    Someone I care about hurt my feelings yesterday. It was not malicious, or purposeful, but that didn't make it hurt any less. As I cried about it I wondered what it is about a person that allows them to act with no sense of decency. I was kind to this person and in the end was not...

    I love my older sister very much and felt the need to write about her today. I mention her often here, but do not think I have ever dedicated an entire blog to her.  It is time.  This weekend my sister was gracious and kind in a way that I would like to think I would also be.  She...

    Is it too much to ask that people be decent when dating?  If you are looking to get laid, looking for love, or not even sure what you are looking for, why can’t you just be decent?  Why is it so hard to take the feelings of others into consideration when dating?  I truly just don’t...

    It poured rain in Los Angeles for most of Sunday.  It is now Monday and it is still raining.  This city does not do well in the rain.  Those of us who came here from places with actual weather are easily separated from the natives because for the most part, we are the ones who know...

    Imagine a rabbi encountering a statue of Zeus in Roman Palestine, circa 70 to 300 C.E. -- a monotheist's nightmare.

    "The myth is that he would have uttered something like the Yiddish 'gevalt,'" said professor Yaron Z. Eliav of the University of Michigan, who recently spoke about...

    "At the moment of conception," says the Talmud, "an angel takes the drop of semen from which the child will be formed and brings it before God. 'Master of the Universe, what shall be the fate of this drop?' asks the angel. 'Will it develop into a strong person or a weak one? A wise...
