  • Arguing Like Abraham

    November 5, 2013 | 9:22 am

    I facilitated a parenting discussion this past weekend, which is one of my favorite things to do (besides hanging out with my family and - shamefully - watching Vampire Diaries after the kids have gone to bed). We talked about why our children should be helping around the house,...

  • Dating 101: Saying You’re Sorry

    By Ilana Angel

    November 3, 2013 | 8:55 am

    I think it is both unnatural and invigorating to date in middle age. I am 47 years old and truly surprised to still be dating. I’m not a good dater.  I am great in a relationship, but meeting new people, dating, and the time spent dating to see if there will be a relationship is...

  • What happened to Rabin’s memorial day?

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    October 29, 2012 | 10:30 am

    Yesterday, we mention the 17th annual Memorial Day for the murder of the Israeli Prime Minister, Izhak Rabin. Rabin was murdered by an Israeli, Jewish assassin, during an assembly for peace on November 4th, 1995. Moments after the end of the assembly, right after joining the...

  • Live and let live

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    September 27, 2012 | 10:27 am

    I have recently encountered several comments condemning and disrespecting some ways of religious beliefs. Some were aimed at me, some aimed at others. Surprisingly enough, in "some ways of religious beliefs" I don't mean other religions, I mean different ways of Judaism. It is...

  • A Rabbi is Just a Man

    By Ilana Angel

    August 2, 2012 | 6:43 pm

    I love a good Rabbi.  Truth be told, when I started my spiritual journey to find my own level of Judaism, I loved all Rabbis.  I was in awe of men who could quote Torah, and guide me through my faith.  I have always thought Rabbis were special, often thought they were sexy, and...

  • The Dance of Love

    By Ilana Angel

    July 18, 2012 | 10:00 pm

    I have been dating a man for a little over four months.  By dating of course I mean I have been in a relationship.  From our first date there was a connection and we simply fell into a relationship without really dating.  It has been fun, effortless, complicated, and exhausting.  I...

  • Opinion: Commanding respect vs. demanding respect

    February 1, 2012 | 12:38 pm

    “For not as a human sees [does the Lord see]; humans see only what is visible, but the Lord sees into the heart.” — I Samuel 16:7

    It is not hard to mistake the outside for the inside. We do it all the time. Shine and sparkle often distract us from inner shallowness.

  • Goat Alert: Avoid Mark Zuckerberg

    By Lauren Bottner

    June 1, 2011 | 2:44 pm

    New Year’s Resolutions:
    1. Wear a tie every day
    2. Learn Chinese
    3. Kill a goat??

    I get that Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, is innovative.  I’m all for swimming against the stream and forging your own path. But I’d rather my chicken arrives from the grocery store without a...

  • 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. ...

  • Madoff’s Redemption

    By David Suissa

    December 24, 2008 | 2:47 am

    If you're an active member of the Jewish community -- and perhaps even if you're not -- there's almost no way to properly digest the Bernie Madoff scandal. It's like a quadruple shot of cheap vodka that you drink quickly on an empty stomach. You feel disgusted and drunk at the same...
  • Report: Respect for religious freedom down in Israel; Grandfather, mother charged in girl's murder

    September 24, 2008 | 11:38 pm

    Report: Respect for Religious Freedom Fell in Israel

    Respect for religious freedom in Israel has declined, according to a new U.S. State Department report.

    An increase in "societal abuses and discrimination" against "some evangelical Christian groups as well as Messianic Jews" has...

  • Have We Lost Respect for Each Other?

    By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

    December 18, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    From my own experience and from the reports in The Jewish Journal, it is evident that it has become more and more difficult to plan for a dialogue between fellow Jews on the subject of Israel -- much easier to organize a discussion between Christian and Jewish leadership or even...

  • Restoration’s Silver Lining

    By Rachel Brand

    October 23, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Silversmith David Friedman has the unique ability to trace the origin of almost every antique that comes across his desk. "People ask me all the time, 'How did you know that? How did you know that goblet was actually made in India?'" Friedman said. "We just know from experience. We...

  • Jew in a Gentile World

    By Marisa N. Pickar

    October 3, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I found a job! After spending three years in Jerusalem, I am now gainfully employed in Orange County. I'm also in deep culture shock.

    Before moving to Israel I had lived in Los Angeles, where Jews abounded at each of my jobs. I rarely interacted with non-Jews in Israel, much less...

    By Julie Gruenbaum Fax, Religion Editor

    One of them calls himself a hardliner. Another says he doesn't believe in pluralism. Still another admits he has...
