Sundown: Sometimes ‘Sorry’ Just Ain’t Enough

An obvious question, poetic justice, and following Fonda

Print Email

• One-time conman Sam Antar, former CFO of Crazy Eddie electronics stores and Eddie’s cousin, spends his time repenting via public speaking engagements, but is under no illusion that it will get him off the karmic hook: “I’m going downstairs for a long time before I go upstairs.” [Jewish Week]
New Voices asks: is the Kindle good for the Jews? The answer: well, using it is pretty much the equivalent of reading a book—so, yeah. [NV]
• Once, a poet bemoaned the lack of a monument at Babi Yar, site of the massacre of 33,771 Jews during World War II. Now, in post-Soviet Ukraine, there is one; soon, there won’t be. Taking its place: a resort hotel to accommodate “soccer tourism.” [Haaretz]
• In a cleverly-titled editorial—“Jane Erred”—the New Jersey Jewish News gives props to Jane Fonda for doing teshuva after protesting against the Tel Aviv spotlight at the Toronto International Film Fest by signing a letter that the paper says “wasn’t much different from the Goldstone Report.” [NJJN]
• Speaking of which, the man himself defends his report against accusations of “disproportionate attention to the conduct of Israel,” which he says was “unavoidable considering the many incidents the mission was obliged to investigate in Gaza.” [JPost]
