  • My boyfriend is REALLY into the World Cup.

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    June 17, 2014 | 10:40 am

    Soccer: know nothing about it, never cared about it, and frankly, don't understand what people find in it. Unlike other sports, basketball, for instance, a soccer match can end with almost no action on the field. A game can actually end with no goals (but many "almosts",) and...

  • Handy Man

    By Elliot Steingart

    April 12, 2013 | 11:23 am

    I made a new friend. His name is Jose Luis. I knew he was my friend as soon as he said "Hello, my friend."

    Jose Luis helped me move my bed, kitchen table and love seat into my new apartment down the hall from where I used to live. He also mounted my TV. My girlfriend led the...

  • Love, Faith, Hope & a Broken Heart

    By Ilana Angel

    March 27, 2013 | 10:22 pm

    It is with a broken heart that I share with you my relationship with the Englishman has ended.  We broke up this week and my heart is shattered. He is a remarkable person and I am disappointed because I have never wanted, or worked so hard, for a relationship to work.  My romantic...

  • Loving kindness

    By Dr. Limor Blockman

    March 27, 2013 | 11:30 am

    Dr.Limor’s Cradle of Love

    
"Desire fulfilled is a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12)


    What entitles the glorious inscription 'act of kindness' in a romantic, couplehood setting?

    Caring for one another's well being and healthy mindset is a crucial component in a long term...

  • Promises, promises

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    October 2, 2012 | 10:10 am

    After a week of UN speeches, I had the urge to tell you about politicians from my point of view. For several days now my mind has been occupied with a rumble of thoughts and feelings, and I figured the only way I can make sense of it all is to write it down. So who are politicians?...

  • Israel is swamped with singles

    June 27, 2012 | 4:16 pm

    Israelis are known for their gregarious behavior and love nothing more than spending time with their group of close friends. It’s a trait that is wreaking havoc among the quickly mushrooming singles population and threatens to have long-range anthropological effects on Israel’s...

  • For the Love of God, Just Break Up With Him Already!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 18, 2012 | 9:30 am

    There is a culture in our relationship obsessed young women’s world that has obfuscated a dark truth.  We have so overly focused on fixing our relationships that we have become completely blind to the fact that we’re in terrible relationships.  We read articles and talk and think for...

  • Chasing parental boredom while catching some foreign films

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 11, 2012 | 11:24 am

    I was in seventh grade when my dad took me to see a Turkish movie exploring the lives of five prisoners given a week’s home leave in the aftermath of a coup d’etat.

    Why did he take a kid to see the movie “Yol”? To teach me a valuable lesson about suffering? To expand my...

  • Frenemies?

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    March 22, 2012 | 1:40 pm

    First, I would like to point out that what I’m about to write is something I never thought I would even think: a new Facebook campaign changed my perspective on mankind.

    Well, maybe not on mankind, but my perspective on several matters of my life has changed entirely, thanks to a...

  • Marriage, family pressure and Jewish geography

    By Pini Herman

    March 14, 2012 | 6:04 pm

    What is the difference between a pit bull and a Jewish Mother? The pit bull eventually lets go.

    It’s an old joke, but one that speaks to the role of familial connections among Jews, which play a large role in how we consider the Jewish geography of weddings and marriage. Where...

  • The Way to a Man’s Heart is Through His Stomach

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 28, 2011 | 3:18 pm

    I showed up this morning at my boyfriend’s apartment at 6 am with three dozen pumpkin cookies.  Perhaps I’m not the most naturally domestic girl I know, but every so often I feel inspired.  He’s had to put up with a lot from me lately and I wanted to do something nice and surprising...

  • The Darkside of Me

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 18, 2011 | 8:41 pm

    I’m sorry for the brief delay in posting.  My Grandfather passed away on Saturday.  He had been sick for some time now so although at one point we were close, it wasn’t a total shock.  But death is always hard.  And it forces another side of all of us to emerge.  You can only...

  • Making Amends to My Boyfriend on Yom Kippur

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 7, 2011 | 3:00 pm

    Guest blogger and my dear sister, Jenna Kagel has written a letter to her boyfriend to make amends for Yom Kippur.  She has allowed me to repost it here.

    Miguel,

    I’m sorry that every time you watch a boxing match on TV, I feign a terrible headache that necessitates your assistance....

  • Is He My Soul Mate or Just a Good Mate?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    September 15, 2011 | 12:40 am

    I used to believe in soul mates as much as I believe in the New Yorker – which is to say a lot.  Not just when I was little but I remember talking to my mom about it not long after I graduated from college and defending the idea that it was fated in the stars that there is only one...

  • Susan B.

    July 12, 2011 | 6:46 pm

    When Susan first e-mailed me, it was to pitch herself to one of my single peeps. One of the pictures she sent me was of her standing, in a blue cocktail dress, one hand leaning on a silver Aston Martin, in the driveway of a beautiful home. Not wanting my peep to think she was high...

  • Doesn’t Anyone Believe in Faithful Marriages Anymore?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    July 6, 2011 | 1:57 pm

    Despite employing austerity measures in my home for the next month till taking the bar exam (canceling cable, putting newspaper delivery on hold, teetotaling), I could not avoid reading the New York Times Magazine article in Sunday’s paper about marriage and infidelity that has...

  • Charles P.

    July 5, 2011 | 5:51 pm

    I wrote and starred in a short film, and the director brought Charles in as DP (director of photography). I’ve shot quite a few videos before — always simple setups with a small crew. So when I asked my friend Yitzy if we could use his apartment to shoot a video, I assured him it...

  • Intermingling Marriages

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 30, 2011 | 10:43 am

    I am back from my whirlwind weekend in France.  My job as Demoiselle d’honneur is officially over.  And Tess is a wife.

    Going into this weekend, I didn’t really think that a French groom and an American bride would lead to a large culture clash.  It wasn’t like Tess was...

  • While gays push to marry, heterosexuals fear commitment

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    June 27, 2011 | 12:53 pm

    Now that the tide has turned in favor of gay marriage by America’s second most-populous state permitting it, it’s time to put the debate behind us and focus on more important things, specifically saving American marriage.

    Yes, I know. The opponents of gay marriage have been...

  • Date Down or Slim Down

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 14, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Yes, I Still Think You Should Get Skinny
    So as you may know, a while back, I posted a blog about why I think you should get skinny.  You can read it here.  It was reposted as the “this” on Jezebel which you can find here.  And since then, I’ve been taking in what has been a...

  • Jewish Men Don’t Cheat! Ha! And Ashley Madison is a Dating Site!

    By Julia Bendis

    May 17, 2011 | 11:55 am

    Ever since Tiger Woods slipped and unleashed a fury onto himself, every woman out there has been asking the same question: “How could he?  Why would he?”  Then, Jesse James, a.k.a. Mr. Sandra Bullock followed in suit, not to mention countless government officials; gay or straight. ...

  • Date Night Phenomenon?

    By Julia Bendis

    April 13, 2011 | 6:02 pm

    I had to write about this phenomenon called ‘Date Night’.  Every couple I know has date nights where they spend an evening away from home, kids, pets, etc, while throwing money away doing it…  Only in America do people label every activity including a simple night out with their...

  • You Should Be Skinny

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    April 4, 2011 | 2:30 pm

    This is not my advice on how you should get skinny.  I’m simply telling you, you should be skinny.  Everyone has to figure out what sort of diet and exercise plan and tricks and tips works for them.  Since I retired from dancing professionally, my weight has been pretty steady –...

  • Breaking All the Rules

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 26, 2011 | 1:50 pm

    Today, I’ve given my blog entry over to a very special guest, my sister Jenna Kagel.  I thought you might enjoy hearing from someone completely out of the scene and in a happy relationship for a change.


    I remember being in college and hearing a story of a family friend who had...

  • Aristophanes on Creation and Love

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 24, 2011 | 10:57 am

    I went to the live Radiolab show at UCLA’s Royce Hall, which by the way was an incredible evening, and heard a beautiful story that I cannot stop thinking about.  I will paraphrase it for you as best I can, but really I won’t be able to do it justice and I hope you read more...

  • Letting Yourself Go

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 17, 2011 | 12:59 pm

    My sister has been in a relationship for two years now and she’s very proud of the fact that she’s let herself go.  Not in the traditional sense of becoming unattractive.  She’s a gorgeous young twenty something who has probably never weighed more than a hundred pounds and has...

  • When Mr. Nice Guy Doesn’t Get That He’s Mr. Nice Guy

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 24, 2011 | 11:16 am

    A couple that are friends of mine, Gwen and David, have been going through some rough times lately. She’s a super smart, very pretty girl, who has dated a string of a$$h*l@s who have treated her like dirt. Probably something about being a little too nerdy to ever be that popular...

  • Who Says No to This?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 9, 2011 | 11:15 am

    So this past weekend, I had one of those long girly dinners where you go out to eat, drink wine till you’re giggling obnoxiously, and talk about men.  The topic turned to what happens to us when we as the girl in a relationship are the ones who get rejected, as in turned down for...

  • Getting It Right

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 8, 2011 | 6:29 pm

    I went on a great date recently.  I was someone’s guest for a fundraising gala and had a really fun time.  I get a lot of emails from people who say that I only concentrate on what men do wrong.  Much to my dismay, I realized perhaps this true but it is not a good representation of...
