  • Insomnia, Nightmares & the Value of Sleep

    By Ilana Angel

    October 27, 2014 | 7:59 am

    I am not a great sleeper. Never have been. I average about 5 hours a night and they are not always a good solid 5 hours. I don’t recall exactly when it was that I started functioning on so little sleep, but I am certain it has been too long. I like sleep and actually like being in...

  • Dumping George Clooney for Daniel Craig

    By Ilana Angel

    November 1, 2012 | 3:47 pm

    I dream a lot about George Clooney.  It’s not always the actual Clooney in my dreams, but most of the men I dream about have Clooney’s face. Any man who appears in my dreams, bus driver, teacher, fisherman, or pilot, looks like George Clooney.  I take comfort in knowing I will meet...

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    April 26, 2012 | 11:32 pm

    Today we are honored to present an article from G Kamana from his Hilo office. After knowing this “Healer in the Streets” for many years, I am certain you will be inspired by his literal and figurative journeys.

    I’ve decided to retire early. At the ripe age of 34, with only 2...

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    February 16, 2012 | 2:50 pm

    On the phone from his home in Brooklyn, Brian Selznick, author of illustrated novel “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” sounds more like your witty Jewish cousin from New York than the creator of a story involving 1931 Paris, automatons and the magical work of the pioneering filmmaker...

  • Boxing, Addiction, Ryan O’Neil, Gorgeous Men & a Great Singles Night

    By Ilana Angel

    September 16, 2011 | 1:37 pm

    Last night I went to the “Knocking out Addiction” boxing event that was held on the roof of the Peterson Automotive Museum here in LA.  It was a fundraising event for Beit T’Shuvah, which is both a residential treatment center for addiction, as well as a temple.  I volunteer...

    An Iranian Jewish girl was going through chemotherapy treatment -- which tends to suppress your appetite -- but one day, she got this craving for a lamb stew with carrots. Within an hour, someone was headed to the nearest Persian restaurant to get the dish and bring it to the girl....

  • Happy birthday to me

    By Marty Kaplan

    August 21, 2008 | 12:07 am

    Not long ago, a guy I know, a good guy who to all outward appearances seems happy and successful, replied to a birthday e-mail I sent him at work -- "go home and blow out some candles" -- with this:

    "I'm 40-f---ing-8, give me a break. They tell me that's close to 50, but I refuse...

  • Charity fulfills dreams of young Israeli cancer patients

    By Dikla Kadosh

    December 6, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    The small group inched forward through the dark walkway, clinging to one another. They giggled as they glanced nervously around at the bloody limbs strewn on the floor and thick cobwebs covering the walls. A ghastly creature lunged at them from a dark corner, and the terrified bunch...

  • A Super ‘Schmooze’ Move

    May 25, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The unforgettable superheroes of comic strips became the stuff of endless Hollywood big-budget sequels. But more often than not, they began in the fevered imaginations of struggling young Jewish guys, whose wildest dreams could be hemmed in only by four panels and black ink.

    "In June...

  • Perfectly Imperfect

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    May 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Jewish kids all get A's. It's a fact. They're all well above average. Jewish kids always star in the show, play first violin in the orchestra, win the debate championship. This week the last of the college acceptance letters went out. They all got into Stanford, Berkeley and Brown....

  • Dousing Dreams

    By Rabbi Dov Fischer

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Your child comes home and says she wants to be a doctor someday. Your spouse or serious beau tells you he or she dreams of being something greater. And you douse the dream with a comment: "You aren't smart enough," "You don't have the skills needed to do that" or "No one will take...

    By Susan Josephs

    October 6, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Michael Schlitt sees a definite connection between his type of Jewishness and his reasons for directing a Neil Simon play in India. Being drawn to India and all things Eastern is Jewish, he says. And so is asking a million questions about everything.

    "Basically, my work is very...

  • Time to Go Home

    By Nathan D. Wirtschafter

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    When my wife and I woke up on the day we made aliyah, we talked and decided that we felt good. Natural. Normal. A little excited. A bit eager. Somewhat tired from some late-night, last-minute packing. Above all, we were ready. It was time to go.

    The family dressed in T-shirts that...

    Do you remember your dreams? In both last week's and this week's parshot, dreams play a big part in the story. First, Joseph dreams that the sun, the moon and 11 stars are bowing down to him. His 11 brothers get very angry with him. They say, "Is that what you think? That we are...

    "As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He was lying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little, he could see his dome-like brown belly divided into stiff arched...
