New Article on the 10 Commandments

Over the holiday of Shavuot, I gave a talk discussing the 10 Commandments, or Aseret ha-Dibrot. One of the topics I discussed was the meaning of the term Aseret ha-Dibrot.

Those thoughts became this new article published today at The Lehrhaus, which builds on existing scholarship (particularly an article by Professor Meir Gruber) to create a literary picture of the Aseret ha-Dibrot:

New Story

My latest short story, “A Future Far Too Bright,” is now available to read for free at Clarkesworld Magazine.  Check it out here:

It’s about a boy and his dad–and how a time machine affects their relationship.

I had the idea for the story several years ago, but it took me a long time to get around to writing it. I’m so pleased that I was able to sell it to Clarkesworld.
