Remember to check out our Essay and Reflection pages for the first publications from our guest contributors, Bryan Rosenthal and Evan Sieradzki. Next week will include a new essay piece from our latest guest contributor as well as a reflection piece by Co-Founder Peter J. Marzalik on his interactions with Russian-speaking Jews during a recent study abroad to Israel. We appreciate the outpouring of support since the launch and encourage you to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter via the widgets at the bottom of the website. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
