The Rayze And Raisel Hadassah Project

Special To The Jewish Week
11/17/2009
The other day, after an especially grueling week on call, I read something about a traditional healer somewhere in Africa who was chronically cranky and sick because her healing technique involved taking on so much of her patients’ ailments. I had never met that lady, but I knew just how she felt, because I too felt like I had just given birth to seven babies, undergone three C-sections and was barely recovered from a life-threatening post-partum hemorrhage.

‘Choofing’ It At The Simcha

Special To The Jewish Week
11/17/2009
It started as a joke. After a tap show in early 2008, Shelby Kaufman and some other dancers were out celebrating. When they counted the number of Jewish tappers among their ranks, they started referring to themselves as “choofers” a play on “hoofer,” a common term for the style of dance Bill “Bojangles” Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers made famous, and more contemporary icons like Gregory Hines and Savion Glover carried into subsequent generations.

For The Love Of Israeli Wines

Special To The Jewish Week
11/17/2009
One red wine was  compared to a really great passionate kiss. Another was praised as earthy, like wet leaves, like the earth itself. Participants in the Israeli Wine Lovers Club are encouraged to share their reactions to the wines they taste, to speak about aromas, flavors, oakiness, acidity, balance and, mostly, how all of the above strikes their palettes.

‘Curating Lives’

Special To The Jewish Week
11/17/2009
Ilana Segal loves stories and the process of uncovering them, which is why she worked as a curator for many years, examining and unearthing the tales behind objects for New York’s Central Synagogue, the library at the Jewish Theological Seminary and North Suburban Synagogue Beth El in Chicago. “I love pulling out the stories of lives, people and places,” she said. “I’m driven by the rich stories that lay hidden in objects, and doing the right research to expand those stories.”

Wedding Planners To The Rescue

Israel Correspondent

Jerusalem — The bride and groom, in their 20s, ordered a wedding cake adorned with their image, but unbeknownst to them it arrived on their wedding day featuring an image of an elderly couple with the words, “Mazal tov Bubbe and Zeide on your 60th Wedding Anniversary.” Had their wedding planner, Shani Falik-Roth, not caught the mistake in time, the guests would have been slicing into grandma and grandpa.

Ellen Braunstein likes to joke that she met her husband, Mark, on an Internet dating site back when “people worried they’d meet ax murderers online. We were pioneers. Back then, no one was doing it.”
