Dr. Mom

Barbara Bensoussan

They’re frum mothers, dealing with children, Shabbos guests, and community obligations. They’re doctors, dealing with life-and-death decisions, and grueling hours. How do they balance both?

 

The Heat Is On

Libi Astaire

Along the way, people figured out how to keep their homes at least somewhat warm, employing simple methods that we too can use in a stubbornly drafty room or to lower the heating bill

 

Tempo Story: Made to Order

Esty Heller

“We get together for one night out, and you guys are like not even here. If you prefer to text all night, why did you even come?”

 

Grab the Reins: Chapter 33

Shoshana Schwartz

“When something really does bother you but you don’t let yourself feel it, that’s a problem. That’s what causes resentments”

 

Map the Starlight: Chapter 26

Leah Gebber

Facets: Chapter 17

Esther Kurtz

“I always thought I’d marry someone like me, and we’d be a power couple. We were supposed to be the new movers and shakers”

 

Musings: Not an Adult

Bracha Stein

Miriam Eliwatt
