Early Riser

Binyamin Rose, Miami Beach

No matter how busy he is, no matter how many directions he’s being pulled in or how many people are clamoring for his attention, when Rav Yochanan Zweig speaks with you, you have his undivided interest. As the human connection to Torah for so many types of Jews in Miami Beach, the Rosh Yeshivah says he has a sacred obligation to each one — to help all of them become the best Jews they can be.

 

A Time to Reap

Yael Ehrenpreis Meyer

He was the man who created the thickest tomatoes for Heinz ketchup, the greenest peas for Green Giant.

Miri Gross
