    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 5:19 pm

    I have been divorced for 16 years.  I left my husband when my son was only a few months old and while it was very difficult, staying would have been harder.  I knew I needed to leave and if I hung on for my son he would not have been in a happy place.  In the end the marriage would...

  • Am I One Cup of Tea Away from Voting for Sarah Palin?

    By Ilana Angel

    September 21, 2011 | 10:59 pm

    When I met Sarah Palin in March of last year, I wrote about it, and was immediately admired by some, and shunned by others.  Members of the Republican Party praised me for being kind, and some of my liberal friends told me I was talking to the devil and needed to never speak of her...

    I love Manny Pacquiao.  Love him.  While not a long time fan of the sport of boxing, I love to watch Manny in the ring.  He is magical.  Not only as an athlete, but also as a human being.  I tend to be attracted to Jewish men who are older and taller than me, but when it comes to...

    What’s a mother of boys to do during the 2-week Winter break?  After days of wrestling, fighting, video game playing, and countless hours of television, I decided to take my boys to “Color Me Mine” for some ceramic painting.  I’ve done it before myself, but my boys never showed...

    In this week's portion, Lech Lecha, we learn about a fight between the shepherds of Abraham and his nephew, Lot. There was plenty of space for everyone, but they weren't getting along so it seemed too crowded. Our rabbis teach us that when two people get along, they can...

    Gouging out eyeballs and hitting people with chairs are just some of the actions taught by Wade Allen. For Allen, the director of Krav Maga Worldwide's Hollywood division, it's all in the name of self-defense.
