Mishpacha was founded in 1987 on a dream.
Aiming to facilitate the exchange of ideas and values between the varying streams within the Orthodox Jewish world, among them the Hassidic, Yeshivish, Sephardic, and Modern Orthodox communities, publisher Eli Paley and editor Rabbi Moshe Grylak launched a phenomenon: Mishpacha magazine.
The brand’s first English edition, published in 2004 due to popular request, took the Jewish communities of North America, Europe, South Africa and Australia by storm with world-class journalism, fiction, and op-eds that set the agenda from Shabbos tables to board rooms. Everyone wanted to be a part of the conversation. Mishpacha’s reach further expanded in 2006 with Family First, a full-color weekly magazine connecting tens of thousands of Jewish women and girls around the world.
Today some 250,000+ readers on every continent across the globe make Mishpacha magazines a part of their lives. The conversation continues.
