  • Scratch it Up

    By Elliot Steingart

    August 22, 2012 | 11:48 am

    Addiction is a scary thing. In ninth grade I was mentally addicted to cigarettes for almost a week. I couldn’t stop thinking about cigarettes until I smoked half a Parliament Light and gave the rest to someone else. I’m lucky that I’ve never been addicted to drugs, alcohol, or...

  • Dominique Strauss-Kahn is a Pig & a Pervert, Not a Rapist

    By Ilana Angel

    August 24, 2011 | 10:35 am

    Mr. Strauss-Kahn became a free man yesterday when all sexual assault charges against him were dropped.  We will never know what really happened, but as I said from the beginning, I don’t think he raped anyone. Dominique Strauss-Kahn is a pig and a pervert to be sure, but he is not...

    Bravo is home to some great reality television.  Now it is also home to two of the worst shows on television.  I sat through Millionaire Matchmaker and Most Eligible Dallas tonight.  It was painful and really awful. Do they really think we will watch again?  These two shows totally...

  • Super Bowl XLV

    By Julia Bendis

    February 8, 2011 | 12:42 pm

    As we all sat around watching Super Bowl last Sunday, and I watched the commercials, I couldn’t help but cringe every time an inappropriate commercial came on.  I wouldn’t even care so much if the kids around the country weren’t watching it, including my 5 and 11-year-olds.  The...

    The gaunt-looking...

  • Find the Gems

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    September 27, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    There once was a man who could provide only potatoes for his family's subsistence. As the monotony and the poverty wore on, he prayed, and his prayers were answered. There fell into his hands a mysterious map to a magical Island of Diamonds.

    Begging a boat, he set sail on a long and...

  • The Honeymoon is Over

    By Eric Silver

    February 24, 2000 | 6:59 pm

    Nine months after Ehud Barak took office as "everybody's prime minister," the honeymoon is over -- with his voters, coalition allies and Arab partners in the quest for peace. It is too early to write him off, but the Labor leader can no longer rely on loyalty or goodwill to see him...

    December 9, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    There's a Yiddish saying that goes: "I've been poor and I've been rich. Believe me, rich is better!" In the Midrash we read: "Nothing in the universe is worse than poverty; it is the most terrible of sufferings." (Exodus Rabbah 31:14)

    When Gary Winnick was a youngster, his immigrant grandfather, a former pushcart peddler on New York's Lower East Side, gave him the then princely sum of $25. Where another boy might have rushed out to buy a bicycle or treat his buddies to a soda fountain binge, Gary carefully put the...

  • Lifestyles of the Rich and Miserable

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    June 12, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Everything in Creation has a purpose, teaches the Midrash. But when someone gave us a gift subscription to People Weekly magazine, I was left to wonder if I had found the first truly purposeless thing in God's universe.

    You know People, the epitome of "lite" culture, with its short,...
