  • Ted Cruz, as in lose

    By Douglas Bloomfield

    September 24, 2013 | 9:56 am

    What's playing out in Washington this week is a classic example of that old political shibboleth, "that may be what I said but that's not what I meant." Republicans are piously assuring us they have no desire to shut down the government only to go marching off toward the cliff. ...

  • For Matisyahu, no beard, no entry

    January 29, 2013 | 1:09 pm

    Since Matisyahu shaved his beard last year, the former Chasidic reggae musician has been suffering all sorts of blowback. Along with losing his facial hair, sidelocks and the love of some Jewish fans, apparently he’s lost his VIP status in the eyes of club bouncers, too.

    At the...

  • The Bachelorette Recap – Hometown Dates

    By Ilana Angel

    July 3, 2012 | 6:36 pm

    We are back in the States, which is both good and bad.  Good because it means we are close to the end, and bad because it means we have to sit through a lot of recapping.  Emily needs to reflect on all her travels and the four men she has left.  I’m not big on reality television...

    It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

    Because Sen. Orrin Hatch couldn’t eke out 60 percent of the votes at the Utah Republican Party’s convention this past weekend, he’ll face a primary challenge from former state senator Dan Liljenquist.

  • Niceness, by the Book

    By Susan Freudenheim

    March 30, 2011 | 10:59 am

    Right around the time the curtain was dropping on the opening night of Broadway’s new “South Park”-inspired musical, “The Book of Mormon,” I was in Salt Lake City, Utah, having dinner with two top-level elders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, plus a few...

  • 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...

  • Utah’s Lee tours Israel

    December 20, 2010 | 1:52 pm

    Mike Lee, Utah’s senator-elect and among the most prominent of Tea Party conservatives, met in Israel with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Lee, who ousted moderate Republicans in primaries in the recent election, toured Israel last week under the auspices of the American Israel...

    BERKELEY(JTA)—There were about two dozen people on Rabbi Mike Comins’ Torah Trek in Tilden Park here.

    Most members and friends of Chochmat HaLev, a Jewish Renewal-style community, had hiked a lot. Many had prayed or meditated. Some had done both together.

    But none, the hikers...

  • Environmental Spirituality

    If you are looking for a place where you are just as likely to go ocean kayaking and rock climbing as you are to daven Shacharit (morning prayers) and learn brachot (blessings), then the Shalom Nature Center (SNC) is probably the place for you.

    Since its inception in 1998, SNC has...

  • Accidental Death in Utah

    By Ruth Stroud

    September 17, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    Orel in Hebrew means God's light. Orel Gigi was only 4 1/2 years old when she died in a car accident on Aug. 2, but to her parents and all who knew her, she was like her name -- a ray of divine light. "Her smile and outstretched arm towards anybody was magic, and a heart could not...
  • The Meaning of Religious Freedom in Utah

    July 2, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    Much of the school was outraged. All spring, Bauchman was subjected to ridicule and abuse from students -- and, allegedly, from the music teacher. Graduation day became an impromptu anti-Bauchman protest. Parents and students joined hands to sing the...
