  • Everyone is Suddenly Irish on March 17th!

    By Julia Bendis

    March 18, 2011 | 11:33 am

    Why does everyone become Irish on St. Patrick’s day?  Even the Jews.  When has it become a good thing for Jews to start drinking?  Have you ever seen Jewish people drink?  No, that’s because most of us can’t hold down our liquor, and its not pretty.

    I am definitely the “drinker” in...

  • Valentine’s Day Peep Show!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 14, 2011 | 6:14 pm

    I really don’t like Valentine’s Day!  I hate everything about it, the stupid, corny Hallmark cards, the over-priced flowers, the overcrowded restaurants, the need to out-do each other with pricey gifts, etc…  I am not saying that we shouldn’t show our love for the people in our...

  • 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...

  • What makes a ‘real’ Jew?

    By Rebecca Suchov

    July 5, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    After being alive for 16 years, I would think it would be easy to classify myself into a certain category, and that by now I would know what, who and why I am what I am. But as I grow older, it has become more complicated for me to label myself -- secular, religious, Jewish American...
  • Perky Obit Girl

    By Shoshana Lewin-Fischer

    June 29, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    My love of journalism started in high school, when I confronted the cafeteria manager at my public -- predominantly Jewish -- high school about why there was no matzah available during Passover. I've always loved keeping people informed, so journalism seemed like a natural career...

  • Keeping My Hair Under Wraps

    By Judy Gruen

    February 17, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Recently, I found myself spellbound while watching "Girl With a Pearl Earring." This film, based on the excellent Tracy Chevalier novel, is a fictional account of the history behind Vermeer's famous painting of the same name.

    The novel revolves around a servant girl, Grete, who...

  • The Forbidden Food

    By Dan Jacobs

    August 26, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I was casually walking through the meat aisle at the local supermarket yesterday morning looking for kosher chicken when I saw her holding a package of frozen shrimp.

    Her hair was long and sun-bleached blonde, and her eyes were blue like the sky. I knew she wasn't Jewish. My heart...

  • Like a Jew in a Bagel Store

    By Carin Davis

    May 27, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I'm no longer a virgin. To Israel, that is. This single babe just returned from her maiden voyage to the land of milk and honey. And all I can say is -- there were a lot of honeys. Jewish men everywhere.

    In the restaurants, on the streets, in the shops -- I didn't know where to...

  • Pages Reveal a Whole New Esther

    By Gaby Wenig

    March 4, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    As far as narrative goes, Megillat Esther is one of the most exciting parts of the Tanach. It is rich in religious significance and considered a seminal text on the miracle of Jewish survival, the story of Esther, the orphan girl who is chosen in a nationwide beauty contest to become...

  • The Oldest Diary

    By Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben

    October 5, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    There is something otherworldly about the experience of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. It is perhaps the preeminent spiritual-cultural paradox in all of Jewish life. When girls and boys focus so intensely on this personal lifecycle event, each possesses a transcendent, timeless and eternal...
  • Raising Boys

    By Jane Ulman

    June 22, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    This past year, Toys R Us was excoriated for proposing and, in some instances, constructing separate "Boys World" and "Girls World" sections. But public outrage quickly forced the 707-store retailer to abandon this gender-based marketing concept, which it euphemistically referred to...

  • To the Graduates

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 15, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    I can't remember a word spoken by Ira Goldstein, the Plainview (NY) High School valedictorian, Class of 1965, but I'm sure his graduation address was brilliant. Ira, who apparently was in the Philosophy Club with me for three now-forgotten years, was the most brilliant boy in a class...

  • Chaya’s Dance

    By Beverly Gray

    April 8, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Six years ago, Carol Solomon attended Yom Kippur services in Copenhagen. Flipping through the back of the English language prayerbook, she came upon a poem, translated from Hebrew, called "The Letter of the Ninety-Three Maidens." Based on an actual letter that was found after the...
  • Dear Deborah

    Detail from the cover of "Boy MeetsGirl," a romance comic book, 1947

    Suffocating Sweetheart

    Dear Deborah,

    I am engaged to a wonderful man whose "littleproblem" has become very, very big during the course of our two-yearcourtship and has grown acute during our engagement. He was always...

  • Cleared of Charges?

    By Tom Tugend

    September 11, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Charges against a Brooklyn Chassidic rabbi of groping a 15-year-old girl during a transpacific flight were part of an extortion plot and will be dismissed by federal prosecutors.

    So states prominent Washington attorney Nathan Lewin, who's representing Rabbi Israel Grunwald, leader of...
