  • A Manual for the Auntie-to-Be

    By Erika Dreifus

    April 8, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It seemed that lots of people -- including total strangers -- had plenty of advice to offer my sister and my brother-in-law before the birth of their first child, an event the entire extended family anticipated for late summer 2003. And it wasn't just a matter of kindly (if...

  • Money Buys Control

    By Bill Boyarsky

    April 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    The angry man in the back of the room at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana was shaking his fist and calling us crooks.

    I made a big mistake -- eye contact. With me in his range, he raised his hand, and I think his middle finger, and yelled, "You!" Being a city ethics...

  • Exile the So-So Seder

    By Sandee Brawarsky

    April 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Some people like their Passover seders just as they remember them: the same lines recited by the same relatives with the same emphasis, the same songs, jokes and foods, the same delicate glassware that picks up the light in a certain way, reflecting past and present.

  • The Art of Religion

    By Julie G Fax

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    How did Israelite religion develop and evolve in its earliest years? What influences led to the centralization of power during the First Temple period? And how did changing perceptions of God fit into all of this?

    These questions will be raised and answered this week not by a...

  • Love and Loyalty

    By Lia del Sesto

    May 22, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    We would always say that we were the ambassadors of love and happiness, causing people to smile as they passed by us, the chemistry almost touchable.

    At that point, the fact that he was a Jew and I was an Italian Catholic didn't seem to make much difference. We were in love and that...

    Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, in the early afternoon, I visit my younger brother at his nursing home, a mile from my home in Providence, R.I.

    I bring him grapes and a banana because he can eat only soft foods, and I also bring him the first section of the previous day's...

    Got some time between services and your next Rosh Hashana meal? Unwinding with a book may sound nice, but perhaps that Jackie Collins paperback isn't quite appropriate to the day. Try "Seven Heavens: Inspirational Stories to Elevate Your Soul," instead. Based on his work...

    On the afternoon of Monday, Sept. 4, American swimmer Mark Spitz won his seventh gold medal at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, and set his seventh consecutive world record. It was a feat unprecedented in Olympic history, and the handsome 22-year-old Californian became an instant...

    Think you've never heard of Yitzak Asner? Think again. Like so many in Hollywood, Yitz went with his middle name, Edward, to succeed in showbiz. And though Ed Asner dropped the Yitzak, he never dropped Judaism. Tonight and tomorrow night, the politically minded actor stars...

    "Rabbi," I responded, "during this last hour alone I have heard two mentions of excommunication...

    I'm seeing someone. Let's call her Alison. We're dating. We're in that very gray area between being total strangers and celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. Three months into it and people are already asking when we're getting married. At this point, we're cautiously...

    By Ellie Kahn

    December 27, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    In my family, death and funerals seem to inspire joking. Maybe it's discomfort, but it also seems to be a lack of concern and heaviness about the whole thing. No one in my family does much visiting of graves, and burials are apparently not deemed necessary.
