Facing the Firing Squad

Sara Glaz

We all know someone who’s been fired. Maybe it was a spouse, parent, neighbor — even you. How do managers ultimately make the decision to fire an employee, and what can we do if we sense that we’re the next to go?

 

Brick by Brick

Aharon Granot

It might take a bit of getting used to — peyos and beards underneath the hard hats on Israeli building sites. But as more chareidim seek honorable work without the compromises that often come along with a modern office setting, construction has become a logical, if not a novel option. The pay is good, the environment is clean, and they get to build Eretz Yisrael.

 

Crossing the Line

Eytan Kobre

The Open Orthodox movement originally presented itself as a more liberal version of Modern Orthodoxy. But with time, it openly embraced a clear departure from halachah and mesorah, promoting ideas and practices that cannot be called Orthodox.
