  • Cool clothes for chilly weather

    By Julie Bien

    October 5, 2015 | 4:04 pm

    Class has been in session for a while now, but that doesn’t mean your back-to-school shopping is over. Outfit your daughter for fall with some of these snuggly suggestions. Just remember, moms: Sweater sets are so passé. 

    Your child will look fierce in the handmade felt ...

  • An Israeli flair for fashion

    February 20, 2013 | 8:44 am

    With a staggering array of fashions from everyone and everywhere to choose from, why should American women buy clothes made by Israeli designers?

    To support the Jewish state, sure. But more likely for the quality, the flattering fit, the colors, the size range and the reasonable...

  • I love Lucy! What is in your backpack?

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    November 7, 2011 | 8:00 pm

    I love Lucy clothes!

    Just like the ads claim they are perfectly packable. While stuck inside for a couple of days in torrential rain while cooking upstairs at Fifita’s guesthouse in Pangai, Ha’apai, Tonga, Dwight asked me “Who is Lucy? And why is her name on all your...

  • Ghosts, Spirits and My Kids’ Wild Imagination…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 23, 2011 | 11:51 am

    Ever since my Grandmother passed away twelve years ago, I have been feeling like I am never alone.  Even if the house is completely silent and free from all and any rambunctious/annoying children, I always feel like there is someone else in there with me.  Being pretty superstitious,...

  • Shopping: Only by Israel

    April 25, 2011 | 11:31 am

    Dive into all things Israeli this month in support of the country’s 63rd birthday. From the unique and creative beauty of Israeli fashion designers’ lines to Israel-based organizations that have made it their mission to help the less fortunate, these pieces reflect the Jewish...

  • To Be or Not to Be, Rich…

    By Julia Bendis

    March 3, 2011 | 10:21 am

    Please tell me how can anyone get ahead in this world, financially that is?  I should rephrase: how can an average person with children get a head in this world?

    I sit here pondering that question while staring at the Orthodontic Invoice for my fifth-grader’s teeth!  Three...

  • Who knew Muslims pray on Friday?

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    November 8, 2009 | 9:58 am

    Coverage in the aftermath of the Fort Hood shooting has been all over the place. This transcript from this “360 exclusive,” between CNN’s Anderson Cooper and the network’s senior editor for Mideast affairs Octavia Nasr, is just incomprehensible. It’s regarding footage of Nidal...

  • Playing God

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    March 12, 2009 | 6:28 pm

    Torch just sent me the Woot shirt of the day, Playing God. “Move over, dinos! Now there’s somethin’ meteor!” For $10, I’d be ordering this shirt if it came in a color other than “Wiped White Off The Face Of The Earth.”

    I also can’t shake the feel that the Almighty looks too much like Mr. Natural. But if you can, order the shirt here.

    Just saw that image on the blog God Spam, under the heading “Progressive Christian T-Shirts.” You’re telling me. It’s from the Going Jesus shop on CafePress. Another design in the collection is “Christian Who Thinks.”

    Commercialism at its finest. Where have I seen and heard this before?

  • Lighter me, lighter wallet

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    August 22, 2008 | 7:20 pm

    Who knew that losing weight would be so expensive?

    Vegetables and fruit cost more than McDonalds. Weight Watchers costs money. A 24-Hour Fitness membership costs money. And, worst of all, buying new clothes in a smaller size costs money.

    I know there are ways to get around that. I...

    August 3, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Saturday the 5th

    Buying vintage helps the disadvantaged when you shop at the National Council of Jewish Women/Los Angeles Thrift Stores. This weekend they launch their new flagship store on the Westside, in an airy, former Pier One space. A "Best of the Best" sale goes on Aug....

    By Sue Fishkoff

    August 25, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In his three decades at the helm of the Thanksgiving Coffee Co. in Fort Bragg, California, Paul Katzeff has pioneered the process of buying coffee beans directly from Third World growers and funneling money back to them after sales to promote economic self-sufficiency and social...

  • A ‘Caring Heart’ for Israel’s Forgotten

    By Miriyam Glazer

    September 12, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    In the grim underground parking lot of the Rishon LeZion shopping mall in central Israel, hundreds of men and women of all ages are nervously sitting, standing restlessly or milling around, their faces weary, their eyes expectant. Judging from the range of skin tones, clothing styles...

  • The Gift of Thrift

    By Song Oh

    March 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    T-shirts $2. Jeans $7. Handwritten signs point to bargains galore at the National Council of Jewish Women/Los Angeles (NCJW/LA) Council Thrift Shop.

    More than simply the promise of finding the great find, thrift stores offer their patrons the opportunity to connect with history and...

  • Shopping Bulimia

    By Karen Lehrman

    March 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    I enjoy shopping for clothes. I also enjoy returning clothes. Sometimes I like the returning even more than the shopping. Does that sound sick to you? Well, maybe it is. But I don't think I'm alone. In fact, I'll bet there are thousands of women out there who ruin the days of...

  • Toy Vey!

    By Amy Sara Clark

    December 6, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Monica Garcia had her daughter-to-be in mind when she designed a modest line of Barbie clothing while she was pregnant last year.

    "Barbie is a slut," she says. Some people "want a doll that's dressed appropriately."

    Garcia, who converted to Judaism four years ago, started the line of...
