"Women like women's things": Chasidic Women's Magazines

The name mentioned most often in the November issue was not Obama but Hashem. This is Binah, "the weekly magazine for the Jewish woman."
Read my article in Nextbook. There's even one reader comment already, about a zillion percent more than I usually get here (what's 1 divided by 0?)! Sure, the comment doesn't make much sense (something to do with the "liberal-arts outlook," whatever that is supposed to mean), but that's the price of free speech. 


  1. I love the Binah! especially the recipes. but i do sometimes laugh at it....

  2. I read you all the time. But for a long time your comments were disabled. Don't be discouraged...:)

    "All unremarkable except that two-thirds of the women on the advisory board are titled “Reb.” (for Rebbetzin), and the name mentioned most often in this November’s issue was not “Obama” but 'Hashem.'”

    Why is this remarkable? Did the November issues of Elle, Mademoiselle, Cosmo, etc., write about the election? I think heimishe women are no different than their non-Jewish counterparts.

  4. Hate to break it to you, Anonymous, but heimishe women are different. As for the women's mags, frisky.com, "a daily romp on the sexy side" (hey
    , you asked), wrote that the "elections saturated...even the November editions of the lady mags." The magic of Google!
