A House on Shaky Ground

Malkie Schulman

It’s one thing to put up with socks on the floor or other annoying habits. It’s an entirely different story when one’s husband starts slipping in his relationship with Hashem. Can a woman stay married to a man who no longer keeps Torah as she does?

Turning Tides

As told to Leah Gebber

Dressed in silk or lace and wearing a large hat decorated with peacock feathers, my mother used to lean over my bed and kiss me goodnight. Then, she’d be off, again, accompanying my father to the many social evenings required by his business. Old Mrs. Cooper would stay with me, but although she dozed off on the couch downstairs, I was never able to sleep. I would lie in bed and read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, or whatever wonderland I was immersed in. And I would wait.
