The Forverts has a unique new blogger on its website: Riki Rose, a sassy, talented 23-year old woman from a Satmar home.

For this week’s posting, Riki had herself filmed putting on her makeup in the morning. The treat here is watching the way she does it Riki-style: describing it step-by-step in authentic Hasidic Yiddish (subtitled in English for the Yiddish-challenged), yet playfully winking to the audience about the almost subversive nature of sharing this intimate moment on a video that will doubtless be viewed by men.
