Gary Shteyngart(Guardian)

• A Jerusalem district judge ruled today that the arrest of five female worshipers earlier this month at the Women of the Wall’s monthly Rosh Hodesh services was wrongful. If not reversed, the decision could change how the police deals with the group. [ToI]

• Shteyngart, Shteyngart, Shteyngart. Gary Shteyngart’s got a new book. A memoir. It will be released in January 2014, so let’s start arguing about it now. [NYT]

• Security will be tight as hundreds of Jewish pilgrims visit an ancient synagogue in Tunisia this week. The building, in the village of Hara Seghira, reportedly dates back to 586 B.C. [JTA]

• Benjamin Ivry has a great piece about François Jacob, the Nobel Prize-winning Frenchman, who fought against the Nazis in World War II and passed away last week. [Forward]

• Emma Morris prepares you for spring (and the astrological new year) with Jewcy horoscopes. Apparently, I need to take a deep breath. How did the stars know? [Jewcy]
