Music that tastes like chicken, Pesach on the beach, and more
Today in Tablet Magazine, columnist Shalom Auslander, eavesdropping anonymously on a book club, realizes that the writer’s lot is to be relegated to brief discussions in between life’s real joys (like a good piece of chicken). In Norway, the country whose capital gave its name to 1990s dreams of Mideast peace, Asgeir Ueland reports that the once pro-Israeli public has turned against the Jewish state. Music columnist Alexander Gelfand compares Jewish music to the one thing Jews undoubtedly value even more highly: Jewish food. Jennifer Garfinkel brings word of a reemerging trend: many Jews are escaping to lovely resorts in warm places for Passover. Another day, another installment of Steve Stern’s serialized novel The Frozen Rabbi. Another day, another several posts on The Scroll.
