  • Dating 101: Drama, Drama, Drama

    By Ilana Angel

    June 21, 2016 | 2:18 pm

    Every time I think I cannot possibly be surprised by the world of dating, something happens to make me shake my head, throw my hands in the air, and laugh. By shake my head, of course I mean cry. By throw my hands in the air, of course I mean cry. By laugh, of course I mean cry....

    January 19, 2016 | 2:17 pm

    Years of public complaints about the slow-moving Israeli bureaucracy seem to have finally reached someone in charge — maybe they were being sent to the wrong fax number.

    On Sunday, Israel’s Cabinet passed a measure that will require all government ministries to allow documents to...

  • Seven Days Without Email

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    November 3, 2015 | 2:20 pm

    As I write this, it has been just over seven days since my personal email account stopped working. My email account at work is still running, so I can’t say I’ve gone a whole week without any email at all. But I do a good job of keeping my personal and work email separate from each...

  • Peace and protection

    By Rabbi Mordecai Finley

    November 29, 2012 | 1:01 pm

    I have tried to figure out why Rabbi Sharon Brous’ thoughts left me empty when I read them. As Rabbi Daniel Gordis has written, there is nothing objectionable in them. In fact, as I read her e-mail word-for-word many times, I found that I agreed with her completely regarding...

  • Rabbi Sharon Brous vs. Rabbi Daniel Gordis: Betrayal or compassion?

    By Julie Gruenbaum Fax

    November 29, 2012 | 12:36 pm

    When Rabbi Sharon Brous first read an essay by Rabbi Daniel Gordis, a colleague and former teacher, accusing her of betraying Israel, she was shocked and angry, she said. Nevertheless, her initial instinct was to refrain from feeding the publicity machine.

    Gordis’ article, posted...

  • All the families of the Earth

    November 29, 2012 | 12:35 pm

    A living Judaism demands an exquisite balance between inside and outside, concern for our own and concern for the other, particularism and universalism. From era to era and generation to generation, the balance point shifts. But as long as Jewish life holds fast to both, it...

  • Heartache: an email from Rabbi Sharon Brous

    November 29, 2012 | 11:35 am

    It has been a devastating couple of days in Israel and Gaza. 

    I believe that the Israeli people, who have for years endured a barrage of rocket attacks targeting innocents and designed to create terror, instability and havoc, have the right and the obligation to defend...

  • 10 things I love and understand

    By Julia Bendis

    February 25, 2011 | 1:42 pm

    1. Don’t you love those people that use ALL CAPS when typing?  What is the thought there?  That unless you use all capital letters nobody will read your email, or that its a lot more important that other people’s emails?  And furthermore the same people that use all caps, don’t know...

    December 20, 2010 | 2:26 pm

    The other day, I started to wonder if anyone else has the same obsessive compulsive behavior when it comes to Facebook, cell phones, Blackberry’s, Blueberry’s, ipods, iphones, ipads and God-knows what else…

    For a long time, I resisted getting a more ‘appropriate’ cell...

  • Jews looked past worries to embrace Obama

    By Ron Kampeas

    November 6, 2008 | 6:08 pm

    For some Jewish voters, the strangeness of Barack Obama was like a recurring dream: unsettling and then settling in, and then, suddenly, revelatory.

    Ari Wallach described breaking through to elderly Jews in Florida who had resisted voting for the son of the man from Kenya, the tall...

  • Dating today is a menage a tech

    July 24, 2008 | 12:44 am

    Dating used to be so simple and straightforward. And yes, romantic! You'd be at a party and spot someone across the room. Your eyes would meet. You'd

    By The Web Guy

    January 15, 2008 | 9:33 pm

    You’ve heard the rumors, seen the email, etc.  Obama is really a Muslim, he went to a madrassa, his church is racist, etc.

    Some prominent American Jewish leaders strongly disagree.

    Jewish organizational leaders defended Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Monday from a...

    October 6, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Back when I was working at a newspaper in New York, my editors and I tried to come up with a teen-sounding headline for a story on voting for our new teen section.

    "How about 'Gettin' Out the Vote'?" my editor offered.

    As if dropping a "g" off the end of the word is all one needs to...

    Share the Fun

    Have you been having fun this summer?

    Our rabbis say that we should give up to 10 percent of what we own to tzedakah (charity) every year.

    What percentage of your fun can you give to another person?

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    September 16, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The writers of the machzor were pretty comprehensive in listing the multitude of sins we commit as a community over the course of the year. Some of them -- such as foul speech, unscrupulous business affairs, sexual immorality and fraud -- are remarkably relevant today. But the...

    While obsessing over an ex-girlfriend in 1997, Jed Weintrob, then an Orion vice president of interactive media, turned to the Internet for distraction. "I got hooked peering into the lives of strangers," said Weintrob, a self-described Jewish "techno geek." "It was both calming and...

    I'm a sucker for a slugger in a baseball hat. So I got caught looking at Alex, the hottie at my weekly Sunday softball game. He works for a nonprofit, volunteers at a local hospital and drinks at St. Nicks. And he has the greatest laugh.

    Wise to the rules of both softball and dating,...

    December 14, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    There is no Editor of cyberspace, and that's too bad. The latest e-mail craze to spread like the Melissa virus through the cc: box of various e-mails is the report of a man named Joseph Farah.

  • Internet Activism: Power, No Accountability

    By James D

    April 20, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    By now it's a cliché: the Internet, a medium that gives anybody with a computer access to a worldwide audience, is changing the way we share information. And, because information is power, it also changes the way we do politics.

    The Internet is democracy with a vengeance, with...
