    Illyse Zesch likes to start her Passover shopping early. So it isn't surprising that, two weeks before the holiday, she made a trip with her fiancé -- Rabbi Steve Conn of Santa Clarita's Temple Beth Shalom -- to the Kosher Club on Pico near La Brea, the largest kosher market in...

    My friend Rhonda asked me nonchalantly, "Where are you going for Pesach this year?"

    A few weeks ago, I was shopping at the Beverly Center when a girl who was maybe 12 years old held up a garment and yelled across the store, "Hey, Mom, what about this?"

    "This" was a skimpy red T-shirt with the words "porn star" emblazoned across the chest. I was shocked by the...

  • It’s All About You

    I had to buy a present for my sister recently. Shopping for women, if you don't happen to actually be a woman yourself, is a nightmare.

    Whatever the rest of America made of last week's news that Loehmann's discount department store is declaring bankruptcy, for American Jewish women, it is very, very sad.
