Women front and center at this celebration of Jewish American Heritage

Jewish women were definitely front and center at the first ever White House reception marking Jewish American Heritage month.  Appropriately so, since it was a woman – Representative Deborah Wasserman Schultz – who spearheaded the Congressional campaign to establish Jewish American Heritage month. It was another woman – Marcia  Zerivitz, who [...]

I have never actually seen a Lady Gaga video, but I saw the Glee episode about it. It seems that all I know about the whole Gaga craze is from the Jewish Lady Gaga videos that have been popping up on Youtube. Below is the latest attempt; within 2 days they have received nearly [...]

Taking the “Rihanna” approach to Jewish Orthodox sexuality

I was a little surprised to see how much frank talk about sex was featured in The Sisterhood this week. As a teenager, I am used to people around me talking about sex a lot-in real life, in movies, in songs, in basically every medium except in Jewish blogs. But that is [...]

Jewish feminism, then and now

Yesterday I celebrated Mother’s Day in an unusual way. Instead of the traditional “early bird” dinner with my extended family, I traveled to New York City for a reunion of Jewish feminist matriarchs: the founders of Ezrat Nashim.

Thinking Jewishly

A few years back, I spent two or three hours in the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle. It wasn’t enough. The story told there cannot help fill one with awe.

If I Were a Jewish Boy

This week my friend and I were discussing the pros and cons of being a guy vs being a lady. You’ve probably had this debate at some point (or several points) in your life. I think it’s fairly clear that men generally have it easier, but not necessarily better. I mean, hi, [...]

Frum Jewish Porn Titles

I know many of you think that frum and porn in the same sentence are impossible, but hear me out. It’s only natural for people to enjoy pornographic videos of their own kind. I am not condoning porn, it’s assur and I would never encourage anyone to watch porn. I have never [...]

You’re Not Jewish. Deal With It.

When I lived in Ireland and I would tell people I was Jewish they invariably got all excited and were like, “The Irish are the Jews of Europe,” which presumably was them trying to say, “Hey, we Irish people identify with the way the world has been pooping all over the Jews [...]

Stuff Jewish People Like

So I was under the influence last Saturday night when I had an epiphany, I’ve never had an “under the influence” related epiphany, mostly because I rarely become under any influence, besides that of a very good speaker. So I’m hanging with my Mexican Jew friend and we are talking about [...]
