Big ball of string, a very dairy Shavuot, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Joshua J. Friedman profiles Ben Schachter, whose art is mainly inspried by eruv, the string that marks the permissible walking boundaries on Shabbat. Shavuot is coming up, and Shavuot means dairy. Liel Leibovitz explains the milk connection, while Katie Robbins comes up with the cheese in her quest for the perfect blintz (recipe included!). This week’s haftorah has all to do with numbers, and Liel Leibovitz responds by recounting his life—pun intended—in number form. The Scroll always felt that Numbers was the dark horse book of the Torah.
