My Grandfather the Zionist

A new feature for NYMag about my ancestors and the course of American Jewry

Hello, all! Just popping in to your inbox to say I’ve written a new article for New York Magazine that was just published today. It’s a biographical sketch of my late grandfather, Robert A. Riesman, Sr., looking in particular at his activism on behalf of Israel and what it teaches us about the course of American Jewry in the last century. You can read the feature here:
