Writing History, Creating Destiny

Shira Yehudit Djilimand

This week marks the shloshim of Rebbetzin Chana Rotenberg a”h, a remarkable woman whose goal was to transmit the mesorah and Torah of the previous generation. This mission shaped her every deed, whether hand-copying her husband’s magnum opus, discussing chinuch issues with Rav Hutner ztz”l, reaching out to families in Cincinnati, or going blueberry-picking with her children.

Short Story: The Top of the Stairs

Shoshana Schwartz

Lunchtime in the Schwartz household. Five children return from five different schools at five different times. They reject my food eight different ways, jostle each other with their ten elbows, and vie for my singular attention. Two return to school — and will come home just in time for supper. Therefore, if lunch isn’t on the table at exactly one o’clock, the words “smooth day” temporarily disappear from our family vocabulary (temporarily being anywhere between one day and two years).
