January 10, 2020 – Shabbat is here! And so is your weekly Jew News in review!

This weeks highlights from the editors of Forward:
– A Jewish immigrant love story of an ancient Jewish mariner and a sewing machine-less seamstress? A Jewish rescue mission? 

– Jews march over Brooklyn Bridge united in protesting anti-semitism: a little singing, a little walking, some kvetching and some debating. Sounds like a typical weekend at my house

.- Social Anti-semitism: what is it? Are there historical parallels? I’m so confused…

– On culture: Elizabeth Wurtzel passed away this week. A short essay on her life and writings.

– Haredi women secret talmud scholars? Wow, next thing you know they will want to vote! 

Shabbat Shalom everyone! https://assets.forward.com/pdfs/01.10.20_edit.pdf
