  • Dutch watchdog reports record levels of online anti-Semitism

    July 29, 2014 | 11:20 am

    A Dutch watchdog group said it was observing record levels of anti-Semitic hatred online.

    Meldpunt Discriminatie Internet, or MDI, said the current volume of reports on punishable hate speech against Jews is unparalleled during the organization’s 17 years in existence, the AT5...

  • Best. Site. Ever.

    By David Suissa

    November 6, 2013 | 1:06 pm

    It’s common these days to micromanage what information we receive. Many of us have a list of favorite Web sites and blogs we regularly go to, as well as Facebook pages and mobile apps that reflect our individual tastes and ideologies. It’s a way of maintaining some level of control...

  • My Single Peeps: Jered F.

    November 1, 2012 | 11:18 am

    When Jered, 35, first tells me, “I came from a very indulged upbringing, and it kind of put me at a disadvantage,” I start to laugh, because it sounds like something Mitt Romney would say after getting caught for being obscenely rich during the years when his wife claimed they ate...

  • Rick S.

    October 3, 2012 | 2:31 pm

    At 48, Rick is a happy guy. He likes life. He likes smiling. He’s also a bit irritating to be around when you’re exhausted and barely have enough strength to open your eyes after a blink because you’ve been up all night with a cranky 5-month-old and a 2-year-old who’s having night...

  • Riots, filmmaking and the wrong thing to say

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    September 24, 2012 | 10:10 am

    In the past week, Muslims from all over the world lost it because of a movie. Since I haven't seen it, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say it is, in fact, more offensive than any artistic protest ever made before. Does this justify violent behavior on such scale? Does...

  • Bekah L.

    September 12, 2012 | 3:05 pm

    When I was 5 I knew I wanted to try Froot Loops, but my mom wouldn’t let me. That was the extent of my goals.  Bekah wanted to be a teacher. And she became one. To be fair, I’ve also eaten a good amount of Froot Loops since then, so we’ve both kind of accomplished what we wanted...

  • Eric Z.

    September 5, 2012 | 12:41 pm

    I like Eric right away for the most shallow of reasons — he’s got a New York accent and he dresses like my father did: jeans, tucked-in polo shirt, tassel loafers with colored socks. East Coast preppy. My father died 20 years ago, but sometimes little things can trigger my...

  • My Single Peeps: Brandon B.

    August 15, 2012 | 1:26 pm

    Brandon’s an only child. He tells me he’s the kind of kid who kept to himself. “I didn’t break out of my shell until late in high school. I’m still kind of introverted, but an outgoing introvert, if that makes sense.”

    “How’d you break out in high school?” I ask....

  • Laurie S.

    August 8, 2012 | 11:51 am

    I met Laurie through another single peep, Katie. They were eating breakfast at one of my favorite breakfast spots, Hugo’s in West Hollywood. Try the El Desayuno Burrito De La Casa. It’s less complicated than it sounds on paper. So is Laurie. She lives in Brentwood. She has two...

  • My Single Peeps: Rob T.

    August 1, 2012 | 11:52 am

    I had a lot of difficulty with this interview. It’s actually the hardest one I’ve ever done, simply because Rob was so difficult to figure out. He’s a grown man drinking soda from a Marvel Avengers reusable cup. He looks lost. A little on the fringes. He’s out of work but...

  • My Single Peeps: Mike K.

    July 25, 2012 | 2:23 pm

    I generally don’t meet people at their offices. I feel it’s best to get to know them in a neutral place, like a coffee shop. But Mike told me he worked in porn, and the deviant in me was intrigued. Suffice it to say, his office might as well have sold paper supplies, it was that...

  • Lynn R.

    July 11, 2012 | 3:03 pm

    Lynn has been a widow since 1996 and is doing her best to fall in love again. But she’s finding the world of online dating difficult to navigate. On one date, she told me, “I found out the guy was a bookie.” He was in a bad mood because he had just lost $8,000. “There was one...

  • Karen B.

    June 13, 2012 | 3:12 pm

    Karen got divorced a year and a half ago. “I think at first it was hard to come to terms with — ‘I’m divorced.’ It had a kind of negative connotation, but now I look at it like I’m an experienced person. I know exactly what I want. I know exactly what I don’t want. And...

  • Jews say no to online porn; Mormons applaud

    By Mark Paredes

    May 22, 2012 | 1:50 am

    The speakers at Citi Field said that if improperly used, the Internet can destroy families, with gambling, pornography and other addictions. But mostly, surfing the Internet is a colossal waste of precious time young people could spend working or studying. – Rabbi Gershon...

  • Teach children to be their own Internet filters

    May 21, 2012 | 3:01 pm

    Tens of thousands of Jews filled Citi Field in Queens on Sunday and heard from haredi Orthodox leaders that the Internet should be avoided in the home at all costs and used sparingly at work, and then only with a filter blocking content that could be damaging spiritually.

    Debate as...

    The project, which will feature 3-D images of the streets of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and other attractions in Israel such as the Dead Sea, the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth and the Ramon Crater, will be launched with a ceremony...

  • EG Daily

    March 15, 2012 | 3:27 pm

    The first time I saw EG I was just starting to train at the Howard Fine Acting Studio.  She looked familiar, but I didn’t put it together immediately.  Then it clicked — Dottie!  From “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure”!  After we became friends and had worked together on various...

  • Shanee F.

    March 1, 2012 | 2:53 pm

    Shanee was born and raised in Beverly Hills by Israeli parents. After college, she moved to New York for four years, where she worked in marketing. “I absolutely adore New York, but I came back because my heart is here — my family and good friends are here. I have the most...

  • Proper etiquette for social media!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 29, 2012 | 10:11 pm

    Prior to Twitter, and Mark Zuckerberg’s brilliant invention of Facebook (hopefully you can feel the sarcasm), or even texting on our phones, people used to have manners.  Not only manners, but some form of global etiquette when it came to dealing with others.  I truly believe that...

  • Sarica C.

    January 4, 2012 | 1:12 pm

    I’ve become fascinated with meeting single peeps who are only children. Sarica is one of them. Whatever negatives there are growing up without siblings, the positives are immediately apparent. Sarica, like others I’ve met, is overachieving, confident and a natural leader. She...

  • Be the Change! Be Better!

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    January 3, 2012 | 10:43 am

    Five years ago I went on a New Year’s cruise and made two resolutions:

    To buy a condo and to find a long-term relationship. I had been focused on these items already but now I was ready to make them happen.

    By January 18, 2007, I had my first date with George and by January 20 I...

  • Single for the Holidays vs. Desperate Online Dating

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 12:44 am

    I love the holidays.  From the sound of kids laughing at Hanukkah, the smell of latkes, Christmas carols in the mall, gorgeous wrapping paper, Kleenex and diamond commercials that make me cry, to people being in the holiday spirit, it all makes me happy.  There is something magical...

  • Eva F.

    November 29, 2011 | 5:50 pm

    I met Eva this year as part of EILI, an entertainment leadership group through The Jewish Federation. She’s tall, has dark hair, and is stacked like the House of Pancakes. A ditzy actress, I told myself. Our first weekend together was at a retreat in Ojai. We heard lectures,...

  • An internet guide to finding Israeli products

    November 17, 2011 | 11:38 am

    You could say it all started in 1967, when one of Howard Bernstein’s daughters got married.

    “I insisted we serve Israeli wine,” the Chicago businessman and founder of the Buy Israel Goods (BIG) Web site said. He had visited Israel both as a tourist and in his position as an...

    Internet users can now view the Dead Sea Scrolls online.

    The Israel Museum on Monday launched the Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Project, which provides access to high-resolution images of the scrolls, as well as additional data and background information.

    The project is a collaboration...

  • Express Lines, Personal Space, Stupid People & Meeting Weird Men

    By Ilana Angel

    August 5, 2011 | 12:54 am

    Yesterday I went to the grocery store.  It was super hot out, had been a long day, my son left for a camping trip, I was sucked into stupid drama, had a headache, and wanted to get in and out of the store in a hurry.  I raced through the market on a mission, and ended up in the...

  • More Facts, Questions and Things I Will Never Understand or Have Answers To.

    By Julia Bendis

    June 29, 2011 | 4:22 pm

    1. Why Oh why do people insist on asking how you are doing, when they don’t plan on listening to the answer?  Just say “Hello” and keep walking!  But don’t ask people how they are, and then interrupt them mid-sentence to tell them how late you are and need to run!

    2. Why is it that...

  • 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. ...

  • Virtual gifting

    February 15, 2011 | 11:20 am

    Tally Oliveau loves gift cards so much that she hopes to do away with them altogether — in their physical form anyway.

    The Woodland Hills entrepreneur last month launched iCardMall, a service specializing in virtual gift cards and e-greeting cards. More than 80 brands are...

  • My Interview with the Department of Homeland Security!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 1, 2011 | 10:45 am

    Years ago, I had applied for a position with the Department of Homeland Security.  Why would I apply for a position with the Homeland Security?  Who knows…  Remember my post about my ADD, and pins in my ass?  Well, that’s why.  This was right after 9/11, and they just formed this new...
