    By Ilana Angel

    October 26, 2015 | 10:44 pm

    I want to take a moment to say thank you to the people who came into my life to save it. I am a lucky girl and very aware of my blessings, but without the kindness and brilliance of my doctors I would not be as happy or healthy as I am right now. There are many people who helped me...

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    December 18, 2013 | 12:30 am

    It’s said we Jews have a prayer for everything. In a sense, it’s true. Traditional Jewish prayer books have prayers for a wide variety of things, from the abstract, like the wish for peace, to the more concrete, such as gratitude for the miraculous way in which our bodies work.

  • Girlfriends + Vodka + New York Men = Healing

    By Ilana Angel

    April 18, 2013 | 9:22 am

    I was invited to a party last night, and after spending all day trying to figure out a good enough excuse to not go, I went.  I’ve been feeling anti-social since my break up and wanted to stay home.  I don’t feel pretty or funny, which is unfortunate because I am hilarious and...

    Proposition 8

  • Look up to see angels

    November 12, 2008 | 11:39 pm

    Vayera is a rich portion throughout, but I linger on the iconic images in the first lines: Abraham sits at the opening of his tent in the heat of the desert day, recovering from his circumcision. He looks up and sees God, in the form of three men, often described as angels, standing...

    September 25, 2008 | 3:07 am

    Sept. 11, 2001, occurred just six days before Rosh Hashanah. It was the tail end of what had been a difficult 12 months on the Jewish calendar: violence in Israel, a presidential election arbitrated by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Enron scandal.

    Then, on a particularly gorgeous...

    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...

  • The great (non) depression

    By Rabbi Anne Brener

    November 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    I overdid it yesterday. Perhaps I misjudged the line between exhaustion and sloth.

    Or perhaps my recuperation from the cancer treatment requires a slower return to fitness than yesterday's exertion.

    But this morning's desire to stay in bed needs to be honored, unlike yesterday's,...
