  • The Dark & Dirty Shahs of Sunset Reunion

    By Ilana Angel

    February 18, 2013 | 1:16 pm

    A reunion for this show was probably not a good idea.  We saw these people first season and it was love, on the second season the shine was off and we saw that perhaps they were not as great as we thought, then we get this and see that there are not a lot of redeeming qualities...

    Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, two of the most subversive writer-directors in the realm of the R-rated youth comedy, have been friends since they were in high school together in Randolph, N.J. Their “Harold & Kumar” franchise, which revolves around an Asian-American and an...

  • Bravo Must Recast Some of the Ladies of the Real Housewives of NYC

    By Ilana Angel

    I watched part 2 of the New York City reunion twice and writing this blog has been painful.  There is so much screaming and ugliness that it’s beyond being funny, and is now just pathetic.  The main thing I decided after this entire season is that some of these chicks need to go.

  • Are high school reunions going extinct?

    March 16, 2011 | 1:21 pm

    I was part of the infamous Class of 2000, the class that everyone has been watching since the time we entered kindergarten in 1987. Back then, it seemed almost impossible to imagine what the world would look like in 2000, but everyone was certain that the turn of the millennium would...

  • Curb to host ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion—- Top 5 ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion Q’s

    By Jay Firestone

    It’s happening.  The cast of NBC’s monster sitcom, “Seinfeld” will reunite during the next season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

    It’s really an “anti-reunion reunion,” says Julia Louis-Dreyfus in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. 

    My guess is if you liked “Jerry,” you’ll love...

  • Reunion Re-Kindles ‘Miracle on Florence’ Memories

    By Andrea Rosenwein

    April 5, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    It was called the "Miracle on Florence Avenue," a small, humble synagogue that thrived for 50 years before shuttering its doors in 1986, a victim of old age and changing demographics. By all accounts, Huntington Park Hebrew Congregation, the second Conservative synagogue established...
  • Rescuer and rescued reunion aids Polish talks on Shoah claims

    By Dinah Spritzer

    March 8, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Arranging a reunion between a Jewish woman hidden during the Holocaust and her Catholic rescuer might have paid unseen dividends for Jewish organizations fighting a property restitution battle in Poland.

    A day after Jozefa Tracz Czekaj and Miriam Schmetterling saw each other for the...

  • A Deux Ex ‘Mashina’ You Wouldn’t Believe

    By Amy Klein

    May 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The Rolling Stones have done it. Cher has done it.

    The comeback -- that big farewell concert tour followed by a reunion and a new album -- is about as American as apple pie.

    It's not unheard of in Israel, either. While solo artists like Arik Einstein, Shlomo Artzi, Shalom Hanoch...

    May 5, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When Danae Elon, daughter of famed Israeli journalist and author Amos Elon, was 6 months old, a Palestinian Muslim knocked on the door of her home in East Jerusalem and asked for a job.

    He was hired on the spot and for the next 20 years, Musa Obeidallah was Danae's nanny,...

  • High Marks for Jewish Swimmers

    By Tom Tugend

    March 31, 2005 | 7:00 pm


    "Watermarks" is a life-affirming documentary that celebrates the constancy of courage and grace, from youth to old age.

    Its setting is the waltz-loving Austria of the 1920s and '30s, where the lithe young swimmers of the fabled Hakoah ("the strength") Vienna sports club are...

  • Fate With a Frummie

    By Carin Davis

    July 8, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    A funny thing happened on the way to the Old City. Well, technically, it happened in the Old City. My friend, Matt, invited me to Shabbat lunch at his rabbi's house. I covered my cleavage and accepted the invite. Packed with kids and black hats, this third meal was standing-room...

  • The Circuit

    By Michael Aushenker

    L.A. resident Ralph Harpuder reports that he had a fantastic time at the 2002 Rickshaw Reunion in Foster City, Calif., which brought together 320 former refugees, including Harpuder, from around the world who were all part of the Shanghai Jewish Ghetto. During World War II, Shanghai...

  • The Editor’s Corner

    July 2, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    When the invitation to my 50th high school reunion in New York City arrived in the mail earlier this year, I knew I would attend. I just wasn't sure why. Friends in Los Angeles were amused. I did not seem the type. Was there a special girl I wanted to see after all these...
