  • How to organize your books

    By Marty Kaplan

    June 30, 2014 | 1:34 pm

    It’s a sin to throw away a book.

    I don’t mean e-books.  If they’re cluttering your e-reader, all you have to do is delete them, and you don’t even have to do that, since you can pretty much fit the Library of Congress on a thumb drive.

    Aunt Ruth is more organized than I can ever imagine being.  These are all new recipes waiting to be tested and rated.  Yes, she rates them, files them as being "good" or "bad," or draws a huge X through them in a favorite cookbook to make certain she never tries it again.  Being...

    When Holli Rabishaw wanted to start a family eight years ago, she traded in a high-powered career in the corporate world for the life of a yoga instructor and full-time mom.

  • My leather-bound life

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    June 12, 2008 | 12:55 pm

    I would hardly call myself a luddite. I’m addicted to my e-mail, have become an expert on Cube Crash on Facebook, even met my husband on JDate.

    But there is one thing I refuse to update: my datebook.

    When I graduated from high school, a friend of my former stepmother’s bought me...

    By Naomi Glauberman

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Big Sunday began in 1999 with 300 Jewish volunteers devoted to a day of good works. That was impressive in a city notorious for lack of civic involvement -- but that was just the beginning.

    There's a worn American flag hanging in the second-story window of Moshe Salem's stately Valley Village home.

    Inside the Mnaje Mojo hospital -- "one coconut" in Swahili -- it was absolute chaos. The place was teeming with people and I had to push my way through what seemed a never-ending crowd to get to the small room at the end of the corridor.
