    [UPDATE] The Bar Mitzvah, re-examined


    The egregious, licentious and thoroughly awful video that is circulating ‘celebrating’ a Bar Mitzvah contains so much that is offensive that it requires restraint to hold oneself to three ways in which this display slaughters the spirit....

  • Bar mitzvah video boy’s mom: ‘He’s got friends at Neiman Marcus’

    August 13, 2013 | 1:51 pm

    For most boys reaching bar mitzvah age, donning a prayer shawl is exciting enough. But Sam Horowitz of Dallas knew he wanted more.

    November 28, 2012 | 3:26 pm

    Most Jewish parents don’t name their child Kristina, but Ukraine — when it was still the former Soviet Union — was very secular. “So my parents just gave me what was the cool, European name of the moment, not wanting to give me some very traditional and typical Russian name like...

  • The Bachelorette Recap – Hometown Dates

    By Ilana Angel

    July 3, 2012 | 6:36 pm

    We are back in the States, which is both good and bad.  Good because it means we are close to the end, and bad because it means we have to sit through a lot of recapping.  Emily needs to reflect on all her travels and the four men she has left.  I’m not big on reality television...

    August 15, 2011 | 10:37 pm

    Bravo is home to some great reality television.  Now it is also home to two of the worst shows on television.  I sat through Millionaire Matchmaker and Most Eligible Dallas tonight.  It was painful and really awful. Do they really think we will watch again?  These two shows totally...

    As Allie Goldman’s plane was making its descent on the blazing 97-degree Midland/Odessa airport in west Texas, the landscape dotted with oil dykes looked foreign to the Dallas native even though it was the same state.

    But Goldman’s work schedule for the weekend was familiar:...
