  • Performing You

    By Emily Stern

    October 26, 2014 | 11:38 am

    For the love of creation,
    When you share what is happening to you,
    whine, say your truth. It’s a performance of the highest kind to see the glorious vessel we are as human beings. What is revealed is a human example beyond the one anyone has ever known. Ask for someone to listen to you

     

    while they know

     

    they are you.

     

    They listen to the performance

     

    you do of yourself

     

    for their illumination.

  • There is nothing like seeing your kid singing Christmas Carols!

    By Julia Bendis

    December 17, 2010 | 1:47 pm

    Wouldn’t you agree that there is nothing like watching your child singing Christmas Carols in a school performance?  I am sorry, let me re-phrase that.  There is nothing like watching your Jewish kid singing Christmas Carols, in a school performance!  Am I right?

    Well, as much as I swore to never speak or write about this Bieber kid, here it comes:

    "I'm angry about everything," comedian Joan Rivers says.

    By George Robinson

    October 12, 2006 | 8:00 pm


    Although he doesn't exactly think of it this way, Joshua Bell is the latest in a long line of Jewish violin-playing aristocracy.

    Even though 16-year-old singer Liel Kolet was born on a kibbutz in northern Israel, she'd prefer to be called an international artist rather than an Israeli one. That largely explains why many of the younger generation of Israeli rock/pop buffs would know little about her. Nor is she...

    Sixty years after the end of World War II, Vienna has reclaimed its roots as a city of culture. Not the culture of stoic monuments to faded glory or landmarks illuminated by historical plaques, but in a living, breathing, heart-still-pumping way. Grand-yet-graceful music, art and...
