• The Knesset passed on first reading the bill that would make it illegal to support or aid boycotts of Israel or Israeli products (including from settlements). [Arutz Sheva]

• Kosher sex-ed. [Ynet/Failed Messiah]

• Henry Kissinger has called for Jonathan Pollard’s pardon. Great ammunition for those who oppose it. [Press Release/Vos Iz Neias?]

• Due to changing insurance rules, talk therapy will increasingly be the exclusive reserve of upper-middle-class Jews living in the capital of a great empire during its decline and fall. You know, like Freud’s Vienna. [NYT]

• Arnost Lustig, a Czech Jew who wrote fiction about Holocaust survivors, died at 84. [NYT]

• They’re going to be showing Shoah (say that ten times fast) on Iranian satellite TV dubbed into Farsi. [AP/Vos Iz Neias?]

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.

All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
