Today on Tablet
A Hanukkah memoir, an important professor dies, and more
Today in Tablet Magazine, in honor of Hanukkah (which begins at sundown tonight), Vanessa Davis offers a graphic memoir of her long battle against Hanukkah materialism. Staff Writer Marissa Brostoff eulogizes Professor Yosef Yerushalmi, “an unusually erudite and wide-ranging thinker who made the concerns of Jewish history universally interesting.” Hadara Graubart pounds the pavement to find out what Manhattanites know (and don’t know) about the Jewish Festival of Lights. Liel Leibovitz presents his column on this week’s Hanukkah-appropriate haftorah as a poem. And while we can’t promise more poetry, you never know quite what will appear on The Scroll—so check in throughout the day to find out.
