My latest piece for David!
This 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.

My 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!

My second piece this month is about people who are changing the world. Gives me a little bit of hope. Not as much as the kids in this picture, but still….
