    By Felisa Billet

    When I congratulated "Julie" at her son's bris, I couldn't believe that she looked better than I did at my wedding. Like most of the other women attending the ritual circumcision, we were amazed that anyone could be so put together eight days after giving birth. Trim and graceful...

    About five years ago, Nina Dayan noticed that her husband's moods began alternating between anger and depression. Then her husband started doing strange things: He would hide her keys, steal money from her purse and share his social security number with strangers on the phone.

    Several years ago, my wife, Linda, and I attended a conference of psychotherapists and sat next to a recently divorced female therapist who said to us, "Next time I'm going to marry a Jewish man."

    My wife asked, "Oh, are you Jewish?"

    The female therapist replied, "No, but I've always...

    As a federal court considers whether to reconnect Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, Jewish scholars are turning to halacha, or Jewish religious law, for guidance on the issue.

  • Purim Saga

    By Rob Eshman

    March 24, 2005 | 7:00 pm


    How fitting that the heartbreaking saga of Terri Schiavo is coming to a head during Purim. Granted, the connection to a holiday known for merrymaking is not obvious. On its face, Purim celebrates the rescue of Persian Jewry from certain destruction in the time of King Ahasuerus....

    When the U.S. Open swings into New York Aug. 30, you'll have to squint to find Israel's tiniest tennis player.

    Few days have haunted me like April 15, 2002. It was the day Time magazine screamed out from its cover that women cannot have it all.

    Like a slap to the face, the writer reported that the biological odds are against getting pregnant after 35 and that stories of women conceiving into...

    "So what were my dying words?" Hallie Lerman laughs as she recounts the dream in which she was on her deathbed, surrounded by her husband and two adult daughters. "Not 'I love you, or take good care of my future grandchildren.' No. I said, 'Don't abandon Israel!"

    I am completely frozen.

    I have just walked out of a pitch meeting in Santa Monica. Wilshire Boulevard is breezy and gorgeous. It

    is 4 p.m. I have been married for 17 years and now, it appears, I'm not. For the last 17 years I had a wife, a family, a home, a dock in the open sea of...

  • Two Mothers

    At first glance, it would be hard to imagine two women with less in common than my mother and my husband's mother. You can begin with the obvious differences in cultural and religious background: my mother grew up Jewish in the Bronx, while my mother-in-law, a Presbyterian, has lived...
