  • Dating 101: Relationship Advice BBQ Style

    By Ilana Angel

    October 20, 2013 | 4:36 pm

    I went to a BBQ on Saturday that was unlike any BBQ I have ever been to. I ventured out of the valley, which I rarely do, and headed for the marina where I was in for an interesting afternoon. It was an eclectic group of people and I was fascinated.  By fascinated of course I mean...

  • Summer Snippets Part 1

    By Elliot Steingart

    July 24, 2013 | 9:38 am

    The summer of 2013 is a collection of meaningful memories, memories of traveling to Pittsburgh, and the Black Hills of South Dakota for friends' weddings, and such.

    Pittsburgh is home, and will remain home until no one volunteers to scoop me from the airport. Zach pulls up in his...

    With a little help from his friends — and “Friends” — Danny Maseng is working to reinvent Temple Israel of Hollywood’s (TIOH) annual gala.

    Sure, the wine, dinner and honorees will be at the Hollywood Boulevard synagogue on the evening of April 27. But so will a number of...

    Yesterday I flew to New York City.  By flew to New York City of course I mean I ended up in a travel nightmare.  I was taking a client’s child to the east coast to go to camp for 2 weeks.  The plan was to fly her in, drop her to her best girlfriend, have dinner with my friends in...

  • Friends or foes?

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    June 8, 2012 | 2:27 pm

    At first glance, this is a fairytale story coming true- an Israeli singer shining abroad. This story could have had a happy ending as well if it weren’t for politics raising its ugly head yet again.

    A couple months back I wrote about a Facebook campaign which changed my entire...

  • April fools Facebook

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    May 25, 2012 | 12:18 pm

    On March 31st, I had an idea, which I found brilliant at the time, for an April fool’s day prank: on midnight, I changed my birthday on Facebook to April 1st, and quietly laughed to myself.

    I went to sleep, waiting for the morning to read what those who are my friends on Facebook,...

  • Friends with Baby Boomers

    By Elliot Steingart

    April 25, 2012 | 12:39 pm

    I’ve reached the age when I can relate to my parents’ friends as much as my own friends.

    My parents are still friends with the same crew they rolled with in Pittsburgh, and now a slew of South Africans in San Diego where they’ve lived the last ten years. My parents are pick-up...

  • Meet the Friends

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 13, 2012 | 5:12 pm

    When your boyfriend meets your friends for the first time, it can be almost as nerve-wracking as meeting the parents.  Although my boyfriend of a year knows and has built relationships with all my friends in LA, I have a lot of friends in other places.  This past weekend we went to...

  • Lunch with the Enemy

    By Ilana Angel

    January 10, 2012 | 11:43 pm

    I had lunch today with a new friend.  It’s rather interesting that we are friends actually because before I even met her, I was certain I would not like her.  She is young, beautiful, talented, Jewish, and while almost 20 years younger than me, in the same dating pool.  Of course I...

  • My First Thai Massage Experience

    By Ilana Angel

    October 23, 2011 | 1:28 pm

    It has been a great weekend in Los Angeles.  It’s sunny and warm with the smell of fall in the air.  It’s as if we are almost having a season, which for LA is unusual.  As my family prepares for snow in Canada, I am counting my blessings and was thrilled to go to Starbucks this...

  • 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...

  • NYC Housewives Implode & No Comment from Survivors or Bethenny

    By Ilana Angel

    September 18, 2011 | 11:22 am

    We’ve been waiting for Bravo to listen to our pleas about the ladies of NYC.  It’s been painful to watch.  It was once a fun romp for an hour a week, but has became a crap fest of screaming, fighting, and no fun.  Well, change is coming and change is good.  Hopefully.

    I’m not...

  • My Cynical & Jaded Online Dating Butt Just Got Kicked by a Kid

    By Ilana Angel

    August 31, 2011 | 12:06 pm

    I wrote a while back about a man named Dave who wrote me 4 times on an online dating site with the same message.  It was so sad that it became funny, and after I wrote back to a couple of his emails telling him I appreciated the interest but did not feel we were a match, I gave up...

  • Meeting the Locals: Connecting on the Road and at Home (video)

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    June 26, 2011 | 11:57 am

    One of the most unexpected surprises of budget travel has been the connection with people. One of my favorite parts of our trips happens not only when we meet locals along the way, but also other travelers back home afterward.

    Traveling the “five-star” way (having lived on board a...

  • Amy Chua a.k.a The Tiger Mother Got It Right!

    By Julia Bendis

    May 3, 2011 | 11:28 am

    When I first heard about Amy Chua, the self-professed Chinese Tiger Mother, I didn’t understand what all the hype, the drama and the hatred was about.  After reading more about her and her parenting memoir “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”, I couldn’t help but like her even more!

  • A story of unconditional friendship

    January 27, 2011 | 2:48 pm

    I met Robin on Passover in 2000. We were both crossing a busy street in Beverly Hills carrying covered dishes, my 6-year-old was holding on to the edge of my skirt, and I asked if she was going to the same seder we were. It was my first Passover in Los Angeles, and now I realize it...

  • Friend or Flirt?

    January 27, 2011 | 2:43 pm

    After the 1989 blockbuster movie “When Harry Met Sally…” many were left questioning whether truly platonic relationships are possible. But friendships between men and women really do exist and, if anything, are becoming increasingly common.

    Over the past two decades, the...

  • Facebook Shmacebook!

    By Julia Bendis

    January 18, 2011 | 1:09 pm

    People like me should Not be on Facebook!  When you go to Facebook site to sign up, there should be a giant disclaimer that says: “For tough skin people only!  People that are overly sensitive, wear their heart and feelings on their sleeves, and drama queens should NOT sign up!”...

  • Dear Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin: I apologize for the Jewish vote for Obama

    By Dean Rotbart

    November 12, 2008 | 11:10 pm

    This is my public apology to John McCain, Sarah Palin, Republican voters, Christian evangelicals, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Mike Gallagher and everyone else in the non-Jewish universe who stands four-square behind the State of Israel.

    While you have written, spoken and, yes, even...

    By Tom Tugend

    September 25, 2008 | 3:11 am

    "What does it mean to be free and why is freedom so important?" was Karlo Silbiger's first question to some 20 kids ranging from 3 years to early teens.

    The youth and their parents were meeting on a recent Sunday morning to check out the offerings of Adat Chaverim (Community of...

    September 15, 2008 | 12:59 am

    PARIS (JTA) - Jews and Christians should get to know each other better, Pope Benedict XVI said at a meeting with French Jewish leaders.

  • A request from the Jewlyweds

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    September 8, 2008 | 2:04 pm

    Dear Friends and Family,

    Adam and I want to thank you for the countless politically themed e-mail forwards, Web links, Facebook group invites and YouTube clips that you’ve sent our way over the last few months.

    We feel blessed to be surrounded by such a large group of extremely...

  • Eva’s prayer

    By David Suissa

    June 19, 2008 | 2:33 pm

    It's not often you see someone pray to God with all their might for something to happen, and then, when God doesn't make it happen, thank Him profusely and even celebrate.

    My friend Eva Brown prayed to God with all her might.

    She was praying the day she called me a few months ago...

  • Jacob’s Ladders

    By Savid Suissa

    March 8, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Every neighborhood has its gathering places.

    In my neighborhood, you'll find one if you head west on Pico Boulevard from Robertson Boulevard, past the ethnic aromas of the "center" hood and into the kosher Ice Blended Mochas of the "west" hood, where, right next to an Office Depot,...

  • Friendship—and pain

    By Jeff Bernhardt

    February 1, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I don't date much. I have all the usual excuses - too busy, not into "the scene," but really, I'm just a lazy dater. I'm like the fisherman who waits for the fish to jump into his bucket. I don't go to bars or join groups, but if someone comes my way, I happily pursue.

    That's what...

  • D-A-T-E is just a four-letter word

    By Lori Gottlieb

    January 18, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I'm not sure why this never made any of the 2006 year-end lists, but it seems that -- at least for singles -- the most confusing question of the year wasn't "How do you pronounce 'al-Zarqawi?'" but the more mundane "How was your date?" To be specific, the confusing part would always...
  • I challenged karma, but did the karma win?

    By Amy Klein

    December 21, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Contrary to what the polls say, California must be the most religious state in the union. Now that Pluto's gone, it should be classified as its own planet.

    I remember when I first realized this. I'd been living here for less than a year, and I was in a car with three other women.

    All About Atidim

    "As Henry VIII told each of his six wives, 'I won't keep you long'," promised Dan Gillerman, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, as he addressed some 300 guests at the Skirball Cultural Center.

  • The so-called ‘perfect date’

    By Amy Klein

    November 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The date was going really well. The conversation was flowing. We were practically finishing each other's sentences.

    "Have you ever been to Azumi Sushi?" I asked.

    He smiled, secretly, a half smile.

    "What is it?" I asked him.

    "I was just about to say that," he replied.

    Not that...
