  • It’s All About You

    By J.D. Smith

    July 31, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    It should be pointed out that once upon a time I wrote a little book titled "Life Sentence." It is the definitive treatise on the state of human relations between men and women, vis-à-vis engagement and marriage from the male perspective. Some people think it was anti-marriage,...

  • B’nai Mitzvah Bond With Israel

    By Keren Engelberg

    June 12, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    6 Million Remembered Nun's the Word on Mother's Day

    It's not every day or even every year that a Jewish organization honors a Catholic nun -- but naming her Community Mother of the Year seems odd for a Jewish organization. This year, the Jewish Home for the Aging (JHA) is honoring...

    "Murderous explosion at Sbarros"

    "Three dead in fatal drive-by shooting"



    For me, like for most American Jews, reading the morning newspaper is an event that fills me with dread. Over the last two

  • Miracle of Miracles!

    By Abby Gilad

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Have you ever experienced a miracle? What's a miracle anyway? Is it something that only God can do? The rabbis say that it was the Jews who actually created the miracle of Chanukah. They fought to keep Judaism alive when it was in danger of being extinguished. Here, today, in...

  • One Night for Israel

    By Mike Levy

    November 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Maybe only seven nights of gifts would be enough for your family? The Israel Emergency Solidarity Fund (IESF) hopes so -- they'd like you to save the eighth night for an Israeli family in need. It is easier than ever to bring a little Chanukah light into the holiday for Israel...

  • I Wish It Were More

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    December 21, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    I am a lousy gift-giver. I'm bad enough on birthdays, when gift-giving makes me so nervous that my gifts never arrive on time. But I'm absolutely awful in December, when I feel so pressured by Chanukah expectations that I buy gift after gift for three of the people on my list,...

    By Rita Berman Frischer

    March 25, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    For promoters and lovers of Jewish books, now is the season of our deep content. Not all the following books are specifically about Passover and not all of them bear a 1999 publication date, but all of them are worth considering, whether to keep or to give as gifts when attending...
  • Something for Everyone

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    December 10, 1998 | 7:00 pm

    Some years ago, the American Booksellers Association's holiday advertising theme was the phrase: "Give a gift of love; Give a book." Jewish Book Month, scheduled in November, anticipated the gift-giving season. This year, as always, a fresh crop of children's books appeared for the...
