  • Online Dating, Fix Ups & a Cat Lady Future

    By Ilana Angel

    April 14, 2013 | 9:48 pm

    Well it happened.  After feeling sorry for myself, crying, and drowning my sorrow in red wine and cosmos, I have rejoined the dating world.  It was a surprisingly easy decision.  People give the advice that after a break up you need to heal and give yourself time, but the truth is...

  • Is Matchmaking a Mitzvah and how many are supposed to accomplish in our lifetime?

    By Julia Bendis

    February 28, 2011 | 10:17 am

    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. ...

  • Teens and philanthropy are a MATCH

    By Cliff Henry Zimmerman

    August 2, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Survivor. No, not the television show, as I wish were the case. A young Jewish woman and personal friend, Amy Farber, is a real survivor who was diagnosed with LAM (short for the fatal lung disease lymphangioleiomyomatosis) a few years ago, when she was 35.

    I met Amy Farber last...

  • To Tell the Truth

    By Caroline Cobrin

    July 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Harry Potter's Mirror of Erised, tucked into a secret room in the dark corridors of Hogwarts, allows the person who looks into it to see what they most desire to be. There seems to be a similar notion in the world of online dating.

    A computer becomes a tool to create a "new and...

  • Singles - Soulmate Surfing

    By Melanie Herschorn

    June 1, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Dating can be scary. Dating in a foreign country can be petrifying.

    When I arrived in Los Angeles in 2003, going on dates was the farthest thing from my mind. I came here for love -- my love of the entertainment biz, but more importantly (and naively), my love for a guy.

  • Dating Creeds

    By Dara Lehon

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Believe it or not, I've never felt quite as valuable, attractive and desirable as the times I've gotten dumped. Well, sort of.

    According to some once-doting men, I'm terrific. I'm also beautiful, talented, smart, sassy, funny, dynamic, cute and sweet. To make matters worse, I'd make...

    Learning about the importance of giving tzedakah is a basic tenet of any Jewish education.

    But p

    "It's not just about giving away money," said Emanuel's Rabbi Laura Geller. "It's about teaching young people how to be responsible Jews when it comes to giving tzedakah. It's not...

  • Superflirt

    By Carin Davis

    August 19, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Faster than a benching rabbi. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall bachelors in a single bound. Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's SuperFlirt.

    That's right, I'm spending three days in San Diego at Comic-Con, the world's largest comic book convention....

  • Grandma’s Secret

    By Andrew Wallenstein

    April 8, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    There is no person on this planet more concerned with my single status than my grandmother. No phone conversion with her is complete without several highly unsubtle prods about finding a suitable Jewish female companion.

    Try as I might to steer our discussions as far away...

  • Haven’t I Seen You Before?

    By Gaby Wenig

    February 12, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    There are many pitfalls of online dating. Posting your own profile can make you feel exposed. You can be e-mailing someone whose photo promises that he looks like Brad Pitt's younger, taller and more handsome brother, whose profile pledges that not only is he poetic, sensitive, kind...

  • The Great Jewish Hope

    By Carin Davis

    September 18, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Dmitriy Salita doesn't fight on the Sabbath, which gives his competition a much-needed day of rest from this powerful junior welterweight. With a 13-0, 10 KO record, the 5-foot-9, 139-pound fighter who goes by the moniker "The Star of David," is a rising star in the boxing ring.

  • A Match Made in Cyberspace

    By Keren Engelberg

    July 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "Sometimes fate takes too long." So reads the tagline on the home page for matchmaker.com, an Internet personals site.

    But anyone who's tried Internet dating (or any kind of dating, for that matter) knows that putting yourself out there is no guarantee of success. You're really just...

  • God vs. the Angels

    By Dennis Prager

    October 17, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    This past Saturday, something extraordinarily rare took place: My team, the Anaheim Angels, was positioned to win a post-season series -- against the New York Yankees no less. And my friend and radio colleague Hugh Hewitt, who could not use his seats (first row, near home plate),...

  • Just the Right Size

    By Mike Levy

    November 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    This is a heartwarming story about a kidney.

    The kidney in question belongs to Mike Jones. It used to belong to Patricia Abdullah.

    Jones and Abdullah have very little, apparently, in common. Jones is an African American man. Abdullah is a female descendant of the Hawaiian royal...
