  • Local girl battles cancer, fire and Miami Marathon

    February 12, 2014 | 4:40 pm

    She may only be 10 years old, but Sienna Wolfe’s narrow escape from a bunkhouse fire during sleep-away camp last summer wasn’t the first time she’s eluded death: The Beverly Hills girl is also a cancer survivor.

    Diagnosed when she was 6 with fibromyxoid sarcoma, a soft-tissue...

  • Florida: It’s not just for old Jews anymore

    February 11, 2014 | 11:47 am

    At the Urban Rustic Cafe in a strip mall in this city located between Miami to the south and the Palm Beach retirement communities to the north, the line for a table stretches out the door and into the parking lot.

    Inside the kosher establishment, the volume is loud. An elderly...

  • Ruling returns kosher meals to Florida inmates

    December 17, 2013 | 10:32 am

    A federal judge ordered the Florida prisons service to provide kosher meals to all prisoners with a “sincere religious basis.”

    Judge Patricia Seitz of the U.S. District Court in Miami in a ruling issued earlier this month required the order be implemented by July 1, the Miami...

    November 6, 2013 | 1:37 pm

    The recent Pew survey of American Jews caused a flutter in the organized Jewish community.

  • Real Housewives of Miami Has a Shocking Moment!

    By Ilana Angel

    October 28, 2013 | 7:57 pm

    I have been watching Real Housewives of Miami, but not blogging about it. The show is slow and not interesting, just like the cast. These women and their friendships are fake and it is all silly. We are almost through the season and all we have seen is fighting and crying. Alexia...

  • Ron Dermer bringing to envoy’s post loyalty to Netanyahu, history of abrasiveness

    July 9, 2013 | 2:26 pm

    “I was with him when,” Ron Dermer laced his address to the 2009 American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference.

    Dermer used the phrase five times in the first five minutes of the speech — the “him” being Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Two elements of the address, made just weeks...

  • Review: ‘Pain & Gain’

    By Joan Alperin-Schwartz

    April 25, 2013 | 2:46 pm

    I am so not a Michael Bay fan.  I find everything he does to be way over the top.  Bay doesn't seem to trust his story or the characters and his latest film, 'Pain And Gain' is no exception.

     

     

    'Pain And Gain' is the true story of Miami's Sun Gym gang, which was made up...

  • Petition aims to have Facebook pull anti-Israel page

    February 4, 2013 | 9:38 am

    A Facebook petition to remove an anti-Israel page that uses an expletive in its name has 75,000 likes, the removal campaign's creator says.

    Michael Mendelson of Miami told JTA by telephone that the removal petition against the "F*** Israel" page has been on Facebook for less than...

  • Real Housewives of Miami – Reunion Part 1

    By Ilana Angel

    January 7, 2013 | 7:46 am

    I have been watching all season but did not blog about it more than a couple of times, and then it was only because their behavior was so disgusting I felt the need to say so.  They are boring, desperate for fame, and frankly watching Elaine Lancaster trying to be relevant was just...

  • The Pathetic Real Housewives of Miami

    By Ilana Angel

    November 16, 2012 | 7:37 am

    I am watching this show not because it is entertaining, but rather because it is fascinating.  By fascinating of course I mean I watch, drink, and laugh. I laugh at them and how ridiculous they are.  These women are embarrassing themselves, their children, their friends, and their...

  • The Real Housewives of NYC Stays Fake but Gets Good

    By Ilana Angel

    August 9, 2012 | 8:01 am

    I’ve been watching all season but truth be told, I’m bored. The new chicks are not that interesting and the old chicks have a hag quality that is not entertaining.  I simply could not be bothered to blog about it.  I wasn’t paying close enough attention to recap it, so I...

  • Real Housewives of NYC - Ramona the Roach

    By Ilana Angel

    August 1, 2012 | 8:59 am

    I have been watching this season of RHONYC but not blogging about it. I went in not knowing if I would like the new girls and frankly after the first show thought it would be too difficult to pay close enough attention to write about what I was watching.  It was just not that...

  • NCIS Tel Aviv?

    By Stuart Schoffman

    June 21, 2012 | 11:55 am

    Every morning, at my kitchen counter, I leaf through two Israeli dailies, both of them in English.  The Hebrew papers I read in cafés, not every day.  I watch the TV news at 8 pm, on Channel 2.  I rarely watch the Israel Broadcasting Authority news in English, but you can see it –...

  • Miami temple disinvites Wasserman Schultz

    May 25, 2012 | 10:15 am

    Miami’s Temple Israel said it canceled tonight’s appearance by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) due to security concerns, but the congresswoman – chair of the Democratic National Committee– called it “internal politics” after learning that a leading GOP donor quit...

  • Biggest federation trip to Israel in years brings more than 700 from Miami

    April 26, 2012 | 3:18 pm

    From afar it appeared to be a luminescent snake, twinkling in the dusk that was just beginning to cloak the desert mountains framing the Dead Sea.

    Upon closer inspection it turned out to be hundreds of Jews from South Florida bearing glow sticks making their way down Masada’s...

  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan on playing a Jewish hotelier

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    April 7, 2012 | 2:05 pm

    “It’s Jeffrey Dean,” a voice says on the line, and it’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Jewish hotel mogul Ike Evans in the 1950s Miami noir series “Magic City” on STARZ.  Dean says he’s driving his 2-year-old son, Gus, to a cabin in the Catskills, a nice vacation from the...

  • Jews navigate ‘Magic City’  of midcentury Miami

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    April 4, 2012 | 2:35 pm

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays the Miami Jewish hotel mogul Isaac “Ike” Evans in STARZ’s “Magic City,” set in 1959, recalled scenes in which his character encounters genteel and not-so-genteel anti-Semitism. One takes place at a club that does not normally admit Jews, where...

  • At Passover, let my people go south

    April 4, 2012 | 12:08 pm

    Passover celebrates the Exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, their wandering in the desert for 40 years, and their ultimate deliverance to the Promised Land.

    But a contemporary observer might be forgiven for imagining the holiday marks a different sort of migration:...

  • Bomb threat evacuates two Miami-area temples

    September 16, 2010 | 11:49 am

    Two Miami-area synagogues were evacuated following a bomb threat.

    A call Wednesday morning to Temple Dor Dorim in Weston, Fla., said there was a bomb at the synagogue as well as at Temple B’nai Aviv, also in Weston, the Miami Herald reported.

    The bomb squad did not find any explosives at either temple.

  • With the Republican base on the ropes, all eyes are on Florida —again

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    October 8, 2008 | 12:22 am

    Most Jews live in three states, two of which, New York and California, are already in the bank for Sen. Barack Obama.

    It's the third one, Florida, that has the presidential campaigns in a frenzy. There are roughly 650,000 Jews in Florida, out of 18 million residents. Concentrated in...

  • Delivery chef unable to savor his culinary success

    By Adam Wills

    September 3, 2008 | 11:14 pm

    Crab cakes drizzled with zesty chipotle lime sauce and peppercorn brandy glazed pork loin are a few of the entrées The Fresh Diet delivers to clients. But its Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, who developed most of the dishes offered on the meal-delivery program's menu, has never...
  • Better late than never, Theodor Herzl, children reunited in death; Ex-N.J. Governor McGreevey’s Isra

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Theodor Herzl, Children Reunited in Death
     
    Two of Theodor Herzl's children were reinterred in Jerusalem after decades of debate. Hans and Pauline Herzl, who died in 1930 and were buried in France, were laid to final rest alongside the Zionist visionary at the cemetery that carries...
  • Wild Ride With Wildlife in Miami

    By Lisa Alcalay Klug

    April 14, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    Stretching along the popular beachfront area of Miami, approximately 650,000 Jewish residents support more than 100 synagogues, several Jewish community centers and abundant kosher restaurants, including authentic Thai food. The South Florida city even employs a full-time kashrut...

  • On Shabbat, Stay Cool as a Cucumber

    By Lisa J. Solomon

    August 5, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Miami is hot. In the summer, even sometimes in the winter, the air arches off the streets radiating heat circles that bend but do not break as you walk though them, slowly, slowly.

    My grandparents, Oma and Opa, bought an apartment in Miami Beach that my family of eight piled into for...
