Madoff, a new siddur, and Syrian Jews
We offer two pieces in the wake of the Madoff sentencing: a report from the courtroom by Marissa Brostoff and a chart by Liel Leibovitz comparing the 150-year sentence with the magnitude of the crime. Tablet book critic Adam Kirsch reviews an essay collection devoted to the question of whether Jewishness is a religion or an ethnicity. Joshua J. Friedman assesses the typographically-innovative Koren prayer book. And Marissa Brostoff (doing double duty today) sits down for a Q&A with playwright David Adjmi, author of the play Stunning. All this—and regular updates here on The Scroll—today on Tablet.
