We Just Keep Growing!


Our staff has really taken to heart the commandment to be fruitful and multiply.

Just a few weeks ago our managing editor gave birth to a son. And we are now beyond pleased to welcome to the world the son of our senior editor, Shoshanna Lockshin.

Ezra Menachem (did I get the spelling right, Shosh?), for your parents’ sake, I hope you spend the next few months as quiet, curled up, and cute as you are in this photo.

Can’t wait to meet you!
