Happy Father’s Day!
Moment would like to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, and brothers!
We hope you enjoy the inspirations, stories, memoirs and amusing tales of fathers throughout history. We encourage you to share them with anyone you think would enjoy them!
All of these famous historical Jewish fathers —despite their defects—made headway in providing their children with a better world than the one they inherited.
Behold, the Jewish father: an oft-forgotten figure, generally second fiddle to the much-discussed Jewish mother. Though pop culture tends to be focused on the matriarchs of the Jewish family, a few notable fathers have broken through. Read here for a few of our favorites.
The father I wrote about in my early work is not the father I would write about ten years later. And the father I would write about today certainly would be different in the light of his death on April 28, 1998. As the past shapes the present, so the present shapes the past.
