You recently broke up with someone who seemed to put his cell phone above you. But you're also worried — were you right to feel this way or is this just the “new normal”?

Is there such a thing as gender-neutral baby clothes? A young woman has been trying to buy gifts for friends, and everything is either pink or blue, filled with ruffles or images of sporting goods. Are there any alternatives?

Your wedding's coming up, and you just received an email from an old acquaintance asking if anyone can drive her to the wedding. But you didn't invite her and don't want to. How do you handle this?

You're going to a bachelor party and you typically eat and drink a lot less than the other guys. You'll pay your share for the guest of honor, but don't want to subsidize the others. Is there a polite way to say something in advance to avoid any awkwardness when the check arrives?

I am extremely proud to be a part of making the Philadelphia Jewish community the best it can be.

I am a co-founder of Minyan Tikvah (a lay-led prayer group in Center City Philadelphia that meets once a month for traditional egalitarian Shabbat services), a founder of a former matchmaking service for Jewish graduate students, a children’s book reviewer, a former elementary school teacher, a pretty decent cook and a mom to two beautiful children.

I spent years as the director of Hillel of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Graduate Student Network before resigning to spend more time with my family. My husband, Marc, likes to say that I knew more people within a week of moving to Philadelphia than he knew after six years here.

I’m originally from the tiny town of Fredonia, NY, and sometimes I still stare at the skyscrapers and marvel at how many Jews I know.
