  • The Age of Feelings

    By Dennis Prager

    November 28, 2012 | 10:52 am

    In the Pacific Coast waters off the Northern California city of Eureka on Nov. 10, a mother, a father and their teenage son all died.

    It was not a boating accident or a shark attack. 

    They died because at least one of them tried to save the family dog, which had been carried...

  • Elegy for a Dream

    By Gina Nahai

    September 8, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I came to America 30 years ago last month. I arrived in Los Angeles the night Elvis died. I was 16 years old, fresh out of a Swiss boarding school, about to start my first year of college. This was two years before the Islamic Revolution, yet I had left Iran willingly and without...
  • B’nai Mitzvah: It’s OK! Go ahead and cry

    By Wendy Jaffe

    I don't remember much about my own bat mitzvah many years ago, but I do remember this: My father cried as he turned to speak to me after the conclusion of the Torah reading.

    I can't remember a single word that he said, not a one, but I do remember his wet eyes and the sound his...

    Devyani Saltzman sat frozen over her math homework as her parents screamed at each other one evening at the Cannes Film Festival in 1992. Her mother, the Indian-born filmmaker Deepa Mehta, had come to Cannes to premiere her first feature, "Sam & Me," about the unlikely relationship...

  • The Candy Man Can

    By Teresa Strasser

    August 24, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    If you've ever tried to split a Big Hunk candy bar -- the kind made out of brittle white nougat and peanuts -- then you understand a typical breakup. It's usually not neat, like a Kit Kat, two for you, two for me, let's go our separate ways and we'll run into each other in three...

  • Sacrifices Address Emotion of Guilt

    By Rabbi Steven Weil

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The theme of Parshat Tzav is korbanot, the animal sacrifices brought in the Tabernacle and, later, in the Temple.

    The Rambam, in his "Guide to the Perplexed," writes, "The purpose of sacrifices being incorporated into the Divine service of the Jewish people was to accommodate the...

  • Will She Marry Him?

    By Seth Menachem

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In my last Singles column, "Change of Heart," I left off with one important question for my girlfriend, Carrie: "Will you marry me?"

    Did she say yes?

    Well, let me back up a bit.

    A few days before the column came out, I drove over to Carrie's parents to ask for their blessing. Carol...

  • Melancholy and an Intimate Sadness

    By Keren Engelberg

    July 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Piero Cividalli's paintings call to mind decayed Italian frescos and prehistoric art. But these nods to the past are woven through Cividalli's artistic vision, emerging as finished pieces both intelligent and original.

    A muted palette washes faces into their backgrounds as they stare...

  • Chocolates and Knaidlach and Kugel, Oh My!

    By Julie G Fax

    April 13, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Real whipped butter. There's only one time of year you'll find it in my refrigerator -- Pesach.

    To me, sitting down Pesach morning with a cup of coffee, a box of matzah, a tub of sweet butter and a few different flavors of jelly is as essential to the holiday as the "Mah Nishtanah."...
