Ray Rivlin

Mr. Malcolm Sender, a very sprightly 80-year-old, despite his two artificial knees, was born in Leeds, a Yorkshire town in the north of England. He still lives there.

It also leaves unprotected hands in danger of being stung by nettles and pricked by thorns.

 

Backstage at BMG

Surela

Beth Medrash Govoha, Lakewood, New Jersey, is one of the world’s largest yeshivos. The thunderous kol Torah reverberates day and night, creating a ruach that inspires and energizes. As thousands of men dedicate themselves to Hashem’s precious Torah, a valiant group of noble individuals dedicate themselves to make this yeshivah a most conducive, beautiful makom Torah.

Benny Bear and the Lost Purse

Yael Mermelstein

Hey. I’m Benny Bear. I think you’ve met my brother Nonny and my sister Ahuva. I’m the best Bear of all. I don’t mean to brag. I guess I’m the best in certain ways and Nonny and Ahuva have their areas too. But I’m definitely the biggest Bear in this family, other than Gavriel Farber. But Gavriel is a Farber and not a Bear, so even though sometimes he feels like a part of our family, fact is he’s not.
