    October 4, 2013 | 9:37 am

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told U.S. media he would not initiate contact with the new Iranian president, but would not turn down an overture out of hand.

  • We are Carlos Danger

    By last Wednesday, thanks to the magic of the Internet, I had seen as much of Anthony Weiner’s private parts as if I had spent the afternoon with him in the shvitz.

    The former congressman and New York mayoral hopeful had sexted the pictures to his 23-year-old crush, Sydney...

    While Passover is the time to clean out chametz, single Jews apparently will be cleaning out their social lives.

  • Millennial Manners

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    November 16, 2011 | 2:32 pm

    Have you noticed that when you make plans with someone, you almost never really make plans with them?  You essentially make plans to talk with them on the phone at a certain time from a certain location.  This drives me crazy.  If we’re meeting at 6:30 and we’re both on time and...

  • To call or not to call - that is the question…

    My phone rings.  I answer.

    - Hello Ma’am.  My name is Blah Blah (I’m not good with names, can’t remember what the hell he said) from Avis Heating and Air conditioning.  I’d like to talk to you about your heating system.  Would you be alright with that?

    - Sure, I would be alright...

  • Leave a message after the beep

    By Julia Bendis

    September 11, 2011 | 10:52 pm

    Here’s something I think about almost every time I am about to leave a message for someone.  Do we still need to record an outgoing message telling people to ‘please leave a message after the tone’?  Do we really need to remind people when and how they need to start recording a...

  • Voicemail and My Father’s Outgoing Message…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 2, 2011 | 2:59 pm

    The other day a friend of mine told me that I am the only person she knows that still owns an answering machine…  Apparently, everyone else in the world has long done away with those and only using electronic voice-mail now.  I’m a bit slow with technology, I admit.  However, I...

  • 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. ...

  • Email OCD and other social media overload!

    By Julia Bendis

    December 20, 2010 | 2:26 pm

    The other day, I started to wonder if anyone else has the same obsessive compulsive behavior when it comes to Facebook, cell phones, Blackberry’s, Blueberry’s, ipods, iphones, ipads and God-knows what else…

    For a long time, I resisted getting a more ‘appropriate’ cell...

  • Let Your Fingers Do the Gift Shopping

    When it comes to the High Holidays, festive meals aren't complete without turban-shaped challahs, pomegranates and apples and honey. As a dinner guest, supportive family member and friend, you may be on the lookout for thoughtful gifts. Turns out, in Israel, Rosh Hashanah is a...

  • Sins the Rabbis Left Out

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    September 16, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The writers of the machzor were pretty comprehensive in listing the multitude of sins we commit as a community over the course of the year. Some of them -- such as foul speech, unscrupulous business affairs, sexual immorality and fraud -- are remarkably relevant today. But the...

    Phones will be ringing in at least 5,000 Jewish homes around Orange County on March 14, when volunteers pitch in to help raise money for O.C.'s Jewish Federation, the umbrella fundraising organization that helps support a dozen Jewish agencies.

    This year, though, Super Sunday dialing...

  • Jewish Research Calling

    April 27, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    If you get a phone call in the next few months from a stranger with lots of questions, don't assume it's a telemarketer.

    The person on the other end of the line may be more interested in hearing about your Jewish identity than telling you about the latest credit card deal.
