When I first decided to write about postpartum depression and anxiety, I found myself writing about how I felt after it passed. After all, I had lived through it, and I wanted other mamas to know…that it — postpartum depression and anxiety, that is — does not last forever. I got better, so they could, too. After working on a few pieces, I received some feedback from an editor, who essentially said: Instead of writing about what came after it, why not write about it, itself? Truthfully, I was scared… >> Read More
While Carrie Bradshaw is known for her obsession with vintage clothing, actress Sarah Jessica Parker takes a keen interest in a different sort of vintage product: mah jongg. Yes, really.
For her…52nd birthday, SJP's friend gifted her a vintage mah jongg set. Parker called this "one of the great birthday gifts I have ever received." https://www.instagram.com/p/Bv0AFA3A3kA/ "I can't explain how/why these gorgeous old tiles bring me so much joy, but oh how they do," the Jewish mom of three wrote in her Instagram caption.

They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and… Jewish?
Well, not quite. But between Morticia Addam’s Yiddish pet name for her husband, Gomez Addams, and to the very Jewish writer (Paul…Rudnick) behind the movies' scripts, it’s safe to say that the Addams family is, at least, Jew-ish. Hulu keeps adding to its vast trove of movies, and — huzzah! — The Addams Family and its sequel, Addams Family Values, are available to stream now. Notably, these hit movies (from 1991 and 1993, respectively) are not… >> Read More
If this Passover parody from the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan had just been cute and well-produced, dayenu! It would have been enough!
But the truth is, this must-see video also happens to be…hilarious and incredibly accurate. "Seder: The Movie," features a diverse and talented cast playing some very familiar Passover seder guests, like your cousins who brought their guitar to the seder, even though no one asked. (They sing "matzah ball" to the tune of Oasis' "Wonderwall," because that song will NEVER get old.) There's also your… >> Read More
