Bracha has been writing and editing ever since she discovered that she could parlay her lifelong love of reading and language into a career. (Also, it was literally the only thing anyone would pay her to do.) Before joining Mishpacha, Bracha worked as a writer and editor for a variety of academic clients, with a special focus on building literacy and education. With a penchant for pedantry, a passion for prose, and an unfortunate tendency to over-alliterate, Bracha enjoys harnessing the power of language to create worlds and forge connections.
Bracha lives in Jerusalem with her husband and children. She thinks puns should be outlawed.
Chani has been working in illustration for 8 years. She currently lives in Lakewood, NJ, with her husband and children, who–as paradigms of perfection–never serve as any inspiration for the Kichels’ antics.
