Aharon Granot

The Rebbe’s Tomorrow

Yisroel Besser

On the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s 20th yahrtzeit this Gimmel Tammuz, his chassidim and admirers the world over will stop for a moment to reflect on the Rebbe’s enormous accomplishments — and then they’ll get back to work, energized by the Rebbe’s words, inspired by his example, and motivated by his vision, even two decades later.

Sara Glaz

Bottled Up

Michal Ish Shalom

A British youth tosses a bottle with a note into the sea, to be picked up by an Israeli soldier on the Sinai beach. After four decades, they finally meet face to face. A marine biologist discovers that he’s become part of an experiment that started in the ocean 60 years before. A Japanese fisherman finds a desperate message in a bottle from a shipwrecked crew — 70 years too late. Messages in bottles are still spanning continents and igniting imaginations.
