  • My Mother’s Mostly Beautiful Heart

    By Reeva Hunter Mandelbaum

    May 11, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Overall, she has a mostly beautiful heart" is what the cardiologist, my brother's friend, says as we quietly stare at the beating organ on the computer screen. We're waiting for other images, the not-so-beautiful parts, from the lab after her emergency angioplasty.

    By Joel Haber

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    When I was growing up, I never had to ask my mother what she would be serving at the seder. It was essentially the same menu every year: dishes like homemade chopped liver, chicken soup with matzah balls, turkey with gravy, mom's special "Shabbos potatoes" (first boiled then roasted...

    Here is an interesting tidbit: The world's top "Jew for Jesus" is, by ancestry, a non-Jew. Fancy that.

    You know Jews for Jesus, the lovable San Francisco-based organization that uses the appeal of Jewish kinship to introduce Jews to "Y'shua ha Mashiach" (Jesus Christ). Its executive...

  • A Woman’s Touch

    By Rabbi Karen Deitsch

    March 23, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The stereotypical Jewish woman is strong, supportive, receptive and respected. Growing up, she is showered with love,
