  • Three Jews visit Scandinavia; an adventure in anti-Semitism

    August 11, 2014 | 11:24 am

    Just before the Israeli-Gaza conflict, I emailed Mousa, a Palestinian-American actor I know, to say that I wanted to sit down with him to discuss what's going on in the Middle East and to see if there was something the two of us could do as artists to try to help spark change for...

  • Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend

    By Ilana Angel

    October 28, 2013 | 8:05 am

    I love my older sister very much and felt the need to write about her today. I mention her often here, but do not think I have ever dedicated an entire blog to her.  It is time.  This weekend my sister was gracious and kind in a way that I would like to think I would also be.  She...

  • 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...

  • Dating 101: Good, Bad, Ugly & Good Again

    By Ilana Angel

    October 6, 2013 | 1:30 pm

    It has been a complicated week in my dating life.  I was reminded of my past relationship in a way that has released me and allowed me to finally move forward.  It has been seven months since the Englishman decided to be a coward and break my heart. This week rather than be sad...

  • Words With Friends, Twitter & Fear of the Internet

    By Ilana Angel

    September 26, 2013 | 2:08 pm

    I love Words With Friends and I play everyday.  I have multiple games going, currently 19, and my highest scoring word is “WANKERS” for 102 points.  I know some of the people I play with because they are my friends or family.  I also play with a lot of my followers on Facebook and...

  • Russell Brand, Hugo Boss & Nazi Uniforms

    By Ilana Angel

    September 15, 2013 | 3:14 pm

    I have loved Russell Brand for a long time.  I think he is funny, smart, wise, deep, spiritual, and oddly attractive. He is a bad boy, which is both sexy and intimidating. In the interest of full disclosure, if I could have dinner with any celebrity, he would be my choice. ...

  • Polarizing Politics is More Fun Than Watching Miley Cyrus

    By Ilana Angel

    August 29, 2013 | 10:00 pm

    I am sick of all the attention Miley Cyrus is getting for acting like a moron. Her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards was embarrassing, ridiculous, offensive, degrading, and simply not entertaining.  The poor girl is a mess and watching her self-destruct is sad. The fact is...

  • When Roger Waters crossed the line

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    July 26, 2013 | 10:30 am

    Roger Waters is a passionate anti-Israeli advocate. The former Pink Floyd frontman constantly criticize the Israeli government, and is one of the main voices of the BDS movement, calling musicians to boycott Israel. Last Saturday, however, Waters crossed the thin line between...

  • Dating 101: Rearview Mirror

    By Ilana Angel

    July 5, 2013 | 10:29 am

    I have been speaking with a gentleman friend recently about my last relationship, and opened up to him in a way that is both comforting, and disturbing.  We have never met, or even spoken on the phone.  He lives in Los Angeles, is divorced, a dad, Jewish, tall and handsome, yet we...

  • Blood and hate are flooding Europe

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    May 29, 2013 | 12:40 pm

    Muslim communities in Europe are not something new. Many people suffered in middle-eastern lands, went searching for a new home where there is freedom of speech and equal rights, and started to settle in various European countries.  With time, they became more and more noticed. It...

  • Break Up Humiliation, Reflection & Adele

    By Ilana Angel

    April 16, 2013 | 8:46 pm

    When a relationship ends it is humiliating.  When you write about your relationship for the world to see, a break up takes on a whole other level of humiliation. I have spent the last year sharing my love with you.  How we met, our dates, meeting kids, our first fight, our first...

  • Victoria’s Secret, Medicated Flying, Jew Hating & Shabbat

    By Ilana Angel

    December 7, 2012 | 7:56 am

    I watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this week and can I just say, WOW.  These women really are spectacular looking and I watched in amazement as each one strutted her stuff.  I would like to live in a body for that for a day. By for a day of course I mean forever.

  • Do You See Beyond Your Own Life?

    By Ilana Angel

    November 4, 2012 | 11:03 pm

    I met my friend Michael 20 years ago when we worked at the same company.  I was immediately drawn to him and his kindness.  He is one of those people who exude warmth.  We worked together for about four years, and eventually over time lost touch with each other. 

    We recently...

  • Happiness Stinks

    By Ilana Angel

    October 2, 2012 | 6:26 pm

    Why is it that when you are single you cannot find a decent guy to date, but when you are in a relationship, men are not only everywhere, but they are interested in you?  I have been dating the Englishman for almost 7 months and I have never had so many men ask me out.  Very...

  • Pure Love in the Middle of a Travel Nightmare

    By Ilana Angel

    June 13, 2012 | 12:25 pm

    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...

  • The thin line between love and hate

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    April 21, 2012 | 10:15 am

    One of the reasons I write here is to present a different perspective to what you may see or hear on the news. The news may be presented as objective, but when it comes to news, there is no such thing as “objective”: from the topic you choose, to the order in which you present the...

  • Mel Gibson Needs a Jewish Mother

    By Ilana Angel

    April 12, 2012 | 5:27 pm

    I am a writer, a Jew, a mother and a fan of Mel Gibson.  I may in fact be his only remaining Jewish fan, but to be clear, my adoration of him is as an actor not a human being.  I have written about him a few times and was planning to write about him again today, when I decided it...

  • Jon Lovitz, Crime Fighter!

    By Ilana Angel

    April 11, 2012 | 1:07 am

    Last week three teenage girls admitted they drew swastikas, the word Jew, and put crap on the front walkway of the home of a fellow student. They go to school with the girl who lives in the house and they decided to play a prank on her.  Important to note that the girl who lives in...

  • Birthdays, Dating & a Twitter Support Group

    By Ilana Angel

    April 3, 2012 | 10:38 pm

    This weekend will mark my 46th birthday.  I don’t feel 46, or look 46, but I will in fact be 46.  I can vividly remember when my mother turned 35 and I thought she was the oldest person in the world.  My mother is only 22 years older than I am.  I have dated men who were 22 years...

    “People are talkin, talkin ‘bout people.”  Bonnie Raitt

    My Mom is awesome. She is funny, cool, intelligent, kind, a beautiful mother, and a phenomenal writer. She loves her job. Whether it is motherly duties, or giving her opinion, she is very good at both, especially the...

  • A World Driven By Hate

    By Ilana Angel

    March 21, 2012 | 10:57 am

    I have been shaken to my core with the killings in France this week.  I cannot wrap my head around a man walking up to children and killing them at point blank range.  I am proudly Jewish but these killings have scared me and made me nervous.  I am fearful of the world and that’s...

  • Life, Death, Love, Hate, Faith & Prayer

    By Ilana Angel

    March 19, 2012 | 9:34 pm

    It has been an interesting 24 hours.  A series of events have made me examine my life and the future of my child.  It has also made me look at how I am living.  Life is fragile, the world is unstable, and no dream should ever be left unfulfilled.  I want to live bigger and better.

    I...

  • Another Crime of Hate?

    March 19, 2012 | 3:27 pm

    A chilling sequel to my previous post:

    Earlier this morning, a man riding a black motorcycle opened fire outside of “Ozar Hatorah” school in Toulouse, France. Israeli teacher Jonathan Sandler, his two children (3, 6) and another girl were killed.

    Throughout the day, the French...

  • Two Blind Dates: One Epic Failure & One Winner

    By Ilana Angel

    March 15, 2012 | 10:08 pm

    I had two dates last week with two completely different men. While both lovely, they could not be more opposite.  Date #1 was with a financial advisor.  He is just shy of 6 feet tall, has a full head of salt and pepper hair, dark brown eyes, divorced with 3 kids, and 56 years old. ...

  • The Bachelor Finale – ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 13, 2012 | 9:32 am

    To clarify, I am annoyed.  By annoyed of course I mean totally pissed off that I once again got sucked into this show.  It is a complete and total crapfest that has nothing to do with reality, and everything to do with a bunch of losers concerned with finding 15 minutes of fame over...

  • Taking a stand. Together.

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    March 8, 2012 | 2:32 pm

    The Israeli Apartheid week is now at its peak. I write this sentence, and something about these words being put together simply doesn’t fit.

    “Israeli Apartheid Week is an annual series of university lectures and rallies held in February or March.” According to the organization...

  • Is Marriage Like Prison?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 1, 2012 | 11:33 am

    I had an interesting discussion about marriage today.  I was talking to a man in his 50’s who is divorced and dating.  He is Jewish, educated, successful, funny, handsome, and a failure at marriage.  We’ll call him Moshe. Moshe can clearly remember the moment that his wife, his soul...

  • I Don’t Believe in Gay Marriage

    By Ilana Angel

    February 8, 2012 | 8:49 am

    To say that one supports gay marriage implies that gay marriage is somehow different from traditional marriage.  It’s not.  I think all people deserve the right to marry whether they are gay or straight.  If people are going to insist on differentiating gay marriage from...

  • Blog Wars

    By Ilana Angel

    January 27, 2012 | 3:01 pm

    For those of you who read my blogs regularly, or have met me, you know I’m a little sarcastic and like to push the envelope when writing about reality television.  I am opinionated, sometimes harsh, occasionally funny, and always truthful.  I blog my truth and view on the shows we...

  • Darrell Brown Has Pushed the Wrong Jew UPDATED

    By Ilana Angel

    December 25, 2011 | 2:39 pm

    I wrote a blog this week about LeAnn Rimes and the fact that I think her behavior on Twitter, in regards to her husband’s ex-wife, is disgusting.  It was just my opinion, which is what my blog is.  I’m not a gossip columnist, just a writer who shares my opinions and views on things...
