The Queen and Kitty Wintrob
As you may know, Kitty has been a regular contributor of personal short stories to CJNonline.com and CJNonline.ca, your Community Jewish News. She’s written about her life as a young girl growing up in the East End of London, of her Mum and Dad and Uncle Yudi, and her WWII war-time experiences. The Royals played an important role in own her life, as they did with millions of other Brits. And this is reflected in the following podcast.
Books Online. A Rabbi At Sea: A Uniquely Spiritual Journey by Rabbi Corinne Copnick
Reviewed by Ralph Wintrob. Corinne Copnick is a wonder. After a lifelong career as an actress, art gallery owner, writer, and editor, in her 70s, she embarked on a remarkable new journey, to become a rabbi. After six years of study, at The Academy of Jewish Learning, in Los Angeles, at the age of 79, in 2015, she was ordained, and began a new career, when most of us are putting the challenges of life to rest. She serves as a Dayan, leads a pluralistic study group, and is a guest rabbi on lengthy cruises.
Books Online. A Review by Ralph Wintrob: Breakdown and Bereavement by Yosef Haim Brenner

Notable Canadian Jewish Musicians: Lorie Wolf. Drummer, Composer, Educator.
Written by David Eisenstadt.
Music Online. Under the Radar Welcome to our Sunday music section called “Notable Canadian Jewish Musicians.”David writes, "Readers of my weekly columns and my book Under the Radar – 30 Notable Canadian Jewish Musicians, continue to share their “I didn’t know that” or “Who knew?” perspectives for almost every piece I write. They (some are musicians) also urge me to cover musicians who are well-known and in other cases, not so well-known.
So, I continue to discover and marvel at the interconnectivity between musicians about whom I profile [...]

Palestine and the Jews. Eighty-six years ago.
Eighty-six years ago, in the year 1936, the British Government deemed it beneficial that a Royal Commission should be established immediately, to ascertain the underlying causes of what they called ‘disturbances,’ today commonly known as a rebellion, which broke out in Palestine in the middle of April 1936.
