Join the Consent Revolution!

When I was in seventh grade, my friends had it all: From “Juicy” across the butt to “So Low” just above the buttcrack, their clothing was what I yearned to wear. My mom had a strict no-words-on-the-butt policy and was viciously opposed to any and all suggestive messaging. …

How to Spend Your Jewish Christmas Day

Well, here it is again: Christmas. Lights are a-twinkling in every store window, Salvation Army volunteers are ringing bells everywhere, and green and red drape every available space in the country. As Jews who weren’t raised with a tree in our living room, there’s more than a bit of FOMO this …

Is Intermarriage So Terrible?

Like many other particularly un-athletic Jewish youth, I spent many Sundays playing Little League baseball at my local JCC. There, we were tricked by our parents into thinking that Jews were good at sports, and coerced into getting hit by diamond hard fly balls, tripping over bases, and generally …

If 1/3 of You Gave $5 This Week…

Actually, if fewer than 1/3 of the people who visit this website this week gave $5, we would raise $5,000 in a week. Or, if fewer than half of this week’s visitors gave just $3. The point is that we’re a lean and scrappy organization with a budget under $100,000. That’s all it …

5th Graders+Chanukah Songs=Adorable

I’m told it’s because I never went to public school and fully appreciated diversity (read: the stubbornness of Jews in insisting that the holiday season include some mention of Chanukah), but I have to admit I went wild when I saw a group of 5th grade students from Staten Island …
