage boys and took them to the funeral of a 21-year-old who had died of an overdose. Like the teenagers, the youth who died was Orthodox and didn't fit the yeshiva mold and wound up on a path of high-risk behavior. After the...
  • Seeking Redemption

    By Ed Solomon

    April 3, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    In college, I tutored in a maximum-security prison for kids who had committed violent crimes. I met a 17-year-old boy there who had killed a 16-year-old boy earlier that year. He had been tried as an adult and sentenced to life. Though we were only together for a couple sessions, he...

  • Rabbi Jailed

    By Julie G Fax

    December 13, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    A rabbi accused of molesting three boys at a Chabad elementary school was arrested Dec. 3 and remained at the L.A. Men's Central Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail as The Journal went to press.

    Rabbi Mordechai Yomtov's arrest on 10 felony counts of committing lewd acts with children came...
