  • Dating Advice from Bob Marley & Maya Angelou

    By Ilana Angel

    October 17, 2014 | 8:00 am

    I had lunch last week with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time. I missed him and as we sat for lunch I noticed things. All things I’ve noticed before, but to be aware of them all at once was interesting. For example, he isn't a vegetarian like me, but ordered vegetarian. He put...

  • Seeing Yourself in Torah

    By Beit T'shuvah

    March 7, 2014 | 1:08 pm

    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    With the opening of our new space at 8847 Venice Blvd., I have been thinking about how I got to where I am in life from where I was some 26+ years ago. I was locked up for the 2nd time and all I had was a Prayer Book and a Chumash, a book with the entire...

  • Stop Choosing To Live Life in Prison

    By Ilana Angel

    January 16, 2014 | 10:55 pm

    I am a very blessed human being. Some would say I am lucky rather than blessed, but I believe God has a hand in my luck, which makes me blessed. I have a lot of things happening in my life and they have been consuming my time and thoughts. Professionally there are things I cannot...

  • Words With Friends, Twitter & Fear of the Internet

    By Ilana Angel

    September 26, 2013 | 2:08 pm

    I love Words With Friends and I play everyday.  I have multiple games going, currently 19, and my highest scoring word is “WANKERS” for 102 points.  I know some of the people I play with because they are my friends or family.  I also play with a lot of my followers on Facebook and...

  • Dating 101: Loving Kids When Love is Gone

    By Ilana Angel

    August 21, 2013 | 8:50 am

    I have had no contact with my ex-boyfriend for months.  I have spent all that time hopeful we would be able to be friends one day.  I truly thought our relationship was something special and we would be able to get over the hurt and come to a place of friendship.  It has not...

  • The dog days of Summers

    By Mark Eshman

    July 28, 2013 | 11:04 am

    The recent public vetting for the next Fed Chair of Larry Summers, the brilliant former Clinton Treasury Secretary and highly controversial Harvard president is likely to end badly...for him.

    As is the custom in DC, big hairy potential political candidates and appointments are...

  • Dating, Motherhood, Life: Getting Your Groove Back

    By Ilana Angel

    June 7, 2013 | 7:20 am

    Entering the world of dating after such a long time is interesting.  By interesting of course I mean not that interesting.  I am not sure what I am doing, having trouble getting into the rhythm of the dating dance, and frankly making a bit of a fool out of myself.  I am not good at...

  • Dating 101: “Why Are You Single?”

    By Ilana Angel

    May 7, 2013 | 7:41 pm

    I never like it when men ask me why I am single, yet I recently asked a man that very question.  It is an odd question and should never be asked, except when discussing your love life with a therapist. There are only two ways to answer it, and both ways are never going to be good. ...

  • To Date or Not To Date?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 29, 2013 | 12:01 am

    It has been a few weeks since the Englishman decided to not only break up with me, but to no longer be my friend. It has been shocking really, and I cannot stop crying.  Not at the loss of love, which is sad, but at the loss of friendship, which it turns out must not have been...

  • Mother, Son, Dating & a Dancing Queen at the Bus

    By Ilana Angel

    April 23, 2013 | 9:47 am

    When my son was thirteen he came to me and announced he was going to leave home for college and attend in another city.  He respectfully and adorably informed me I had four years to “find a man to replace him”.  If I was not in a relationship when he was off to college, he would go...

  • The Rules of Girlfriend Friendship

    By Ilana Angel

    March 20, 2013 | 8:08 am

    Everyone has their own set of rules when it comes to friendship, myself included.  Those rules can get complicated when you are in love with your best friend, but that is another blog for another day.  When it comes to a girlfriend, I have a very specific stance.  If trust is lost,...

  • Dating and Divorce

    By Ilana Angel

    June 18, 2012 | 11:31 pm

    I have been divorced for 16 years and in that time I have had two relationships I thought would last forever.  One was an actual engagement that ended with my heart broken, and one was with a total douchelord who ripped young.  He was my priority, I was building a career, and every...

  • An Englishman and a Canadian Walk Into a Bar

    By Ilana Angel

    May 1, 2012 | 12:08 am

    I first spoke to my Englishman two months ago.  I thought he was funny and charming, but did not think he was my type.  He lived 35-45 minutes away and while attractive, he was unlike men I usually date. I loved that he’s English however, and agreed to a date because if nothing else...

  • Mel Gibson Needs a Jewish Mother

    By Ilana Angel

    April 12, 2012 | 5:27 pm

    I am a writer, a Jew, a mother and a fan of Mel Gibson.  I may in fact be his only remaining Jewish fan, but to be clear, my adoration of him is as an actor not a human being.  I have written about him a few times and was planning to write about him again today, when I decided it...

  • A Nightmare 16 Years In The Making

    By Ilana Angel

    April 9, 2012 | 10:48 pm

    It has been a very interesting weekend.  By interesting of course I mean stressful, sad, and frightening.  It was Passover, which was wonderful.  It was my birthday, which was wonderful.  It was also the first time my son took the car out on his own, which was wonderful for him, but...

  • What Do You See?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 7, 2012 | 1:07 pm

    It has always been interesting to me how I can look at something and see one thing, and someone else will look at the same thing and see something completely different.  Perception and interpretation are fascinating to me.  I have a very specific worldview.  It is guided by my faith,...

  • Did Online Dating Just Get Safer?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 21, 2012 | 10:52 pm

    Online dating kings Match.com, eharmony.com and Spark Network, which owns and operates JDate, have agreed to start screening for sex offenders, in addition to other “safety precautions”, in order to help their clients. Their goal is to help their consumers guard against sexual...

  • What You Need to Ask Yourself Before Snooping

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 15, 2012 | 10:08 am

    Relationship experts always want to tell you that snooping is one hundred percent without fail invariably wrong. It’s a violation of your partner’s privacy, it breaks trust and if you want a healthy relationship you should never do it. And they’re always so self-righteous about it....

  • Sex, Drugs & Driving:  Surviving the Teenage Years

    By Ilana Angel

    August 17, 2011 | 1:06 pm

    When my son was a baby I could not wait for him to walk, now I wish he would just sit still.  I could not wait for him to talk, now I wish he would be quiet sometimes.  I could not wait for him to drive, and now I find myself praying he will fail his permit test and not be allowed to...

  • Trust

    By Misha Henckel

    December 10, 2010 | 12:09 pm

    When clients start working with me, almost invariably, they come seeking a greater sense of control in their lives. The need for control is a very natural inclination for us. Control brings certainty in an uncertain world and with that comes a measure of security. Or so we hope.

  • It’s not about settlements, stupid, it’s about trust

    March 16, 2010 | 12:55 pm

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Interior Minister Eli Yishai did more to harm U.S.-Israel relations than all of Israel’s detractors around the world ever could when they decided it is more important to build 1,600 houses in East Jerusalem than to have good relations with...

  • Madoff’s Redemption

    By David Suissa

    December 24, 2008 | 2:47 am

    If you're an active member of the Jewish community -- and perhaps even if you're not -- there's almost no way to properly digest the Bernie Madoff scandal. It's like a quadruple shot of cheap vodka that you drink quickly on an empty stomach. You feel disgusted and drunk at the same...
  • Keeping the peace

    By Yehuda Lev

    December 20, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    My wife Rosie, a professor of history, can be a formidable woman, especially when advancing upon some miscreant, tire iron in hand. That was the scene one midnight some years ago when she came across a man beating his wife in the middle of a Sunland street. Slamming on the brakes,...

  • Chametz and matzah symbolize internal slavery struggle

    By Reb Mimi Feigelson

    March 29, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    When my student Adam confronted me recently with this question "In a post-Freudian world, how can we trust the honesty of our intentions?" my response was, "Our conscious and subconscious can be likened to matzah and chametz."

    There are two ways to describe the difference between...

  • Many Factors Enter Into Temple Choice

    By Gaby Friedman

    September 15, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When Mark Firestone was searching for a shul to join, he didn't look for a shul that had a nursery school or Hebrew school attached. Nor did he fret about the services he'd be getting for his membership fee. Instead, he wanted a shul that was quiet.

    "I wanted it to be very quiet, so...

  • Child’s Play

    By Teresa Strasser

    August 4, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Is our culture trying to scam us into having kids?

    This is an epic question and I only have 850 words, so let me start close to home, with my grandma.

    "Listen to me," she said last week over the phone from Reseda. "You have to have kids. You'll never regret it. It's the best thing...

  • Trust Your Partner

    By Rabbi Moshe D. Bryski

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    An international dealer in high-end fabrics once visited with the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson. As an active member of the Chabad community in England, the businessman was quite familiar with how the Rebbe's advice and blessings had impacted many people's lives in...
