Mardi Gras Jieuxs Krewes, Nazis courting Muslims, and more
Today in Tablet Magazine, we celebrate Mardi Gras with Justin Vogt’s look at the Krewe du Jieux and the Krewe du Mishigas, both designed to humorously rectify longstanding official Jewish exclusion from the New Orleans festivities. (A slideshow confirms the craziness.) Book critic Adam Kirsch discusses how the Nazis put an anti-Zionist twist on their anti-Semitic ideology (while downplaying its more explicitly biological elements) in the hopes of making converts, or at least allies, in the Muslim world. This week’s Email of Zion—the missive your uncle just sent you, or is about to—features Pilar Rahola, a non-Jewish Spanish leftist who stands up for Israel. The Scroll is neither leftist nor Spanish nor non-Jewish: discuss.
