Being the chief editor of Aish.com is a great privilege... and responsibility. And I'm not just referring to spelling mistakes, which I know we have too many. I'm entrusted by you to develop and curate the highest quality, most relevant and meaningful content the conveys Jewish wisdom and insight.

I believe, thank God, for 20 years we've been extremely successful. Millions of people have been inspired by Aish.com and have taken their next steps in their Jewish journey. For some that means learning more about their heritage, for others it means lighting Shabbat candles, going to shul, or observing Jewish holidays. Some have even moved their entire family to Israel... all because of their interactions on Aish.com.

A few days ago we hosted our first Tisha B'Av program. It featured Aish senior lecturer Rabbi Motty Berger and students from Aish Jerusalem live from the roof of Aish HaTorah, and recorded classes with Aish.com teachers Rabbi Blech, Rav Gav, Sara Yoheved Rigler, Slovie Jungreis Wolff and more – the program was a huge success.

Conceived and directed by Aish.com's own Executive Director, Rabbi Jack Kalla, over 25,000 people accessed the program.

The world is such a confusing place and Covid-19 is making it more confusing. Social distancing, masks, Zoom learning – we're living in a new reality.

The world needs Aish.com's innovation and insights more than ever. And we need your support more than ever to continue providing it.

Until Monday night every donation you make to our $720,000 Corona Emergency Campaign will be matched. We must reach this goal to continue providing you with the quality Jewish content you need and expect.


Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith,
Editor in chief, Aish.com
