(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at mtracy@tabletmag.com with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “bob kahan,” who, confronted with the video profile of religious Florida dairy farmer Bill Berman, made this undeniable observation: “we need more Jewish farmers and less Jewish loiyahs!”

Kahan gets a copy of President Shimon Peres’ biography of his mentor David Ben-Gurion, who in addition to being Israel’s first prime minister was an orange-picker back in the day.
