Hearing the left: Responding to a New York Times Op-Ed, Noah Efron writes that the Israeli left hasn’t been silenced by a right-wing cabal but has just failed to make its case.  (Haaretz)

Sand and citrus: In Halutza, a barren area wedged between the borders of Gaza and Egypt, Jewish settlers evicted from Gaza have built new lives as etrog farmers. (Times of Israel)

Roving rabbis: In the rural West, where Jewish communities have struggled to take shape, roving rabbis travel in pairs to help reconnect isolated Jews with their faith. (NPR)
