Rave Review

Eytan Kobre

Thousands of bochurim have gone through the yeshivah system without tasting the full strength of Torah’s otherworldly sweetness. Many only open a Gemara during seder or at test time; others feel Gemara learning just isn’t for them. How can a bochur learn in a way that when he goes through the Gemara, the Gemara also goes through him? Rabbi Dovid Newman’s students are testimony that he’s found an answer.

 

Shackled for Life

Sarah Buzaglo

The disgrace and humiliation ex-convicts must endure after being released and reintegrated is no secret, but even those who don’t feel shamed by their deeds must cope with the deep psychological effects of incarceration.

Fueling the Feud

Binyamin Rose

Like relatives who fight over a windfall inheritance, Israelis have been locked in a tussle over the newfound wealth from natural gas discoveries. How should the pot be divided between the exploration companies, the government, and the citizens?

 

Cheaper by the Dozens

Riki Goldstein

How much purchasing power do 40,000 families have? Enough to keep staple items rock bottom and enjoy affordable fresh produce. It’s about strength in numbers and the bountiful blessings of unity.
