Yisroel Besser

Yisroel Besser has been with Mishpacha almost since its inception: he has written several memorable profiles, some of which have become best-selling books. Along with interviewing revered Rebbes and roshei yeshiva, Jewish leaders and prominent politicians — including the President of the United States and Prime Minister of Canada — Besser has found the extraordinary story-lines behind ordinary facades, building a devoted cadre of international readers.
