“Rabbi Shafran’s consistently insightful analysis of contemporary events and challenging issues invariably reflects a profound appreciation for Torah-true Judaism at the highest level. His superb language skills and considerable secular knowledge, together with proven bona fides as a legitimate Torah scholar, emerge gracefully in every writing.”
– Rabbi Meyer H. May, executive director,
Simon Wiesenthal Center
“A lot of journalism is ephemeral — here today and gone tomorrow — but Rabbi Shafran’s words endure. And that is because he writes about things that matter in a compelling and entertaining way. He provides a clear window into how the Orthodox world sees a variety of issues, from science to politics to contemporary culture, and he is not afraid to ask tough questions. Most of all, Rabbi Shafran is a great storyteller who gently guides the reader along. We are all the richer for his insights and guidance.”
– Professor Ari L. Goldman, Columbia University, Author,
Being Jewish and The Search for God at Harvard
