Today on Tablet

Pro-Jewish populism, the Biblical American canon, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Tevi Troy, who served as President George W. Bush’s liason to the Jewish community, argues that a rise in American populism could actually buttress Jews’ and Israel’s position among the people. Books critic Adam Kirsch reviews a new book by Robert Alte that traces the King James Bible’s influence on American literature. McGill University Professor Gil Troy examines the seemingly anomalous phenomenon of Canadian campus anti-Zionism. Ethan Friedman provides a special, Counting-of-the-Omer-themed crossword puzzle. The Scroll doesn’t think there is any relation between the two Troys featured today, but doesn’t know for sure.

UPDATE: Guess what? They are brothers!
