    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    I am worried! I am worried about what is happening in Israel. I am worried about what is happening in America. I am worried about what is happening in my work and in my life. I am worried about today and I am worried about tomorrow.

    My truth is that I am...

    July 8, 2014 | 7:32 am

    Last week, I took a six day vacation.  Two days before and two days after, I put in a total of 32 unpaid hours of work which was cut short by a call from my daughter asking me why I am working during my time off.  While away with my family, I ran into people of different walks of...

    By Ilana Angel

    September 23, 2013 | 7:48 am

    On Saturday I did not get out of bed until almost 9 in the evening.  I got up, had a cup of tea, and went straight back to bed.  I didn’t answer my phone except to talk with my son who was with his dad for a couple of days.  I slept, read, prayed, and tried to get a little...

  • Democrats—stop your worrying!

    By Pol Observer

    March 24, 2008 | 3:32 pm


    The current flavor in politics is that Democrats should be extremely worried that their nomination battle is going to doom the party to defeat in the presidential election.  I’d like to make the case that all this worrying is a waste of time and energy.

    Now let’s remember that...

  • Don’t hold your breath on plans for baby

    By Julie M. Brown

    January 18, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Nothing is more exciting than finding out that you're having a baby. The moment I found out I was expecting, I began making grand plans. I read the books, spoke to pregnant friends and questioned all the new mommies I knew. Then I made some big decisions.

    Disposable diapers were...

  • Dating by Committee

    By Carin Davis

    April 13, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    My guy Scott and I talked every night -- until last night. He flew to San Francisco to hear a friend's band play and I never heard from him. I left a message, he left me hanging. I know. He calls me, he calls me not, is nothing new. But it's new to me. I'm too cute to be blown off....

  • Jewish Groups Join Quake Relief Efforts

    By Dan Baron

    December 30, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    For thousands of young Israelis, the sun-drenched archipelagos of Southeast Asia were the perfect destination to forget the rigors of military service.

    But this week, that post-Zionist nirvana became a nightmare. The tsunami that swept India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and the...

  • When Parents Get Preschool Jitters

    By Sharon Schatz Rosenthal

    October 21, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It was the first day of preschool and 2-year-old Jessica didn't know any of other children in her new class at B'nai Tikvah Congregation Nursery School. But the child's anxiety paled in comparison that of her mother.

    "I worried that Jessica would get her feelings hurt or that she...

  • Painted Clowns

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 24, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    I'm drinking at a bar called the Dirty Horse on Hollywood Boulevard. Well, that's not the real name but I never got a look at the sign and that name seemed right.

    It fits the place, with its plastic pitchers of beer, painted clowns on black velvet, bowls of peanuts and the...

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 25, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Let's not tell grandma.

    That's what my mom said after I fractured my elbow in third grade and had to spend the summer in a cast. "Why?" I wondered.

    "Because she'll worry."

    "About what? That I'll break my arm? It's already broken," I remember saying. Today, as I write this, a copy of...
