  • The danger of just talking

    October 1, 2014 | 11:35 am

    It’s out of my mouth before I know I’ve said it. Only right afterward do I recognize the feeling of giving in to the urge to say something I shouldn’t, something that is mean, judgmental or just not mine to tell. When I hear my husband or a friend repeating what I shouldn’t have...

  • Jonathan Jaxson Talks LeAnn Rimes & More

    By Ilana Angel

    July 2, 2013 | 2:10 pm

    To tell you the truth, I had no idea who Jonathan Jaxson was until people started to write that I should interview him.  I watch a lot of reality TV, and like to think I’m up to date on pop culture, but I am not much of a gossip person, and don’t read gossip magazines or tabloids....

  • Gossiping—What you can gain if you refrain

    September 14, 2011 | 6:08 pm

    “What you don’t see with your eyes, don’t witness with your mouth.”  -Jewish Proverb

    Too often, I realize that people preface their sentences with “I heard” or “they say.” Intrigued by the personal details and juicy information that is likely to follow, most of us allow...

    1. Why Oh why do people insist on asking how you are doing, when they don’t plan on listening to the answer?  Just say “Hello” and keep walking!  But don’t ask people how they are, and then interrupt them mid-sentence to tell them how late you are and need to run!

    2. Why is it that...

  • To tell the truth

    By Rabbi Dov Fischer

    April 10, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    The traditional English translation for the disease tzora'at that is eponymous with this week's Torah portion, Metzora, is "leprosy."

    However, as our commentators explain, biblical leprosy was something very different from the bacterial leprosy of modern times that is attributed to...

  • I’ve Got a Secret

    I thought I had struck social gossip gold when my friend Paula let slip a delicious bit of intelligence straight into my eager ears. Paula and I were participating in a real-time, interactive social dialogue -- meaning, we were on the phone -- trying to schedule a lunch date. This...

    You know that harmless-looking body part inside your mouth? The tongue? It sure looks nice enough, but it gets a lot of Israelites into trouble in this week's parsha. Do you remember getting a present and then complaining it wasn't enough? Not the right video game; not the kind of...

  • Lifestyles of the Rich and Miserable

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    June 12, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Everything in Creation has a purpose, teaches the Midrash. But when someone gave us a gift subscription to People Weekly magazine, I was left to wonder if I had found the first truly purposeless thing in God's universe.

    You know People, the epitome of "lite" culture, with its short,...
