Apparently, The Tooth Fairy is going through tough economic times too. 10% of children did not receive any money this year, and 7% received less than a dollar. Are you kidding me? First of all, I don’t understand the whole “Tooth Fairy” thing as it is. In what messed up...

Every time I’m at the Supermarket, I start to remember my very first trip to one just like it. When you come to America from the former Soviet Union and enter ANY grocery store, you are bound to go into shock. As I’ve written before, the shelves of U.S.S.R.’s grocery stores...

Ever since my Grandmother passed away twelve years ago, I have been feeling like I am never alone. Even if the house is completely silent and free from all and any rambunctious/annoying children, I always feel like there is someone else in there with me. Being pretty superstitious,...

I am a huge advocate for standing up for what’s right, freedom of speech and people’s right to speak their mind; when it has direct impact on their lives, like a local issue. Most often than not, I am raising hell over various issues, opening my big mouth and trying to change things...

How do you prepare for Passover when the rest of the world doesn’t stop to observe it? When the rest of the world takes a break for Christian holidays, and people have time to cook and prepare for a religious celebration, do they realize how much it sucks to be a Jew, a Muslim or...

I had to write about this phenomenon called ‘Date Night’. Every couple I know has date nights where they spend an evening away from home, kids, pets, etc, while throwing money away doing it… Only in America do people label every activity including a simple night out with their...

Men. Sometimes I just don’t even know what to say. Recently my friend turned me onto this site www.hookchasup.com. Basically, a 40 year old guy who looks cute enough and probably at least moderately successful, made a website to offer $10,000 to the person who introduces him to...

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 have to admit that watching the show “Sister Wives” on TLC made me think about what it would be like to have so-called wives in my family. To tell the truth, it doesn’t seem like such a terrible idea. If you think about it, the only bad part are too many children by all those...

Attending a wedding the other week of a couple that I introduced, made me think of the many Mitzvot that we are supposed to perform in our lifetime. Having been somewhat of a Matchmaker since I was in high school, I had never really thought about it as a Mitzvah, or a good deed. ...

Most people know, I am not a big sports fan. Sure I like to watch an occasional basketball game, only because every TV in the house has been hijacked to watch the Cleveland Cavaliers get their asses handed to them, yet again, by every single team in the NBA. But, that’s for later…...

Sandra Bullock’s estranged husband is seen in a US Weekly photo posing as Adolf Hitler, wearing a German soldier’s cap and giving a Heil Hitler salute.
The 2004 photo of Jesse James was taken before his marriage to Bullock and released this week amid the couple’s marital problems, which caused James to check into a rehabilitation clinic.
James’ attorney, Joe Yanny, told CNN that the Nazi hat was a gag gift from James’ Jewish godfather. James also lived for a month on a kibbutz in Israel, Yanny told CNN.
