In 1906, the Forward started A Bintel Brief, Yiddish for “A Bundle of Letters.” Now our classic Jewish advice column is a podcast. Our co-hosts, two very different Jewish mothers, dish on the dilemmas of Jewish-American life, identity, culture and politics.

The Forward thanks Edward Blank, whose generous support makes the podcast possible.
