Until the Last Yid

Aryeh Ehrlich

It doesn’t matter if they’ve never heard of rebbes or Chassidus. In any corner of the world where there are Jews, the Kalover Rebbe will find them. For 35 years, the Rebbe’s chassidim in Williamsburg have been waiting for him to stay put, but the Rebbe has a bigger mission: If there is a Jew anywhere who needs chizuk, he’ll pack his bags and fly off to give it.

 

Keeping Matters in Proportion

Binyamin Rose

Yuli Edelstein views the challenges of Jewish life from the same prism, whether as Speaker of the Knesset or as a refusenik languishing in a Soviet labor camp. In this exclusive interview, Edelstein said if there’s one lesson life has taught him, it’s that no matter where he is, a Jew always stands up for his principles.

 

Best Seat in the House

Refoel Pride

Never Lose Hope

Shalvi Weissman, M.Sc.

When Rabbi Yitzchak Weingott was told he had a month to live, he knew he had two choices: descend into hopeless gloom, or believe that a miracle could happen. Twenty years and a clean bill of health later, he’s made a mission of spreading comfort and promise to patients facing the dreaded disease.
