  • Fed Chief Janet Yellen’s gender bigger deal than faith

    October 16, 2013 | 11:10 am

    Janet Yellen is soft-spoken, tough, methodological, flexible — and Jewish.

    President Obama’s announcement last week that he had tapped Yellen, 67, to succeed Ben Bernanke as chair of the Federal Reserve made news in part because she would be the first woman in the top spot.

  • Why Huma Abedin stands by her man

    July 25, 2013 | 10:10 am

    Many New Yorkers, as the New York Times notes, are “baffled by the loyalty shown by Huma Abedin” to her transgressing spouse, Anthony Weiner.  I suspect, however, that for many first generation immigrants such as myself, especially those of us with Asian and South Asian roots, she...

  • A questionable woman in the synagogue?

    June 11, 2013 | 2:16 pm

    Ah!  How authors wax poetic about the allure of a vulnerable woman!  How tempting it is for that mensch in shining armor to whisk that vulnerable waif off her delicate feet and carry her away on his white horse, how tempting to rescue her from unnamed perils, and especially from...

  • I am the woman who used to annoy me

    September 5, 2012 | 12:33 pm

    To all the elderly women who have tried my patience over the years: Retribution is yours for the asking, for as you have known all along, I am becoming you. I’ve stood behind you in the supermarket line, tapping my foot and pretending to be absorbed in the details of Jennifer...

  • Reaching Climax: The Women’s Rights Movement

    By Maya Paley

    July 23, 2012 | 5:26 pm

    Women in the US are stuck on an incessant seesaw. We bounce up then we sink down. While we have taken tremendous steps, particularly on issues of voting rights, reproductive rights, education, and professional achievement, I sometimes worry that we already reached a climactic point...

  • Shifting Expectations: Women and Work

    By Rabba Sara Hurwitz

    July 13, 2012 | 10:41 am

    I love eating challah, but until recently, I refused to be a “challah baker.”  The term irrationally evoked an image of a woman chained to her kitchen,  slaving away for the sake of others, with no desire or choice to impact the world.  That is not who I am.  I am an Orthodox...

  • Boys and their animal instincts

    By Julia Bendis

    September 5, 2011 | 5:25 pm

    What is it about children that makes them want to jump all over people, me in particular?  I am sitting on the couch, minding my own business when out of nowhere my six-year-old son decides to pounce on me.  Not only pounce like a cheetah, or a lion or pick your own animal but start...

  • Oh Jared Leto, how little I knew about your band…

    By Julia Bendis

    April 11, 2011 | 2:07 pm

    What started out as a surprise of a lifetime, quickly turned into a XXX porn show for many children and one particular fifth-grader.

    I like to think that I am a pretty fun parent, but when my husband and I surprised our eleven-year-old with tickets to Thirty Seconds to Mars concert,...

  • Ladies of the View and Hasselbeck…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 19, 2011 | 1:31 pm

    Is it just me or is the show, ‘The View’ going down the hill?  The last couple of years it seems that the show has gotten a lot more hostile than in the past…  They have great guests on the show, and their topics are pretty relevant but its the hosts that bug me the most.  Not all of...

  • My Interview with the Department of Homeland Security!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 1, 2011 | 10:45 am

    Years ago, I had applied for a position with the Department of Homeland Security.  Why would I apply for a position with the Homeland Security?  Who knows…  Remember my post about my ADD, and pins in my ass?  Well, that’s why.  This was right after 9/11, and they just formed this new...

    By Julia Bendis

    December 27, 2010 | 12:09 pm

    Being a wife, a mother and a woman in general, you find yourself at a grocery store quite a bit.  I also find myself quite a bit pissed off when I am there.  I really thought that America was all about business, and customer service, and giving really good customer service.  I guess...

  • Candidate Adeena

    By David Suissa

    July 24, 2008 | 1:24 am

    If you want to really annoy Adeena Bleich, just ask her what it feels like to be a young Orthodox woman running for City Council. I know, because when we sat down recently for lunch at Shiloh's, the first thing I asked her is what it felt like to be a young Orthodox woman running...
  • What to expect when you’re not sure you’re done expecting

    July 9, 2008 | 10:57 pm

    At 30, my friend Lisa had two toddlers, a workaholic husband and an interrupted career as a pediatrician. Exhausted from being a full-time mom, she looked forward to the time when her kids would go to school and she could resume her career, or as she used to say, "Regain my sanity...
  • Diversity lost

    By Gina Nahai

    May 1, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Forgive me for going on about this. I keep promising myself I'll stop being outraged, turn off the radio and stop reading the papers. But if you'll permit me one more question here:
    Whatever happened to the Democrats being the party of tolerance and diversity?
    These days, it's...
  • I am not a fixer-upper!

    By  Orit Arfa

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Do I have a sign on my forehead that says, "Fix me up"? I hope not, because then I'd really have a hard time meeting guys.

    But every so often I get a phone call from a friend or relative, or my mom's friend or co-worker, and even from people I meet on the street: "Orit, I want to...

    By Pamela Witt

    December 14, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    I want to share with you an email I wrote to Chancellor Elect Eisen as well as Rabbi Joel Roth on the JTS board to support allowing gays to marry and become rabbis:

    Dear Mr. Eisen,

    I am a 46-year-old woman born and raised in Los Angeles. I am writing to ask that the Conservative...

  • New commentary looks at Torah from woman’s point of view

    By Jacob Berkman

    October 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    How many people know that when the Torah describes Abraham mourning the death of Sarah, it's the only time in the entire text that a man mourns a woman? Or that Adam and Eve were equal partners in crime? Or that women most likely were instrumental in constructing the Temple?

    Too few....

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 29, 2006 | 8:00 pm
