In Transition? Confused? What’s Next?

The vast majority of my career coaching involves clients who contact me while they’re feeling perplexed about their personal circumstances. About 70 percent of them have been out of work for some time, and the rest only recently became jobless. Some of them are desperate to make a change because of a difficult boss or too much pressure on


Happy Not-Valentine’s Day

Many millions and millions of years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and men and women lived in caves (hence cavemen and cavewomen), life was different. Brave cavemen would go out to battle with beasts to bring home food and clothing for their woman. If they found a fruit or a flower they knew it was special and they knew the


The Long Road Ahead (Literally)

A few weeks ago, I met up with a friend of mine—he’s only a month younger than me—at the Garden State Plaza mall for a movie and to hang out. My mom drove me there, and he was going to drive me home. We started the trek from Paramus to Fair Lawn trying to figure out how to get out of the GSP’s ornate but massive parking lot system,

If Only He Would Change! If Only She Would Change!

How many of us believe “If only my spouse would change, our marriage would improve”?

As a marriage therapist, I can tell you that this belief is quite common. Many couples come through my door hoping that I will hear both of their “sides” and come to the conclusion that they are in the right and

You might have seen his name in the Jewish Link or even on Amazon’s website. Meish Goldish typically is the go-to guy for teachers who invite the Brooklyn writer to their classrooms to teach, talk and sometimes sing to the children.

Tax Tips: Rubber Chickens and TurboTax

We have really become a do-it-yourself society. As technology advances (and more videos are posted on YouTube), we have become increasingly confident in our own ability to do things. Whether it’s fixing our home appliances, cementing the front steps, or changing a tire, we can now do anything we want with no experience necessary. Or can


Politics & Parsha: Mishpatim 5775: Easier Done Than Said

The Jewish people are notoriously quarrelsome; in the famous words of Moses: “stiff-necked.” This was seen as a positive quality by the Almighty. After all, such a stubborn people would not easily be swayed by cultish fads or newer, more popular religious orders.

Yet for all their griping, all their


Mishpatim: The Presidential Pardon

Sid Wasserman walked up to Rabbi Morgenstern during the kiddush after davening on Shabbat morning, a gefilte fish ball on a toothpick in one hand and a small plastic shot glass of Scotch in the other. The rabbi had just finished reciting kiddush over a tall, cool silver becher of grape juice just moments earlier, but judging from Sid’s


Royal Persian Grill: Not Just for Royals

There are two things I know about Persian royalty: Their meals lasted for weeks at a time, and they would feel right at home at the Royal Persian Grill. From Hodu to Kush, you would be hard-pressed to find better Beef Bamya than right here in Teaneck. It’s an oddity. The epicurean elitists have shuttered most specialty
