It is Time for Arab Accountability

by Loolwa Khazzoom • November 1, 2015 • in Jewish Multicultural Corner
I am amazed, yet not surprised, by the backlash against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after his recent remarks about Hajj Amin al-Husayni. While al-Husayni may not have given Hitler the initial idea to exterminate Jews, and while he may not have been personally responsible for Hitler’s choice of actions, the fact remains that al-Husayni was...

Oh the Fickle Requirements of Working at Jewish Institutions

by Loolwa Khazzoom • March 23, 2015 • in Jewish Multicultural Corner
When I was somewhere around 27 years old, I applied for the second-in-command position – I think the title was “director” – at a swanky Jewish Community Center, one of the nicest I had ever seen. I was competing against a group of highly-credentialed folk – rabbis and PhDs – in other words, people who had gone through and received the blessings...

Reactivation of Dental Trauma

by Loolwa Khazzoom • October 31, 2014 • in Wellness
My recent visit to a new dentist, Dr. Lee, exemplified both the right and wrong ways to practice medicine. My visit began by filling out the standard intake form – identifying what medical conditions I have and have not experienced. Next the hygienist, Monica – a young woman with gentle energy and big brown eyes – ushered me into the dental chair and...

Pondering Silence in the Face of Street Harassment

by Loolwa Khazzoom • October 26, 2014 • in Keeping It Raw
I just came back from a walk around my neighborhood. As I was walking down one street, a woman and man came out of a house. It was late and dark, so I wanted to make sure they were not startled and that they knew I was friendly. So I said hello with a big smile. Not only did neither of them say hello in response, but the man looked at my chest and down my...

Walgreen’s: Really?

by Loolwa Khazzoom • October 22, 2014 • in Keeping It Raw
My mom needed some over-the-counter meds urgently. My mom is disabled, and all her usual suspects for helping out were unavailable, for one reason or another, so she had no way to get to the local pharmacy, which is Walgreen’s. I asked a friend to pick up the meds for my mom, and he agreed. The catch was that he said he didn’t have the money to pay for...

A New Way of Writing

by Loolwa Khazzoom • September 26, 2014 • in Keeping It Raw
I have not been blogging for a long time now. I have done some sporadic blogging, but ever since Fall 2011, I haven’t been blogging consistently, which I had been doing previously. I always felt I was writing to Gd/dess/the Universe, throwing my thoughts and ideas out into the world with love. The problem is that from time to time, I would get back judgmental,...

The Squirrel and the Crow

by Loolwa Khazzoom • February 3, 2014 • in Random Shit
Awesome story from this morning, right outside my window: So there’s this squirrel being all agro (aggressive) on a crow. The squirrel goes running up to the crow; the crow jumps in the air and flaps around its wings; the squirrel returns to chasing nuts; and the crow lands in the same spot, body taut, looking in the direction of the squirrel. Then...

Interrupt Objectification

by Loolwa Khazzoom • January 7, 2014 • in Keeping It Raw
One of the reasons I love not shaving is that it interrupts objectification. Men will start with the up-down, assessment-of-inventory look, then get to my hairy legs and suddenly go from a look of entitlement to one of utter confusion, shock, or panic – impelling most to abruptly look away, clueless about how to interact with a female body that does...

Cut the Cheese: Why this Dairy Glutton Suddenly Went Hard-Core Vegan

by Loolwa Khazzoom • December 30, 2013 • in Wellness
This article was first published on the Dancing with Pain® blog, on April 17, 2011. Throughout my life, I was a dairy glutton. My idea of heaven was eating a fresh loaf of bread with a big hunk of cheese, then washing it down with a hot mocha latte. I voraciously consumed New York pizza, Greek salad, Italian gelato, and some of the more esoteric fare —...

You Are the Healer You Are Seeking

by Loolwa Khazzoom • December 30, 2013 • in Wellness
This article was first published on the Dancing with Pain® blog, on October 6, 2013. I have had my fair share of trauma and health challenges, and life certainly has not played out the way I envisioned as a child. While illness and injury have put a damper on things, however, they also have, in their weird little way, provided opportunities for me to grow,...
