There’s no time like the High Holidays to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going. It’s that time of the year when the less observant of us come out from the woodwork to attend our local place of worship, or at the very least, a Yom Kippur breakfast (did the gum count…?).
It’s also that time when we’re forced (again) to face the question of how Jewish we actually are. We’ve certainly broken a few rules.

As the weather turns from sweltering hot to a little chilly, and with the High Holidays just upon us, it’s time to deal with a question that might arise: Is it gauche to date on Rosh Hashanah?
There are a lot of attractive, intelligent, classy women out there who’d love to meet the right man. Sadly, they may have already gone out with him, but wouldn’t have given him a second chance because of mistakes he made on the first date.
Autumn is on the horizon, and if you’re like me, you’re hotly anticipating the fall premieres of some of your favorite shows.

Most of us think us think of apples as an “eat out of hand snack,” a delicious pie filling, or as a mostly-pastry kitchen ingredient. However, apples are actually one of the most versatile ingredients being used in savory and pastry applications around the world.
Dig through a purse or wallet and you might find (among the receipts and other notes) a fortune from a fortune cookie offering ancient wisdom and insight that you believed was meant specifically for you. Drawing from my private practice and the workshops and classes I’ve taught, I’ve compiled my own “fortunes,” that I call love notes. I’ve shared these with clients and students as notes designed to help singles meet their goal of finding their soul mate. As you read these love notes, I hope you will find a couple that speak directly to you.
Aries, transiting Venus (love and money) moved out of Cancer and into Leo (a fellow fire sign) and lucky for you it’s in your solar 5th house of fun and romance!

Here’s the shpiel, September is not just about back to school for you, it’s about getting back to everything 5th house related. In short – have FUN! This is a perfect time to bump up your JDating®, play, laugh, and express yourself however you want to! Ummm, within reason of course…there are other people in the room too you know…
Hey there, JDaters! It seems like summer just rolled in, and yet it comes to an unofficial close with Labor Day this weekend. Put away your white shoes and sunblock, fall’s crashing onto the scene. While August delivered us a couple of bombs, there was nothing quite on the level of a Gigli, a Pluto Nash, or some of the true duds of Augusts past. September promises us some strange bedfellows: sequels, remakes, re-releases, and even a few original concepts. Am I the only one who finds it ironic that original concepts are now original concepts in Hollywood?
They say opposites attract for good reason, but every four years couples that sit on different ends of the political spectrum find themselves wishing they had done what their mother suggested and found a nice, likeminded Republican/Democrat to settle down with instead.
