  • Daughter finds the write words from dad

    November 25, 2014 | 12:04 pm

    My father rarely wrote anything down. Take birthday cards, for example: While my mother would embellish the printed message with sweet, loving passages and hand-drawn hearts, my father’s heavy script only appeared at the bottom, where he signed his name. It seemed strange for a man...

    These are the e-mails of Marvin Hankin, father of two IDF soldiers, Aviel and Gilad, currently stationed in Gaza. Aviel, age 27, is a medical officer for his unit; in August, he will finish the first year of his five-year commitment. Gilad, 22, was drafted into the tank corps at...

  • Dad Behavior

    By Elliot Steingart

    March 25, 2013 | 1:39 pm

    With each passing day my hair gets grayer and my jokes, cornier. I accept this transformation as an inevitable fact of life. I'm slowly turning into my father. Spending time with my dad is a study in who I will become.

    I waited for my dad to come out of the bathroom at a local...

    I spent the weekend in San Francisco with the Englishman and our kids.  It was his birthday, and with his oldest daughter there attending university, we headed up so we could celebrate together. Our kids all get along in a marvelous way and I am truly blessed because I love his...

  • Visiting My Father

    By Ilana Angel

    August 15, 2012 | 10:15 am

    Today I went to visit my Dad.  It was very emotional and painful.  I miss him every single day and my heart is broken that he is gone.  I see him in my son, and in myself, but the ache of his passing has gotten deeper with time.  With each accomplishment of my child, each tear of my...

  • Coming Home For a Good Cry

    By Ilana Angel

    August 14, 2012 | 7:50 am

    Yesterday I drove with my son from Toronto to Montreal.  We blasted RUSH and Justin Bieber and I will tell you that both artists sound just a little better in Canada.  We zoomed along the 401 and life was grand.  I cried for the first hour after we left Toronto having left my...

    My son has gone back east with his best friend for three weeks.  It is the third year he has made the trip and he truly loves it.  They hang out at the lake, play tennis, go hiking, see movies, and have a classic all American summer experience.  Today marks 18 days until I see him.

  • Chicks and Cars

    By Ilana Angel

    July 12, 2012 | 7:01 pm

    I wish I was the type of chick that knew about cars.  I cannot change a tire, or my oil, and I describe things in my car as doohickeys and thingamajigs.  The only thing I am able to do in terms of my car, besides drive it, is gas it up. By drive it of course I mean I am a New York...

  • Love, Loss & Sex at 100

    By Ilana Angel

    February 14, 2012 | 12:17 am

    Yesterday marked the 9th anniversary of the passing of my dad. I spent a lot of time crying, and that I managed to make it through the day was a miracle because there were moments when I simply could not breathe.  I loved my father, miss him everyday, and feel the loss deeply.

    January 3, 2012 | 12:56 pm

    Yesterday was the last day of my children’s freedom, and incidentally the last day of my imprisonment.  As I counted down the dwindling hours of winter break, I was also counting down the hours till my head was going to stop throbbing and my voice would sound human again (oppose to a...

  • A Treasure Becomes a Work of Art

    By Ilana Angel

    January 2, 2012 | 1:04 am

    This February will mark 10 years since my father passed and I can hardly believe it.  I loved my father very much and losing him was the greatest sorrow my heart has ever known.  He was only 63 years old when he died.  My father had cancer and I went to see him as often as I could. ...

    Weiner, who is Jewish, in June acknowledged inappropriate Internet relationships with at least six women. The pregnancy of Abedin, a Saudi-born Muslim, became public during the scandal.

  • Mothers, Fathers, Memories & Bar Mitzvahs

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 10:06 pm

    When my doctor told me I was pregnant, I fainted.  I was 29 years old and my lifelong dream was to be a mother, so when it was confirmed, after years of trying, it was too much joy to handle I simply fainted.  It was a wonderful day and the love I felt for my child at that exact...

  • The Madoff Family Continues Their Deception

    By Ilana Angel

    November 4, 2011 | 8:36 am

    I certainly feel sorry for Ruth Madoff that she lost her son Mark, but with that said, I think his blood is all over her hands.  As I sat watching her, and her other son Andrew on 60 Minutes, I found myself getting angry.  I did not believe what either one of them said.  Something is...

  • Controlling who shall live and who shall die … and when

    By Ellie Kahn

    October 25, 2011 | 7:15 pm

    My 93-year-old father and I have little left to say to each other.

    He sleeps while I sit by his side. Every so often, Dad wakes up, and looks with some confusion around his small room, at the hospital bed, the TV and the whiteboard where someone has printed in large letters:...

  • Supermarket Memories…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 9, 2011 | 3:20 pm

    Every time I’m at the Supermarket, I start to remember my very first trip to one just like it.  When you come to America from the former Soviet Union and enter ANY grocery store, you are bound to go into shock.  As I’ve written before, the shelves of U.S.S.R.’s grocery stores...

  • Voicemail and My Father’s Outgoing Message…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 2, 2011 | 2:59 pm

    The other day a friend of mine told me that I am the only person she knows that still owns an answering machine…  Apparently, everyone else in the world has long done away with those and only using electronic voice-mail now.  I’m a bit slow with technology, I admit.  However, I...

  • Date Night Phenomenon?

    By Julia Bendis

    April 13, 2011 | 6:02 pm

    I had to write about this phenomenon called ‘Date Night’.  Every couple I know has date nights where they spend an evening away from home, kids, pets, etc, while throwing money away doing it…  Only in America do people label every activity including a simple night out with their...

  • Is Matchmaking a Mitzvah and how many are supposed to accomplish in our lifetime?

    By Julia Bendis

    February 28, 2011 | 10:17 am

    Attending a wedding the other week of a couple that I introduced, made me think of the many Mitzvot that we are supposed to perform in our lifetime.  Having been somewhat of a Matchmaker since I was in high school, I had never really thought about it as a Mitzvah, or a good deed. ...

  • Decals on my car - don’t want any!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 10, 2011 | 11:45 am

    Does having a decal of children, dogs and your entire family on your car make you a better Mom?  And more importantly, does NOT having one make me a bad Mom?

    I was pondering that question as I sat in traffic on the 405 freeway the other day.  As usual, I was stuck behind a Minivan...

  • Of Time, and a Father’s First Century

    February 2, 2011 | 2:46 pm

    My father understands unwinnable conflicts. He has been fighting a personal war against time since 1911.  “Where does the time go?” he is likely even now to be wondering out loud to a stack of magazines and mail he has yet to get to, but will.

    He’s not one for birthdays, his own at...

  • Rahm Emanuel is a fighting policy wonk with a Jewish soul [VIDEO]

    By Ron Kampeas

    November 13, 2008 | 1:03 am

    Political insight, killer in a fight, Yiddishkayt -- it's an inseparable package when it comes to Rahm Emanuel, say those who know President-elect Barack Obama's pick to be the next White House chief of staff.

    Since his days as a fundraiser and then a "political adviser" -- read:...

  • The Nimoys: A father and son, with space between them

    September 24, 2008 | 10:26 pm

    When Adam Nimoy was growing up, he felt alienated from his famous father.

    Leonard Nimoy's work as the Vulcan Mr. Spock on "Star Trek" and his numerous other film and TV projects on both sides of the camera provided a comfortable West Coast lifestyle for his baby boom family.

    By Susan Freudenheim

    June 12, 2008 | 2:38 pm

    My father, Milt Freudenheim, retired a couple of weeks ago from a job that he couldn't let go of. Despite the fact that he is 81, he said he still plans to go on working for as long as he's able.

    I bring this up not only because it's Father's Day this weekend, and I feel that anyone...

  • The figurative father

    June 12, 2008 | 2:33 pm

    Every year, as the third Sunday in June approaches, it happens: along with the ads for neckties and iPods come the endless conversations on single-mom blogs and parenting sites about what to do on Father's Day with kids like mine who don't have fathers. One mom wanted to honor her...

    "The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit: My Family's Exodus from Old Cairo to the New World," by Lucette Lagnado (Ecco, $25.95).
    When Leon Lagnado would walk at his brisk pace through the streets of Cairo in the 1940s, heads would turn: He was said to resemble Cary Grant. The suave,...
