  • This is Me (or is it?)—The Facebook Paradox

    By Mindy Leaf

    July 21, 2015 | 5:39 am

    My sole Facebook friend (acceptance required, as she is my stepdaughter) has lately been  "pinning" her life on Pinterest. It seems she's discovered yet another way to collect and display her "likes" and interests ... in place of actively engaging in her life. I could be sounding...

  • A Hungarian lens on photography

    By Tom Teicholz

    June 18, 2015 | 10:33 am

    “It is not enough to have talent,” photographer Robert Capa once said, turning an old saying on its head. “You also have to be Hungarian.” By which he meant Hungarian-Jewish. This point is reinforced in an exhibition of post-World War II Paris photographs by Ervin Marton at the...

  • Cancer obscura

    By Jonathan Kirsch

    June 11, 2015 | 10:11 am

  • Israel’s three days of actual winter - watch the photo album

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    January 8, 2015 | 8:49 am

    The way us, Israelis, react to temperature drop, can really seem strange to anyone living in a country with actual wintertime. Living in such a warm place, we only get about a month or two of winter, with one weekend of a "crazy, out of control" storm. Obviously, we all go crazy...

    By Tom Teicholz

    November 24, 2014 | 1:02 pm

    For a newly married couple, the wedding day itself can be a blur. The nerves, the excitement, the rush of a life-changing celebration. That’s why the ever-present, artistic eye of the photographer becomes so important in capturing memories of the occasion.

    To see what makes a...

    A big blow to Israeli soccer

    Last Monday was a shameful day for Israeli soccer. During the 33rd minute of the derby between Hapoel Tel-Aviv and Maccabi Tel-Aviv at Bloomfield Stadium, with the score tied at 1-1, a Hapoel fan jumped out of the stands and ran onto the pitch to...

  • Photojournalist Phil Stern: From WWII to James Dean

    By Elyse Glickman

    September 10, 2014 | 1:06 pm

    Some life journeys are so epic, it seems there’s no way they could be captured, even in a Hollywood movie. And yet, as it turned out, all photojournalist Phil Stern needed was his trusty camera.  

    A heralded chronicler of World War II and Hollywood icons such as James Dean and...

  • My 50 best friends are Holocaust survivors

    April 24, 2014 | 6:31 pm

    “How did you learn to make brushes? Who taught you?” I’m talking to Boris Abel on the phone, trying to fill in some small details requested by my editor of his Holocaust experiences. Boris tells me once again that when the Russians occupied Lithuania in 1940, they nationalized his...

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    April 16, 2013 | 12:33 pm

    Israel, my home, celebrate its 65th birthday.  That’s really not much. It’s almost nothing on a scale of countries to age, but in this short period of time, we sure have been through a lot. In 65 years, Israel has been through wars, diplomatic issues, growing population, ground...

  • 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....

    By  Tom Tugend

    August 8, 2012 | 3:21 pm

    Growing up in Beverly Hills, Marissa Roth remembers her father and mother, both European refugees, as parents who repressed their emotions and personal suffering, and forbade their children to cry.

    April 25, 2011 | 12:01 pm
