• The Traveling Jewish Theatre has stopped wandering. It’s now The Jewish Theatre, San Francisco. [S.F. Chronicle]
• A nuanced Jewish take on suicide, prompted by a 102-year-old philanthropist who apparently jumped off a bridge. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
• A new book uses the story of a Jewish track and field star from the early 20th century—when the sport was “the equivalent to NASCAR today”—to address questions of ethnicity. [Columbus Dispatch]

• New phones that can be operated using one’s teeth will allow Orthodox medical personnel to make calls on the Sabbath, thus retroactively removing a major plot point from The Chosen. (Or was it My Name Is Asher Lev?) [JPost]
• Britain’s chief rabbi thinks the world economy could benefit from a little of that Shabbat spirit: there’s “nothing wrong with a market run economy, but … six days out of seven is quite enough.” [Algemeiner]
• The class of 1959 from the Centro Israelita de Cuba—Havana’s only Jewish high school—held its 50th reunion this weekend. In Miami Beach, of course. [Miami Herald]
