Issue 36

Welcome to Issue 36 – our “double chai” issue! Here you'll find 13 brilliant stories originally written in 5 languages: Polish, Russian, Yiddish, Hebrew, and English. And in honour of the upcoming holiday, we bring you 5 Pesach stories: “
This Night of Nights,” “The Seder,” “Who Passed Whom,” “Our Finest,” and “Flight.” 

As we approach the “Festival of Freedom” this year, it is impossible not to be thinking about the hostages still captive in Gaza. We pray that soon they will be reunited with their families and this war will come to an end.
