Tickle my Funny Bone

C. Rosenberg

Life is a serious business. Which is why we all need a good dose of laughter from time to time. Frum comediennes serve up humor even when they’re not feeling particularly funny, and offer wholesome comedy — but never mockery. How do they manage to pull this off?

A Touch of Trepidation

Bracha Stein

You could tell a lot about someone from the way they knocked, Dahlia mused. Such a simple action, but one that lent great insight into the psyche. Take this knocker, for example. This was clearly the knock of someone who had suffered greatly. It was the knock of someone who had known grief and heartbreak, but also joy and serenity. It was the knock of someone who had known the anguish of strife but had the wisdom borne of experience.
