  • Light at the End of the Tunnel

    By Ilana Angel

    October 30, 2012 | 2:00 pm

    I am having one of those days.  I am over thinking, over analyzing, over stressed, and over tired. I don’t do well when I’m not in control, and I am faced with a series of things that require time to sort themselves out. Patience is not my forte, so you can imagine how hard waiting...

  • The Gold Man – A Guest Blog

    By Ilana Angel

    August 27, 2012 | 12:07 am

    I spent the weekend in San Francisco with the Englishman and our kids.  It was his birthday, and with his oldest daughter there attending university, we headed up so we could celebrate together. Our kids all get along in a marvelous way and I am truly blessed because I love his...

  • Saying Goodbye

    By Ilana Angel

    August 16, 2012 | 5:51 pm

    I left the home of my mother and sister yesterday and my heart is broken.  Saying goodbye to my mother is crushing and I can hardly breathe.  It is painful to live so far from her.  When my mother left Israel with her young family, my grandmother saw them off and my mother vividly...

  • Helping mothers have it all

    By Susan Freudenheim

    June 27, 2012 | 4:22 pm

    The much-discussed article in the July/August Atlantic magazine begins with a story that likely will be familiar to any working mother. The author, Anne-Marie Slaughter, is at an evening work event talking to very important, very professional people, and all that’s really on her...

  • In love and defense

    March 8, 2012 | 12:27 pm

    I have a complicated relationship with Israel. My younger brother made aliyah last year and is currently serving as a paratrooper in an elite unit of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), leaving me feeling simultaneously proud, nervous and occasionally nauseous all at once. We were...

  • Brothers reunite with hidden ‘sister’ after 65 years

    March 23, 2011 | 6:24 pm

    During a teary-eyed meeting in Wellington, New Zealand, on Tuesday, 70-year-old Elli Mantegari met members of the family who hid her for almost two years in Nazi-occupied Holland. The reunion brings an end to a search that has lasted 65 years.

    Mantegari, then Elli Szanowski, was...

  • Sister Wives, Polygamy, not too bad of an idea…

    By Julia Bendis

    March 14, 2011 | 9:50 pm

    I have to admit that watching the show “Sister Wives” on TLC made me think about what it would be like to have so-called wives in my family.  To tell the truth, it doesn’t seem like such a terrible idea.  If you think about it, the only bad part are too many children by all those...

  • 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. ...

  • The Relationships in Between Your Relationships

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 31, 2011 | 3:14 pm

    I had a big fight with my sister last week.  My sister and I are incredibly close and have been for our entire lives but we can still fight pretty passionately.  I have a week off in March and want to take a trip with her because although we’ve traveled extensively as a family, we...

  • My sister Sarah

    By Rabbi Susan Silverman

    November 15, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I live in Israel, seven hours ahead of New York. Last week, when my sister Sarah Silverman performed in Manhattan at Carnegie Hall, I opened my eyes every hour or two, and counted backwards. The last time I woke it was 2 a.m. Hmmm... 7 p.m. in New York. She must be doing a sound...
  • I’ll love him like a brother ... in-law

    By Jay Firestone

    June 7, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    When I was growing up with two older sisters, the only thing I ever truly wanted was a brother -- someone who could torment my sisters when I was tired. After realizing that I was the only reason my parents wouldn't have another child, I was tempted to pray for an "accident," but I...
  • Books: Czech teen’s words and art put a face on the Holocaust for me

    By Daniel A. Olivas

    June 7, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I attended grades one through eight at St. Thomas the Apostle School in Los Angeles during a time of great unrest in our country -- the Vietnam War, the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., police brutality against war protesters during the Chicano Moratorium....

  • Holy Doubt

    By Rabbi Debra Orenstein

    December 7, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    This week's Torah portion contains a story that most of us skipped in Hebrew school -- the story of Dina.

    Dina goes out to "see the daughters of the land."

    Shechem, the eponymous local prince, sees her, sleeps with her and vaye'aneha -- sexually forces or humiliates her.

    His...

  • You talking to me? When dogs are our best friends

    By Merrill Markoe

    November 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    I spend an enormous amount of time hanging out with my dogs. At the moment, I only have two, but at various times in my recent history, I have had as many as six. Technically, I believe, that constitutes a herd and therefore makes me somewhat like Jane Goodall -- but without all...

  • First Person - A Coming Out (of Egypt) Story

    By Jeff Bernhardt

    April 13, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Sixteen years ago this month, I planned to take the Passover message of liberation to heart. I was going to come out of the closet to my sister and my parents and, in doing so, free myself from the bondage of keeping this huge and personal part of me from them. I was going to...

    By J. Keith van Straaten

    In a few weeks I'll turn 33 and, sadly, I realize I'm long past being anything "for my age." I'm no longer cute for my age, talented for my age, a good reader for my age. All qualifications and special considerations have long passed. There's nothing I can get away with now because,...

  • A Manual for the Auntie-to-Be

    It seemed that lots of people -- including total strangers -- had plenty of advice to offer my sister and my brother-in-law before the birth of their first child, an event the entire extended family anticipated for late summer 2003. And it wasn't just a matter of kindly (if...

    By Abby Gilad

    February 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Oh boy, do the Israelites slip up this week. They have just received the Ten Commandments, have heard God speak to them and have vowed to do all that God commands them, even if they do not fully understand why they must. Forty days later, they're dancing around a calf made of melted...

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Mallory Lewis grew up with a very famous sister, but she laughs if you ask about sibling rivalry. "She slept in a shoebox in the closet, I had my own room, it was fine by me."

    But this is no horror story of an evil stepsister. Mallory Lewis' sister is Lamb Chop, the adorable,...
