Praise for the Blog

“Hirhurim provides a valuable service to the Orthodox community, examining issues large and small, in Halacha and Hashkafa, as well as many of the social concerns affecting the Jewish world. Torah sources from across the spectrum are used and quoted with respect, facilitating needed discourse on a higher level.”
—Rabbi Asher Bush, Chairman of the Va’ad Halacha of the Rabbinical Council of America and Rav of Cong. Ahavas Yisrael of Wesley Hills

“Rabbi Gil Student’s Hirhurim blog offers an arresting mix of news and commentary suffused with sharp intelligence and penetrating insight – qualities not always evident on other blogs that fly an Orthodox banner. Anyone whose Judaism is not defined by a near-primitive tribalism bordering on outright racism or, on the other extreme, a slavish devotion to politically correct liberalism at the expense of Torah, will find in Hirhurim an oasis of enlightened Orthodoxy.”
—Jason Maoz, Senior Editor, The Jewish Press
