Dear Friend, The ubiquity of video cameras has changed the way we see crime—literally. A criminal could once have committed a crime with the (un)reasonable expectation to deny it later. Today, with cellphones in almost every pocket—and security cameras at...
Dear Friend, If you grew up in the 1990s, you may share some of my coming-of-age firsts: first time speaking on a cell phone (a brick-like contraption with a long antenna), first email account (remember AOL?), first time purchasing an airline ticket onlin...
Dear Friend, He inspired me. He grew up in Israel to parents who both came of age on secular kibbutzim. To him, Rosh Hashanah had always been a day to go to the beach. Then, with the help of a Chabad rabbi, he rediscovered Judaism and began learning more ...

Two tiny stone seals have been recovered in Jerusalem. One of the 2,500-year-old seals belonged to a woman.
Dear Friend, Like many others, I woke up on Monday to the stark news of the untimely passing of our very own Rabbi Yehoshua B. Gordon, Chabad.org Torah teacher par excellence (read a special letter about him here). Though I did not work with him as closel...
Dear Friend, Early Tuesday morning, Twitter went down. Shortly after service was restored, #twitterdown became a trending topic. We’ve grown so accustomed to communicating with anyone, anywhere, anytime, that a temporary outage can feel like a major crisi...
