While Jews and Gentiles alike focused on impeachment news this week, there were some interesting Forward stories as well, summarized below:
– Mental illness and anti-semitism: are the crazies really insane? Is the Pope catholic?
– We need non-jews to stand up to anti-semitism. Just ask this holocaust survivor!
– Where’s Waldo? Is he studying the Talmud? Or lining up his date card?
– Kafka’s “The Trial” on trial in Poland, gets cancelled in US production: skip if polish politics are not your thing.
– Resurgence of Ladino language? What the heck is Ladino anyway?
– On Culture: who was the first Jewish actor to win an Oscar? Hint: it wasn’t Jackie Cooper, or Joaquin Phoenix.
– On Bagels: Forward staff reveal their favorite bagel boulangerie with a decidedly New York bias. Sorry Molly, Boichicks not on the list, but there was a montreal mentioned. Brooklyn Ben, please weigh in?
Shabbat Shalom, hey! https://assets.forward.com/pdfs/01.17.20.pdf
