  • In Between in Aurora

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    July 25, 2012 | 8:00 am

    My father, alav hahalom, died shortly before Passover in 2011. When we learn that a close relative has died, but the person has not yet been buried, we are called an onen, or “someone in between.” Mourning doesn’t officially start until our loved one is buried, so we are in...

  • ‘That’s My Boy’ reviews:  They could have been worse

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    June 17, 2012 | 9:05 pm

    Adam Sandler’s raunch-fest “That’s My Boy” hit theaters in time for Father’s Day, starring Jewish icons Sandler and Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live”) as the reconciling father and son. And not unexpectedly, critics aren’t exactly embracing the film, while...

  • What is time anyway?

    By Samira Asemanfar

    November 11, 2011 | 8:12 am

    One of the first responses I get when I tell people that I am now blogging for JewishJournal.com is “how do you have so much time?” I always just giggle instead of providing an answer. One reason that I may have more time is because I am strong believer in moving forward to the next...

  • Top ten lists: Time, Barnes & Noble and Amazon

    By Book Buzz

    December 14, 2008 | 4:05 pm

    It’s almost holiday season and books still make great gifts. Here are a couple top ten lists to help with your selection.

    Perhaps the most popular list, released by TIME, offers fiction and non-fiction books. Interestingly enough the magazine only lists five fiction and five...

  • Staying empathetic is a challenge during the race for college

    September 3, 2008 | 10:56 pm

    I believe myself to be a compassionate person. I say this, of course, with an immense amount of supporting evidence. You know in Westerns, when the cowboys battle it out on the frontier, riding their horses? Well, when a man gets shot and both he and his horse tumble to the ground, I...
  • All the time in the world

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    July 21, 2008 | 9:56 pm

    I have heard that if you want something done, give it to a busy person. I have no idea why that is a good idea. I guess it means a busy person will always find a way to squeeze in one more thing, while a lazy person wouldn’t, otherwise they wouldn’t be lazy.

    I can attest to...

  • Like ‘sands through the hourglass’ . . .

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    February 16, 2008 | 10:04 pm


    Welcome to the Jewlyweds blog. Having navigated through Tales of a Jewish Bride-to-Be, there is a whole new world that needs a map, a compass and a bottle of Arrowhead. Luckily, this time I get to chart a new path with my husband.

    As we start this journey, I have to confess...

  • Full circle

    By Rabbi Steven Weil

    October 12, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    My daughter, the animal lover, has a father who isn't. A hamster is the biggest pet I've gotten talked into so far. It lives in her room, and basically I wouldn't even know it was there except for one thing -- it's nocturnal.
     
    All night long I could hear Ruby the hamster running in...
  • Scheduled Relaxation

    By JoAnneh Nagler

    June 15, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Last Sunday afternoon I was standing in my shower scrubbing my tile. It suddenly occurred to me -- in the midst of Ajax and scouring pads -- that the man who was ruling my fantasies was on a plane coming back from a sure-it's-professional junket in Las Vegas.

    Something was wrong...

  • Seven-Year Switch

    By Rabbi Haim Ovadia

    May 18, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    We want to have everything, and we want it better, bigger and more spectacular than everyone else. Gas-guzzlers roam the roads, and our oil dependency forces us to redefine values and ideals, like democracy and freedom. In Las Vegas and Palm Springs, we must have lusciously green...

  • Disengagement Dashes, Spurs Dreams

    By Amos Oz

    May 18, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The evacuation of Gaza Strip settlements is not just a struggle over the question of the future of the territories. At the very core, the pullout was the first big battle on the question of religion and state.

    They [religious settlers opposed to the withdrawal] have their own dream....

  • Singles - Operation: Picky

    By Amy Klein

    April 20, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Did I mention I have ESP?

    I know what people think. I know what people think when I tell my latest dating story.

    I know because some of my "friends" -- or people who call themselves such just for the occasion to chastise me -- say, with rising frustration in their quietly expelled...

  • Bonding Over Torah

    By Jane Ulman

    January 12, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    On a recent Sunday morning, a group of bat mitzvah-age girls and their mothers sit together reading and discussing the story of Chana, who, wretched and weeping because she is childless, prays to God for a son.

    "Pay particular attention to the verses describing how Chana prayed,"...

  • Joyce Rabinowitz: A Type Like No Other

    By Jane Ulman

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

     

    Look at Joyce Rabinowitz's computer keyboard and you will see six blank keys in the middle row. They are actually the letters SDF and JKL, but the identifying marks have been worn off from use.

    In fact, those are only keys Rabinowitz uses, with the exception of the space...

  • Unhappy New Year!

    By Mark Miller

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    OK, I'll be absolutely honest -- I spent this past New Year's Eve alone. Sure, I could have salvaged the situation with a round of frantic last-minute calling, but I never got around to it because I had to go and get into a fight. Fortunately, I was the only one who got hurt. You...

  • Winning the Great Sponge Cake Battle

    By Judy Bart Kancigor

    April 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    It’s that time again. With Pesach here, it’s time for my annual wrestling match with my nemesis, the dreaded sponge cake.

    Aunt Estelle was famous for her mile-high sponge cakes. Years ago she sent me her recipe, outlining every step in exquisite detail. Yet every time I try it,...
  • Principal for a Day, Lesson for a Lifetime

    By Sarah Price Brown

    March 24, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    This Wednesday dawns as another tough, typical grind for the principal of the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies (SOCES). There's the 7:15 a.m. arrival and the 10 p.m. departure. Then there's the picket line set up by half the teaching staff. And later, the little problem of...

  • The Good, the Bad and the Confusing

    By Ed Shevick

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I am a senior citizen. I'm 82, look 65 and feel like 40. It is a very confusing time of life. People assume that you are over the hill. You know that you are still vital and have the ability to contribute to society.

    At the age of 50, I classified myself as lower-middle age. As the...

    December 2, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    In the play "2 Across," a man and a woman -- who have nothing in common but their crossword puzzles -- are on a 4:15 a.m. train leaving San Francisco International Airport for the East Bay. She takes crosswords (and life) very seriously; he treats everything like a game. By the...

  • No Rush

    By Seth Menachem

    October 21, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Lately it seems as if everyone I know is interested in me getting married. In fact, the person pressuring me the least is my girlfriend,

    Carrie. She's still working on her independence, having recently moved out of her parents' house for the first time.

    Like many women, Carrie...

  • Smarty Pants

    By Abby Gilad

    October 14, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Albert Einstein was a very smart man -- probably one of smartest people of all time. In 1905, when he was 26, he had a "miracle year," in which he proved the existence and sizes of molecules, explained light as both particles and waves and created the Special Theory of Relativity....

  • Cleaning House

    By Tom Teicholz

    September 30, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Several months after my mother died, I had to clean out her apartment in New York. The apartment had sold, the co-op board had approved the new buyers, the closing was imminent. The apartment had to be delivered empty.

    This was the apartment I had grown up in, where my parents had...

  • Pico’s Familiar Slice

    By Julie G Fax

    August 5, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The balabus is back.

    Howard Weiss, who opened Los Angeles's first kosher pizza shop in the mid 1970s, has reopened his famed Kosher Nostra, and he's looking to reclaim the glory days of over-sized slices and relentless puns that made the first Kosher Nostra a community institution.

  • 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...

  • Sleep, Interrupted

    By Tom Teicholz

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I remember, as a child, trying in vain to stay up to see the ball fall on New Year's Eve. In later years, high school brought concerts that went past midnight and college introduced all-nighters of the studying and partying kind. In the midnight hour came inspiration and revelation...

  • C’mon, a Bat Mitzvah Is, Like, So Uncool

    By Marlene Heller

    March 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Everything was going wrong. First, her best friend moved. Not just to another town, she moved to another state.

    Also, she was starting a new school this year. Middle school was scary to think about, though she would never admit it out loud. She was too cool for that.

    And now her...
