May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.

How the Holocaust Never Happened in Rumania

The virus of antisemitism is alive and well in Eastern Europe, and so is the denial of the Holocaust.

Joy To The World, We’re Jewish

30 Av 5772 – August 17, 2012

I realized that maybe the problem isn’t one article but that Judaism is not being taught correctly to my generation.

The Evolution Of American Orthodoxy: An Interview with Yeshiva University Librarian...

22 Tammuz 5772 – July 11, 2012
Books. Some people love them; others claim they can do without them. For Zalman Alpert, they are essentially his life.

Over the years, he has contributed articles to such works as Encyclopedia of Hasidim; Jewish American History and Culture: An Encyclopedia; Encyclopedia of Jewish American Popular Culture; Midstream; and The Jewish Press.
