There she is, folks — that’s Molly Goldberg, a woman with a place in every heart and a finger in every pie.

If you are like me (a week ago) you have NO idea who Molly Goldberg/Gertrude Berg is. I was listening to NPR on Friday and heard a very interesting story. It was about this Jewish woman in the 1920’s who created a sitcom, The Goldbergs. In fact, she created the genre of sitcom, to an extent. It started as a radio show and then was adapted to television. It went off the air in the 1950’s. Sadly, most of the episodes were destroyed but there are a few historical records of the......

Mayim Balik on What Not To Wear

I have to say that I was incredibly disappointed in this episode of What Not To Wear.What they neglected to show is that Mayim is an Orthodox Jewish woman and she following the laws of tznius (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tznius). They even had her study partner on the show to talk about it (http://www.jewinthecity.com/a/2009/05/mayim-bialik-to-guest-star-on-a-very-special-jew-in-the-city.html) but they cut it. They criticize the length of her skirts and encourage her to hem her skirts shorter and wear sleeveless tops but that may not be what she feels is appropriate. Why can’t we find modest and attractive clothing?......

New Fav Blog (other than my dad’s of course)

Do the words “Jon” “and” “Kate” make you want to hang yourself? Have you dreamt of putting gum in Kate’s hair just so she has to cut those ridiculous things she calls bangs off?

Then this blog is for you… I think it is HILARIOUS. Things I Want To......

A great shul guide

I got this in an email from Parasha Partners today. It is a really helpful guide for the Saturday morning services. CAN YOU STAND IT? by RABBI REUVEN DRUCKER Dear Rabbi: I occasionally go to synagogue on Shabbat, but feel very uncomfortable — I never know when to stand or sit. I expect that I will eventually figure it out, but it would be helpful if there were some general guidelines you can provide. Thanks,Janet N. Dear Janet: To stand or to sit – that is the question that has engaged the......

So… I am a total quote girl. I love them, I am touched by them, and I horde them… But I am simplifying my life so I am going to put them all in this blog post and take them off my Facebook, etc. I’ll keep adding so you keep checking. 🙂 “You have to keep moving forward. As long as you’re holding on to where you were yesterday, you’re standing still.” -The Rebbe “Faith, in its most sublime function, provides man with a level of courage that he could not otherwise......

Sherlock Holmes Trailer (w/ Robert Downey Jr?!?!)

Okay folks… watch this before you read my blog (but keep reading… please!) Okay… So if you have ever read any of my blogs, you know I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. I like him because he is flawed. He isn’t all brawn and no brains. He loves to engage is mental gymnastics and can spend hours sitting in a chair thinking with his eyes closed before taking action. And yes, I know what you are going to say … he’s a boxer, he’s hyper, he has ADD sometimes and yes,......
