This is terrible journalism. Nat Lewin’s name is Nathan (not Nathaniel), and that picture is Rabbi S.B. Levin (not Rabbi Cunin).
I’m surprised that Abrahamson put his name on this.
(I didn’t read the article, I just looked at the pictures).

great article!

Every article is going to have a couple glitches.

It’s a great article and profoundly interesting. Written really well. Many things in there I did not know of this story. Author went very in depth.

I am very impressed with this new magazine. It’s like the 4th article that mentions Chabad and this is not a chabad magazine. This article doesn’t just mention Chabad, though, it’s all about Chabad! Kol hakavod Ami! You are really uniting “Ami” – my nation! I bought every copy and I see every week is about belz, satmar, chabad, litvish (like shafran’s articles), and modern orthodox. last week’s was about Genack from OU (a Brisker) – which btw mentioned chabad as well.

A lot of nit-pickers on this site. It is a wonderful piece. If there were some typos, big deal!!!!!

Let’s not knock our friends. Some of Ami’s competitors won’t publish antyhing about Lubavitch.

Just remember, they are a new magazine and just getting off their feet. Give them a break for a few small errors.

In general, this magazine is a breath of fresh air. The content is very intellectual and intriguing. The design is very contemporary. I can’t believe it came out with 3 magazines – the main one, women (and food), and youth. You can tell a lot of work goes into this publication.

“Some of Ami’s competitors won’t publish antyhing about Lubavitch.”

Like who? Mishpacha regularly writes about Lubavitch. HaModia magazine regularly writes about Lubavitch. I don’t know of any English magazines for the frum world that ignores Chabad.

The Yated

Another mistake

Another mistake

It has a picture of Rabbi Berl Levine and in the caption it says that he is “Rabbi Cunin”

Yated is not a competitor of Ami. Yated is a newspaper and as such, Hamodia (and the Jewish Press) is its competition. Ami is a magazine. Its main competition is Mishpacha. In fact, the publishers of Ami, the Frankfurters, were editors for Mishpacha and then left to make their own magazine.
And Yated regularly refers to Chabad because Lifschitz the editor has championed the cause of SM Rubashkin.

Not true, Hamodia featured 3 Tammuz last year, Mishpocho featured Krinsky and now the kinnus. I think that Ami is owned by Mishpocho though.

Ami is a new magazine, not affiliated with mishpacha. The editor in chief and founder is yitzchok frankfurter – who used to be an editor and writer for mishpacha. He’s actually the one that wrote the article on Krinsky.
