A milestone anniversary has been achieved in the realm of creative writing as the prestigious literary journal, Jewishfiction.net, is celebrating its tenth anniversary. It is the only English language journal in the world currently devoted exclusively to publishing Jewish fiction, available online at no charge.

Over 400 works of fiction have been published, by such eminent writers as Elie Wiesel, Chava Rosenfarb,  Aharon Appelfeld, A.B. Yehoshua, Savyon Liebrecht, and Aharon Megged, Canadian authors such as George Jonas and Morley Torgov, and many excellent, lesser known writers. These works were either written in English or translated into English from 15 languages, with readers in over 140 countries.

The current edition is now available and readers are welcome to register on the website to gain access to all 25 issues.

Jewishfiction.net welcomes the work of both well known, highly established writers as well as those just starting out in the field. All the streams of Judaism are represented, including secular and religious, old and young, female and male, straight and gay, right wing and left wing, economically advantaged and disadvantaged, and those affiliated with the Jewish community vs those who were alienated from it.

Rabbi Taub Among Scholars Presenting At Orthodox Union Online Event  

Thousands of participants from around the world are expected to participate in Orthodox Union’s (OU) virtual Torah Yerushalayim that brings a blue-ribbon list of rabbinic scholars, educators and Jewish communal leaders, including Rabbi Baruch Taub of Thornhill next week. Taub is the founding rabbi 

and Rabbi Emeritus of the Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto Congregation (BAYT), the largest Orthodox congregation in Canada. The program will feature world-renowned scholars and educators for three days of learning online from September 22 through September 24.and is open to everyone across the globe.

“While the pandemic has limited our ability to deliver in-person learning, it has provoked our creativity in a way that actually enables us to reach more people. We’re thrilled that Jews from around the world will be able to join together to devote time for introspection and growth during the Aseret Yemei Teshuva between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur,” said Orthodox Union Executive Vice President Rabbi Moshe Hauer.

“With the tremendous success of last year’s Torah Yerushalayim in spiritually preparing thousands of Jews in Israel for Yom Kippur, we believe this year’s event will reach even more people and further the impact and inspiration in a safe manner for Jews from across Israel and the entire world,” added OU Israel Executive Director Rabbi Avi Berman.

The program is offered to the community free of charge, with the event being dedicated in loving memory of David & Norma Fund Z”L by their children and with the assistance of the Jerusalem Municipality. For more information or to register, please visit: https://tickchak.co.il/OU

“Both living Survivors and those who have deceased will be featured in a unique exhibit that our community can share for many generations to come,” wrote the CJF, explaining the exhibit “will show the faces of those who witnessed unimaginable horrors and miraculously survived the atrocities of the Shoah. This exhibit will give our community an opportunity to see the faces of those whose stories must be heard and never forgotten.”

The deadline to participate is October 1, 2020. If you or your family member is interested in participating or would like more information, please email the Holocaust Education and Human Rights department.

Thank you for choosing TheJ.Ca as your source for Canadian Jewish News.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.

Monthly support is a great way to help us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to support Jewish Journalism.

We thank you for your ongoing support.

Happy reading!
