Yonoson Rosenblum

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Bret Stephens talks with Mishpacha about the seminal influences on his life, his wunderkind appointment as editor in chief of the Jerusalem Post at 28, the art and craft of punditry, Donald Trump and the conservative crack-up, the future of Israel’s relationships with America, and his book, America in Retreat.

Hadas Afik

But what will this year’s Seder be like in their private bondage as orphans, after the recent wave of terror robbed them of the most precious people in their lives and forced them to navigate the grief of bereavement and their place in a fractured family? Sarah, Moriah, Tiferet, Tzofia, Maor, Akiva, and Tzipi share the anguish of their new reality and their hope for redemption.

 

In the Crucible of Egypt

C. S. Teitelbaum

The British Museum’s collection of Egyptian artifacts is second only to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. With this magnificent display as his background, Rabbi Arye Forta tells the story of our ancestors who lived in Mitzrayim.
