Menace on the Playground

C. B. Gavant

Women of the Book

Libi Astaire

The non-Jewish publishing world may be in turmoil due to the economic downturn and the revolution caused by ebooks and ereaders, but we are in a Golden Age of English-language Torah publishing. Yet this “Golden Age” wouldn’t be possible without the contribution of the dozens of women who work in the frum publishing world. These women aren’t just involved with publishing novels and cookbooks; they’ve also had a hand in the making of many of the seforim that are found in our homes and yeshivah libraries.

 

Short Story: The Eye of the Storm

Orli Katz

The night of the blizzard I made a lot of mistakes. It was a Motzaei Shabbos, following two days of being cooped up with malcontent children and nothing but dreary winter out my window. I was due for some major retail therapy. So, after tucking in my precious little ones, I shrugged on my coat, stuffed my feet into boots and headed out the door, tiny sedan key swinging merrily from my pocket.
