Sundown: Seven More Jewish Children

Obama-love, hot (and not) vacation spots, and rich Ukrainians

Print Email

• Caryl Churchill’s controversial play Seven Jewish Children went up in Israel for the first time last night, directed by a Palestinian currently under house arrest for protesting a right-wing government appointee. If the American reaction is any indication, the Israeli press should prepare the floodgates. [Haaretz]
• Suggestions from The Baltimore Jewish Times for must-see Jewish vacation attractions include the obvious—the Memorial and Museum at Auschwitz-Birkenau—and the not-so-obvious—a 200-year-old synagogue in the Virgin Islands. Such a tough choice.[BJT]
• Jordan Farmar of the L.A. Lakers will appear at a fundraiser for the Citizens’ Empowerment Center in Israel, to be held at “a beautiful private residence in Beverly Hills.” (Is there any other kind?) [CECI]
• Three of the four billionaires in the Ukraine are Jewish, apparently. This potentially celebratory mark of success has, naturally, led to “anxiety within the country’s Jewish community.” [JTA]
