    Orit Harpaz loved being pregnant with her son Theo, now 9. The Sherman Oaks-based photographer got pregnant quickly, had no trouble carrying the child, and delivered at home with her husband, Gal, also a photographer, at her side. At the same time, she watched her best friend...

    When I saw Anna Angel’s name in the news headlines this week, I had to take a double look because for a second I thought it was my name.  I have been haunted by this woman’s story and unable to sleep since reading about her.  I cannot stop crying for this woman I do not know.  This...

  • Getting ready for baby

    June 12, 2013 | 4:50 pm

    Rabbi Julia Weisz found herself in a bit of a conundrum when she became an expectant mother.

    On the one hand, the rabbi and director of education at Congregation Or Ami in Calabasas was cautious about holding a baby shower. In the earlier stages of her pregnancy — she is due to...

  • Happy Mother’s Day by Guest Blogger, My Son

    May 11, 2013 | 12:44 pm

    In honor of Mother’s Day, I am submitting my mother's blog and would like to give 17 reasons as to why my Mother is the best, on account of the fact that is how many Mother’s Days she has had.

    1. She is extremely uplifting. She tells me how proud she is of me, and how incredible...

  • Mother’s Day: Redefined

    May 10, 2013 | 2:03 pm

    There are tons of stereotypes about Jewish women … the overbearing matriarch, the do-it-all maven, the neurotic meshugennah, the your-business-is-my-business yenta. You might embody an aspect of one or none of these. You might love the idea. Or shudder at the thought of it....

  • A mitzvah called shmooze

    By David Suissa

    May 8, 2013 | 12:18 pm

    In a crummy economy, people are always looking for good investments — a promising stock, a real estate opportunity, a star mutual fund. It’s really not that different in the “mitzvah economy”— donors and do-gooders are also looking to squeeze the maximum amount of goodness out of...

    I believe I have the most beautiful mother in the entire universe.  Granted I’m biased, but the truth is that she is nothing short of being a beautiful soul in every way possible. 

    At this moment, I am sitting in a waiting room at Tampa General hospital while my mom is in surgery...

    With three young adult children living in Israel I decided early last spring to leave the comforts of my husband, home and dog in the lunchbox section of Beverly Hills for a rather worn looking flat in the city center of Tel Aviv.  Pathetic language learner that I am I continued my...

  • Parenting

    October 17, 2012 | 5:04 pm

    My road from twice-a-year Jew to Torah-study groupie took 40 years. With the heady days of the High Holy Days, Sukkot and Simchat Torah still fresh in my mind, it’s worth examining how I got here. 

    During my youth, my family and I attended synagogue only during the High Holy...

  • The Meaning of Memory: A Yizkor Reflection

    September 19, 2012 | 1:57 pm

    I grew up in a home filled with food and love and laughter and music and Yiddishkayt and stories. I was the youngest of four kids and we were part of a tribe in Boro Park, Brooklyn, with my uncle Nat’s family living on the floor above us, my uncle Ruby’s family living next door to...

  • Leaving Home or Going Home?

    I am heading home to Canada today.  It is the first time I am going home to see my family in 2 years.  My mother has been here to see me, but I’ve not been to see my siblings, nieces or nephews.  I love them all very much and this is too long to not see them.  Not only am I going...

  • Dressing like my Jewish mother

    May 10, 2012 | 1:05 pm

    On Mother’s Day, I’m going to wear my mother’s jewelry. No, this isn’t a mom’s day story about gender identity; it’s about Jewish identity and whether possessions can help pass it on.

    As part of her legacy my mother, Pearl, left to my sister Wendy and me a set of Torah Fund...

  • Chewable Xanax and the shoe debacle

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 18, 2012 | 12:02 pm

    I had to look inside myself, which was kind of like looking into my high school locker: moldy half-eaten sandwich, a few loose Starburst candies, heaps of notebooks and burrito-stained gym clothes obscuring the few things of value. Sure, there’s a book of Sylvia Plath poems and a...

    This past weekend marked the 3rd anniversary of my son’s Bar Mitzvah.  In honor of the day, he was asked to read Torah at Temple.  He accepted the invitation and for the past week I have been listening to him practice which has been lovely.  It made me wonder, is my Jewish life...

    Yesterday was the last day of my children’s freedom, and incidentally the last day of my imprisonment.  As I counted down the dwindling hours of winter break, I was also counting down the hours till my head was going to stop throbbing and my voice would sound human again (oppose to a...

    What is it about children that makes them want to jump all over people, me in particular?  I am sitting on the couch, minding my own business when out of nowhere my six-year-old son decides to pounce on me.  Not only pounce like a cheetah, or a lion or pick your own animal but start...

    The other day my kids asked me if I had a pet when I was a child, which made me tell them a little story about the kitten we had for a week.  This story went something like this:

    When I was about eight-years-old and my brother five, we begged our parents to get us a dog or a cat all...

    August 2, 2011 | 2:37 pm

    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...

    It is Friday and I have never looked so forward to a weekend in my life.  My son will be home from vacation on Monday and so this weekend will undoubtedly be painfully long.  I am so excited for him to come home I could bust.  It has been 4 weeks and I want him back.

    Maybe some of you noticed that I haven’t written in the last week.  Alright, none of you noticed but that’s not the point.  My husband and I took the boys on a long awaited vacation on board the “brand new” Carnival cruise ship called ‘Splendor’, or as I am calling it ‘Ineptness’.

    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 absolutely love shopping at Vintage and Second-Hand shops.  The thrill of getting a one of a kind piece of jewelry or dress is indescribable!  Finding that beautiful 50’s dress that no one else has is one of the reasons I enjoy Thrift stores, another is the fact that I absolutely...

    Is it just me or do other people have a huge phobia of Dentists?  I don’t know why I have such a fear of them, but I do know that I’d rather have another baby than go to the Dentist.  Actually, now that I think about it, I would even prefer a colonoscopy to having someone put...
