“Tradition Questions” returns with Zissy Turner’s influential inquiry into Orthodox “Influencers.” What is gained and lost with the cadre of social media mavens, mainly women, to whom large swaths of our community have granted influence?
Our editor, Jeffrey Saks, offers this audio version of his Editor’s Note introducing TRADITION’s special issue on the thought of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt”l. In Saks’ essay, “We Read the Rav to Know We Are Not Alone in Loneliness,” he shares his own personal encounter with the Rav’s writings at a pivotal moment in his religious development.
As we mark the Rav's 30th yahrzeit today (18 Nisan) we also remember his wife, Dr. Tonya Soloveitchik, "A woman of great courage, sublime dignity, total commitment, and uncompromising truthfulness." Read the biographical sketch penned by their daughter, Dr. Tovah Lichtenstein, about her mother's contributions to Jewish education.
As the TRADITION editorial office closes for Passover, we leave you with these highlights from our 60+ years of archived essays. Enjoy this reading over Yom Tov – we hope all our readers will be celebrating a Hag Kasher veSameah in good health and in the company of loved ones.
