    I'm a Chabadnik.

    That makes no sense to most people who know me: I'm not highly observant, I don't pray at a Chabad house, and the only time I danced with Jon Voight at the Chabad telethon, I embarrassed myself by chewing gum on camera.

    But it's true: My Jewish identity was nurtured...

  • Eight Crazy Lights

    By Leora Alhadeff

    December 18, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    A kosher menorah can be fashioned out of any material, so why not get creative? During the Festival of Lights we light the Chanukah menorah -- a modern-day symbol of the candelabra used in the Temple, also known as a chanukiah -- to commemorate the miracle of the oil and to...
