  • Happy Birthday Dad

    By Ilana Angel

    November 22, 2013 | 8:28 am

    Today would have been my father’s 75th birthday. I miss him so much there is a physical ache in my heart. He was my biggest cheerleader, the shoulder I cried on, my inspiration to do well, and my in case of emergency person. No matter what obstacle I faced, he knew exactly what to...

    Jewish Journal

    July 18, 2013 | 1:24 pm

    Chi-town mayor Rahm Emanuel had some fun at Taste of Chicago. (Please try your best to ignore the videographer's vertical recording faux pas.)

    What do you think of the Jewish mayor's subtle dance moves? We give him a 5 ... You can do better, Mr. Emanuel.

  • Mother, Son, Dating & a Dancing Queen at the Bus

    By Ilana Angel

    April 23, 2013 | 9:47 am

    When my son was thirteen he came to me and announced he was going to leave home for college and attend in another city.  He respectfully and adorably informed me I had four years to “find a man to replace him”.  If I was not in a relationship when he was off to college, he would go...

  • The Dance of Love

    By Ilana Angel

    July 18, 2012 | 10:00 pm

    I have been dating a man for a little over four months.  By dating of course I mean I have been in a relationship.  From our first date there was a connection and we simply fell into a relationship without really dating.  It has been fun, effortless, complicated, and exhausting.  I...

  • Dancing With The Stars Gets Personal

    By Ilana Angel

    April 3, 2012 | 8:28 pm

    This week is about the stars dancing to a song from a memorable year for them.  It is sappy and dramatic, everyone cries telling their personal stories, and the sympathy vote is put into play.  Some were actually quite touching, but others were hilarious.  Sorry, but come on! This...

  • DWTS: The New Season

    By Ilana Angel

    March 20, 2012 | 9:25 am

    I love this show.  I adore Tom Bergeron, like blogging about how dumb Brooke Burke Charvet is, am a closet ballroom dancer, and at the end of the day this show is easy.  It is fun, requires no thinking, and it is exciting to see careers long over get a boost.  This is good...

  • Dancing With The Stars - UPDATED

    By Ilana Angel

    November 22, 2011 | 1:09 am

    The finals are finally here and let me just say that it feels like this season has been on forever.  It’s been fun though and I am happy Ricki and JR are in the finals.  If Rob Kardashian, who I actually think is quite sweet, wins this show I will lose my faith in humanity.  I get...

  • Dancing With The Stars – Broadway Week - UPDATE

    By Ilana Angel

    October 25, 2011 | 11:00 am

    I love this show.  Truly love it. It is because I love it so much that I am annoyed that Brooke Burke Charvet is ruining it.  Her voice is annoying, her questions are ridiculous, and she does not need to be there.  Tom could totally do this show by himself.  The contestants can get...

  • Dancing With The Stars - UPDATED

    By Ilana Angel

    October 5, 2011 | 12:21 am

    Last night I went to the taping of Dancing With the Stars.  The new set is beautiful and I must say that the crew there is lovely.  From the pages to the camera guys, they are all very sweet and greet you with smiles.  I think television tapings are a lot of waiting and not much fun,...

  • Dancing With the Stars from the Good Seats

    By Ilana Angel

    October 4, 2011 | 2:13 pm

    Last night I went to the live taping of Dancing With the Stars.  The new set is beautiful and I must say that the crew there is lovely.  From the pages to the camera guys, they are all very sweet and greet you with smiles.  I think television tapings are a lot of waiting and not much...

  • Jersey Shore vs. Chaz Bono – Who is Classy? Who is Trashy?

    By Ilana Angel

    September 18, 2011 | 3:48 pm

    Anyone who thinks Chaz Bono appearing on Dancing With the Stars is bad for America, should watch last week’s Jersey Shore, and then shut the hell up.  I love the kids from the shore as much as the next person, but they should be under attack, not Chaz.  Chaz Bono is a lovely man...

  • Rosh Hashanah ‘in the house tonight’ dances into the new year

    September 13, 2011 | 6:01 pm

    Aish brings together rhythm, beats and davening for their Rosh Hashanah ‘in the house tonight’ dancing spectacle that parodies LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem.  Here’s the chorus from the lyrics, but be sure to watch the video for the full effect.

    Rosh Hashanah’s in the house tonight
    All the world is passing through the light
    Let’s all get written in the book of Life
    Shana Tova—it’s High Holiday time

     

  • My Search for Manny Pacquiao Leads Me to Ryan O’Neal?  Score!

    By Ilana Angel

    September 13, 2011 | 1:46 pm

    I love Manny Pacquiao.  I think he is an amazing human being and it is my new mission to meet him.  I want to shake his hand and tell him I love him.  By shaking his hand of course I mean I want to hug him.  I am quite certain that if this happens, or rather when this happens, I will...

  • Why Chaz Bono Just Might Win Dancing With The Stars

    By Ilana Angel

    September 3, 2011 | 10:57 am

    I love watching Dancing With The Stars.  It is entertaining, mindless fun, plus Tom Bergeron is brilliant.  I could do without the judges most of the time, but with the help of my remote, I look forward to this show each year and the excitement begins with the announcement of the...

  • Dancing With the Stars:  So Much For the A-Lister Idea

    By Ilana Angel

    August 29, 2011 | 9:54 pm

    The latest cast of Dancing With the Stars has been revealed and it’s not great.  I love this show and always look forward to hearing who is going to give it a try, but this cast is hilarious if you consider all the hoopla they talked about in getting A-listers.

    There is not an...

  • Jersey Shore: I am almost embarrassed to admit how much I love this show!

    By Ilana Angel

    August 19, 2011 | 3:03 pm

    Week three of Jersey Shore in Italy is once again brilliant.  Knowing there is no such thing as unscripted reality television, Jersey Shore shines in a sea of dullness because no matter how much MTV might try to stir up drama to make good television, the personalities of these kids...

  • Dancing in Rabin Square

    May 4, 2011 | 10:53 am

    I have danced in Rabin Square!  That’s a major happening in Tel Aviv the night of Yom HaAtzmaut, Independence Day in Israel. I have bounced my noise-making hammer off my fellow dancers all around me. That is also a major happening on Independence Day. I have no idea what the...

  • Dancing on edge of memories in former café space

    By Gary Wexler

    March 30, 2011 | 10:31 am

    There is a tiny two-block alleyway in West Los Angeles that runs on a diagonal from South Barrington Avenue east to Pico Boulevard. The backs of small industrial buildings border one side. On the other, a chain link fence shields a packinghouse or shipping service. To look at it, you...

    The Gift of Culture

  • Two Shows Set the Stage for Chanukah

    By Robert David Jaffee

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Two winters ago, in one of its traditional Victorian teas, A Noise Within (ANW), the classical repertory theater company in Glendale, staged a series of holiday readings from actors as varied as Ed Asner and Fred Savage. One of ANW's own troupe members, Len Lesser, in his inimitable...

  • Buenos Aires Let Me Dance to Your Beat

    By Anthea Gerrie

    March 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    In Buenos Aires you wouldn't know about the Argentine economy's disastrous crash -- except, perhaps, by chatting with your taxi driver and discovering he was a former tycoon.

    BA, as old hands call it, has retained its prosperous appearance and cosmopolitan cool, and it remains...

  • Dancing the Chai Life

    By Gaby Wenig

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    When Sarah Sommer started the Chai Folk Ensemble with eight other young girls in 1964, she had modest expectations. The young women practiced Israeli folk dancing in Sommer's basement in Winnipeg, Canada, stepping in time to recorded music. When they started performing for live...

  • And There Was Music

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 3, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    At Sinai Akiba Academy recently, Bryna Vener vigorously conducted close to 100 first- through-eighth-graders in a passionate rendition of "Hava Nagila" as students danced in their seats. If the atmosphere was celebratory, it was because the assembly was a dress rehearsal for the...
