    I had lunch last week with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time. I missed him and as we sat for lunch I noticed things. All things I’ve noticed before, but to be aware of them all at once was interesting. For example, he isn't a vegetarian like me, but ordered vegetarian. He put...

  • Flames You Can’t Put Out

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    Until recently, I thought the idea of “chemistry” was somewhat made up – a term people used ex post facto to justify liking a certain physical aesthetic.  Like if a guy went on a date with a brunette and he really just has a thing for blondes, he would say “oh that girl was...

    Dating is difficult enough without asking for a guarantee. Imagine my surprise when the last guy I went out with wanted just that.

    I had met "Bob" at a Jewish networking event. We took a nice walk afterward, talked about what we were and weren't looking for in a relationship,...

    What nice Jewish girl hasn't heard this from her mother: "You should meet a nice Jewish boy!"

    My mom was no different.

    She would constantly urge me, "Go to synagogue. A Jewish mixer. Or a Shabbat dinner. That's where you'll meet lots of nice Jewish men."

    But I never cared for...

  • Red Flag From Cupid

    By Mark Miller

    July 3, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Oh, sure, it started promisingly enough. Rhonda and I had each seen the other's photo and profile on a singles Web site, granted one another profile approval and were now talking on the phone for the first time.

    Things were going pleasantly until Rhonda suggested that I choose a...

  • Living Through Chemistry

    The ancient rabbis practiced a relatively simple form of medicine: cabbage for sustenance, beets for healing.

    It was easier then to prescribe, although harder to heal.

    "Woe to the house through which vegetables are always passing," sums up the Talmud. There were no guarantees then...
