Wonder Gal | David Magazine

David May 17 CoverThis month, for David Magazine, I take a look at the new Wonder Woman film starring Gal Godot, as well as a brief history of the character and her creator. Of course, while you’re there, you might want to check out this related article about women in the Israeli army (of which Gadot herself was a member a few years back)

At the same time, there’s some interesting commentary happening at The Mary Sue about the lack of advertising and promotion for this film.

PS: Rasa disagrees with this list, insisting everything should be done if not daily, then at least three times a week.

Games People Play | David Magazine

Many years ago, back when I still lived in Vegas, I would hang out at Denny & Lee Magic shop on Saturday mornings with a bunch of great guys (who also happened to be magicians). One of them was Timm Metivier, who, a year ago, decided to open his own shop – not magic, but one for board games.

Here’s a little story I wrote about it for David. Source: Games People Play | David Magazine

Rabbi Abraham Zacuto and the Astrolabe | David Magazine

15731830_1394489910585063_3400966232016091909_oMy boss, the publisher of David Magazine, has this wonderful way of working. If I happen to be traveling somewhere, he knows something about the history and sends me on an adventure to write a story for an upcoming issue. This time, I was in Portugal, so he sent me in search of Portuguese Jewish history. The result is at the link below. Enjoy!
