Plus a video testimonial from parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall

Marjorie Ingall on Jewish Body Week from Tablet Magazine on Vimeo.

To kick off Jewish Body Week, here’s Tablet Magazine parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall talking about her Jewish body. Also today, Jonathan Rosen, the general editor of the Nextbook Press Jewish Encounters book series, argues that Jews are as much people of the body as people of the book. Ingall writes about the guilt felt by Jewish mothers unable to breastfeed. Books columnist Josh Lambert looks at new books that deal with the Jewish body. And, in a from-the-archives greatest hit, we’re reprinting Peter Hyman’s essay on his son’s bris and his internal debate on what to do with the foreskin. We’ll have more considerations of the Jewish body throughout the week—and a new video testimonial each day. Plus, as always, we’ll have more on The Scroll throughout the day.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
