Waking up with Claire on weekend mornings was a sweet pleasure. We would cuddle like spoons in her bed. I would caress her heavy, round breasts, and she would purr in a contented way, slowly opening her large, dark deep eyes. I knew I could run my hands along her milky white thighs and quickly […]

If I lift my eyes away from David’s bandaged face, away from the tube going into his nose and the wires attached to the monitors and the bag dripping fluids into his arm I can see out the window to the Mediterranean Sea. Palm trees frame the view of bright blue ocean and deep, clear […]

If you ask Allie, things started going downhill after what everyone now refers to as ‘the scandal.’ But things weren’t going well for her even before the incident. She had trouble fitting in at school and out of school for that matter. Yes, she participated in activities at school, such as the orchestra, where she […]

Note: This story addresses an abusive relationship and portrays sex in a way that may not be comfortable for some readers She pleaded with her eyes, don’t do this to me, don’t make me do this. Why did he get like this sometimes? He could be so nice, but then this. “Do it. Now,” he […]

Note: This story contains adult language and addresses issues such as sex in a way that may not be appropriate for all readers. Dear Diary, Mordechai took me into Shushan today. Not the Jewish part, that’s so crummy, but the real part where everybody else goes. He is so cool, you’d never guess he was […]

“Do you accept Jesus?” exhorted the leader or minister or whatever title he went by–Arnie never really bothered to keep it straight. As if on cue, someone in the large crowd would just jump up and yell “I believe.” A wave of shouts invariably followed: Yeah brother. I do. Go for it. Awright. Do it… […]

Jo leaned back against the fallen log. Nathan edged over closer to her. He was a nice guy but really shy. She wondered if he would finally get up the nerve to hold her hand or put his arm around her. Although she had sort of known him for years, she only had been attracted […]

Becky still seethed with anger as she drifted into Harvard Square, a seemingly irresistible magnet for young people. Becky, with long dark hair, eyes wide and deep, and wearing tight jeans and platform sandals, fit right in with the throngs of kids who crowded the area along with the usual tourists. Hours before, Becky stormed […]

“No way! I’m not going to wear that… that… that stupid rag!” shouted Tamar. “Well, I’m certainly not going to buy you this thing. Just look at you,” insisted her mom. “What’s wrong with it? All the kids where stuff like this,” Tamar argued. She was trying on a tight, slinky, jet-black dress with a […]

“Mom lets me stay up late!” David screamed. “That’s her problem. Turn off that TV and go to your room and get into bed. It is too late for a seven-year old boy to be up. You have Sunday school tomorrow,” countered his father, Mark, trying to keep from losing his cool altogether. “You can’t […]

Ezra had never learned to pray. Oh, he learned lots of Jewish prayers all right. He learned prayers as songs with his mom in the tot services at their synagogue. He learned to lead prayers in front of other children at Junior Congregation. And, of course, he had a bar mitzvah and led half the […]

The day Miriam’s father, Noah Levine, showed up unexpectedly as a chaperone at a school dance she wanted to die. He wore his kippah, a little prayer cap, on his head and had his tzitzis, the special fringes some Jews wear, hanging out from under his shirt. She knew how weird he appeared to all […]

Once, at a crowded Simchat Torah celebration, a rabbi took the Torah and danced out of the synagogue and into the street. The huge crowd followed the rabbi and the Torah, dancing right behind them like a giant, zigzagging snake, up and down the street. The street was packed bumper to bumper with cars, which […]

For the sin which we have committed before Thee with wanton looks; for the sin which we have committed before Thee with haughty eyes; for the sin–oh, gimme me a break, thought Steve. The Yom Kippur Kol Nidre service wasn’t even an hour old and Steve already felt he had had enough. Steve looked around […]

Dahlia and Ben quietly drifted to the edge of the field. Ben slipped his arm around her waist as they dropped down into the soft grass. They could see the campfire glowing and sparking in the middle of the field and hear the laughter, guitar playing, and singing of the other campers and counselors, but […]
