Featured Articles - Home, Online-only articles

Jeffrey Saks, editor of TRADITION, has announced the addition of two new members of the journal’s Editorial Committee.

Mali Brofsky is a senior faculty member, director of the Shana Bet program, and in-house social worker at Michlelet Mevaseret Yerushalayim. She lectures and has held a number of academic and administrative positions at various institutions in Jerusalem. Mali holds an M.A. in Jewish Philosophy from Bernard Revel Graduate School and an MSW from Wurzweiler School of Social Work, and runs a clinical practice in Gush Etzion. She has published and lectured extensively on Jewish thought, on issues of emotional health, and on the interaction between the two fields. Most recently, Mali served as Guest Editor of TRADITION’s symposium on “Jewish Thought in the Contemporary World: Educational Challenges and Goals” (Fall 2020). 

“For years, I have considered TRADITION to be one the central forums of Modern Orthodoxy discourse, where Jewish thought and ideas are explicated and explored with thoughtfulness and sophistication, and where dialogue of the highest level is conducted with seriousness and civility,” said Brofsky. “It is an honor and privilege to become a more active part of this enterprise, which I view as tremendously valuable—in our times more than ever.”

Sarah Rudolph is a writer and editor, Jewish educator, and director of TorahTutors.org. Sarah’s essays have been published in a variety of print and digital media, including TRADITION, Times of Israel, Kveller, Jewish Action, OU Life, Lehrhaus, TorahMusings, and more, and she serves as editor-at-large for Deracheha. Sarah lives in Ohio with her husband and four children, but is privileged to learn online with students all over the world through WebYeshiva.org. “I’m delighted to join the editorial board of TRADITION, a journal I’ve known for many years as the ‘gold standard’ in exploring matters of Jewish thought. It is a profound honor to join the journal’s leadership and contribute to its important work alongside role models, teachers, and colleagues,” remarked Rudolph.

As members of the Editorial Committee, Brofsky and Rudolph help steer the direction of TRADITION, its quarterly print journal and digital platform TraditionOnline.org. Subscribers can look forward to reading more of their scholarship in our pages. They will also assist the editor in TRADITION’s ongoing work of reaching out to new readers and authors, and recruiting younger writers, and especially female scholars, to contribute their work to the journal.

TRADITION is the quarterly Journal of Orthodox Jewish Thought published since 1958 by the Rabbinical Council of America.

    I am so proud of you, Jeffrey Saks, for adding these impressive women to the editorial staff of Tradition. The last edition, the symposium is outstanding. Have not finished it yet. Sarah was my student many years ago in Jr. High in St. Louis! I am incredibly proud of her achievements
