  • Strasser - I Wanna New Hug

    By Teresa Strasser

    August 25, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Back in the primitive days of male hugging, my dad was what trend watchers might call "an early adapter." When few of the other Little

    League dads hugged their sons, my dad clutched my older brother any chance he got, Mr. Focker-like, at the drop of a bat.

    My brother appeared to...

  • First Person - Death by Oprah

    By Annie Korzen

    August 18, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Oprah Winfrey is doing a show about "Ethnic Men Who Reject Their Own Women." I am invited as an expert witness because I speak and write about the ugly stereotypes Jewish men have created about their wives and mothers.

    You've all heard the jokes: the nagging wives, the frenzied...

  • Not-So-Nice Jewish Boy

    By Jonathan Kesselman

    August 4, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When Israeli producers came to America to audition Jewish men to star in "Nice Jewish Boy," their upcoming Bachelor-type reality show, I decided to throw my hat in the ring. After all, who better than me -- a commitment-phobic, ardently secular, anxious, heavily medicated, pale glass...

  • Father’s Day Fix

    By Leonard Felder

    June 16, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    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...

  • Where Is the Woo?

    By Mark Miller

    March 10, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I wish I lived 200 years ago so I could woo a woman the way single men did back then. Who even uses the word "woo" anymore, much less knows what it means? Who even gives much thought at all to what they say to the opposite sex?

    The media and the MTV generation and life's...

  • The Court of Cupid

    By Lori Gottlieb

    February 10, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    It seems a bit disingenuous for women to get all bent out of shape over Harvard President Larry Summers' recent suggestion that innate gender differences may account for variances in math and science skills. After all, most women maintain that innate gender differences exist when...

  • Jewish Sportsmen?! No Joke

    By Carin Davis

    June 3, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Why sit home and watch "SportsCenter" on TV when you can take part in a local sports highlight?

    On Sunday, June 6, the Southern California Jewish Sports Hall of Fame will hold its annual induction banquet. Yes, there are enough extraordinary Jewish sportsmen and women in the...

  • Like a Jew in a Bagel Store

    By Carin Davis

    May 27, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I'm no longer a virgin. To Israel, that is. This single babe just returned from her maiden voyage to the land of milk and honey. And all I can say is -- there were a lot of honeys. Jewish men everywhere.

    In the restaurants, on the streets, in the shops -- I didn't know where to...

  • Where Are High EI Guys?

    By Sharon Lynn Bear

    January 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Dating is not brain surgery, but for some men it is more difficult. I think I've discovered why. The current thinking on intelligence is that people have several types of intelligence, which may not be equally developed.

    Psychologist Daniel Goleman coined the phrase "emotional...

  • Hair Club for Jews

    By Carin Davis

    December 18, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Hi. My name is Carin and I have a Jewfro.

    Heeb hair. A Moses mop. A latke lid. I'm down with my fun girl curls, but I can't say the same for the men I meet. My big hair is the Mason-Dixon Line of my L.A. dating life. Some men love the untamed, wild, bed-head look of my natural...

  • Divorced-Dad Dater

    By Arlene Schindler

    December 4, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    For the past two years I've been swimming exclusively in the dating pool of divorced dads (DDs). This makes me a Divorced-Dad Dater (DDD).

    I love DDs because they will always make sure you've had enough to eat and have gone to the bathroom before long car rides. To me, DDs are more...

  • The Guy Clock

    By Carin Davis

    November 13, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Ryan and I did the L.A. supercasual thing for six or seven months. When I tried to rev up our relationship from supercasual to just plain casual, he freaked. I'm talking full-on, take-it-to-Dr. Phil meltdown:

    "I haven't dated enough women."

    "I haven't seen enough of the world."

    "I...

  • Sorry for the Sin

    By Carin Davis

    October 2, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Yom Kippur's on deck, boys -- so you better bust out your little black book. No, not the machzor. Your other little black book -- the one where you keep all your digits.

    Pull out your PalmPilot, run through your phone sheet, sift through the scribbled notes on the back of crumpled...

  • Right Place, Right Time

    By Rabbi Ben-Tzion Kravitz

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    It was Sunday afternoon, July 6, 2003, and I was approaching the end of a successful three-week mission to Israel dedicated to responding to a new wave of missionary activity. In addition to lectures, news interviews and meetings with government officials, my colleagues and I...

  • Age-Old Dilemma

    By Carin Davis

    May 8, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    My friend Lindsay's friend, Michelle, hosted a 30th birthday bash for her friend, Beth, last Saturday night. So of course I was there.

    And so was birthday girl Beth's friend Michael's friend, Rob. And Rob was hot.

    Six-foot-two before breakfast, with broad shoulders and blue eyes,...

  • Painted Clowns

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 24, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    I'm drinking at a bar called the Dirty Horse on Hollywood Boulevard. Well, that's not the real name but I never got a look at the sign and that name seemed right.

    It fits the place, with its plastic pitchers of beer, painted clowns on black velvet, bowls of peanuts and the...

  • The Sabra Seduction

    By Gali Wexler

    January 2, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    It was an offer I could refuse -- but only for a short time. Yaniv was his name, and his sweet entreaty epitomized the dating habits of the macho, cocky Israeli man (can you say caveman with a cell phone and Chanel sunglasses?). He cunningly wanted to prepare hot cocoa for me in his...

  • The Matzah Bull

    By Carin Davis

    December 19, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Christmas Eve 2001. Bing Crosby's on my radio, Jimmy Stewart's on my television and I'm on my couch.

    I usually find a night with my remote pretty satisfying, but tonight it's not hitting the spot. Tonight I'm feeling grumpy, disheartened and a little bit lonely.

    It just seems like...

  • My Chanukah Miracle

    By Carin Davis

    November 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    I'm an experienced multidater, so I'm usually pretty good at juggling men.

    But this Chanukah, I think I dropped a couple balls. Every year I throw a latkes-n'-liquor, dreidel-til-you-drop, anti-Antiochus Chanukah rager. It's a typical "they attacked us, we lived, let's eat" Jew crew...

  • Get With Shorty

    By Lilla Zuckerman

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    How many times must I sit around the brunch table and listen to my girlfriends lament the lack of decent men in this town?

    There is not one kind, smart, and employed who is not nursing a dangerous addiction, they say.

    There is not one emotionally present, who is great in bed and...

  • An Inch Late, a Dollar Short

    By Paul Franklin Stregevsky

    September 26, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    "Well?" prompts my wife, gliding down the stairs in a black satin evening dress. I give her the elevator eye, approving until my line of sight crosses her ankles to find ... Payless flats.

    "No heels?" I ask.

    "I can't," Lina sighs, meaning: "I'd tower over you."

    At 5 feet 7 inches,...

  • Charm School

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 11, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    "I'd like to give you the keys to my apartment," he said. This was after our first date, if you could call it that. We met for a couple drinks at a bowling alley bar with all the ambiance of a Greyhound station in Lompoc.

    I picked the bowling alley. You don't want ambiance when...

  • Will the Real Jew Please Stand Up?

    By Lori Gottlieb

    April 4, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    I thought I could tell the difference between Jews and gentiles, and not just by using Lenny Bruce's criteria: chocolate is Jewish and fudge is goyish.

    Granted, people are individuals -- and particularly post-Sept. 11, stereotyping seems gauche if not utterly narrow-minded -- but...

  • Men in Black

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    March 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The 74th Annual Academy Awards program will be remembered, at least by me, for women's gowns with faux see-through gauze fronts and men's suit jackets down to the knees.

    Sunday night. For my town, Malibu, Oscar night is a kind of Yom Kippur. Roads are deserted; the local restaurants...

  • Women Who Don’t Need Men

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    March 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    When Jennifer Westfeldt and Heather Juergensen shared bunk beds at a 1996 Catskills theater workshop, they swapped stories about Mars-Venus angst.

    Westfeldt, an Upper West Side Jew, was breaking up with her college boyfriend and dating for the first time. Juergensen, a downtown...

  • 2002 terror attacks

    By Journal Staff

    March 14, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Jan. 15 Palestinian gunmen kill an elderly Israeli American who drives into the Bethlehem area.

    Jan. 17 Six Israelis are killed and 33 injured when a Palestinian terrorist with an assault rifle attacks guests at a bat mitzvah celebration in Hadera.

    Jan. 22 A Palestinian terrorist...

  • Are You Frum.Com?

    By Gaby Wenig

    March 7, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    "Shtetlgirl" was having a hard time meeting religious men. She was used to dating men she met in youth programs and schools, but at 22, away from her hometown and living in Los Angeles, she found herself without a structured forum to meet anyone. "Most of the guys I was meeting were...

  • The Kollel Community

    By Gaby Wenig

    March 7, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    When, as a young woman, Rebbetzin Yehudis Fasman met Chaim, her husband-to-be, he laid out his life plan and made sure that she agreed with it. His plan was not to become a millionaire or to spend hours in the office shooting up the corporate ladder. Nor did he want to become a...

  • Uncle Mom

    By J. D. Smith

    November 8, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Have you ever wanted to be a Soccer Mom? If you're not one, it looks like a pretty good gig from the outside: Leisurely lunches with the girls and shopping trips to the mall. Do a couple of errands, get the kids off to their after-school amusements, then pick up some take-out for...

  • To Shop Is to Cope

    By Teresa Strasser

    November 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    I'm in a Commerce outlet mall feverishly darting from store to store. A swirl of images plays across my frontal lobe.

    There are caramel-colored leather boots and pale pink thongs from Italy and a mint-green skirt with a tiny bow on the front. There's an unassuming corduroy blazer...
