Epilogue of the Unfinished Diary
Perl Marton | Wednesday, July 01, 2015
It might be the only surviving wartime journal written by a chassidic Jew for future generations, yet it was hidden away for decades.
Would Chaim Yitzchok Wolgelernter’s diary ever be brought back to life? His son Feivel and grandson Nafti said yes. After two decades of painstaking work, they recaptured not only the horrific images of war, but also the spiritual resilience of Jews who refused to give up hope.
Jew in a China Shop
Aharon Granot, Hong Kong | Wednesday, July 01, 2015
Turning a profit in the Far East is a bit more complicated than just booking a flight to China and picking up some cheap brand-name knockoffs or novelty items to resell. Still, more Jews than ever are staking out their parnassah in this corner of the world, and have discovered a network of like-minded souls to keep their spirits up so far away from home.

Michal Ish Shalom | Wednesday, July 01, 2015
While 90 percent of world trade is transported by sea, the journey between destinations has often been spent in a deep blue vacuum. Ships have learned to evade maritime monitors, and avoid tracking through GPS manipulation. Sometimes they simply “go dark.” Now, an Israeli start-up is lighting up the dark waters.
Life with PCOS
As told to Malkie Schulman Wednesday, July 01, 2015
On the outside, I looked like a typical obese woman — someone who people assumed just couldn’t control herself. Whenever I ventured out to run errands with my toddler, I could feel judgmental eyes darting in my direction. Inside, I was a woman struggling with an incurable disorder and infertility. And while it was true I was overeating, nobody knew about my out-of-whack endocrine system and how it was creating chaos in my body.

Outreach professionals do a fantastic job of bringing people closer to Torah observance. But you don’t have to be a professional to be involved in the kind of “kiruv” that means shortening the distance between Jew and Jew.
Jr. Tales: Freedom to Choose
A true story, as told to Avigail Rabinowitz Wednesday, July 01, 2015
Sent home from school. Me! Sent home from school! I’m not the troublemaker type, have never been a bully - if anything, the bully got sent home for picking on me. Yeah, okay, I have participated in a prank on a sub in my lifetime, but trust me, I felt guilty the whole time!
