“Vagina” in Yiddish and a guide to Tisha B’Av
In Tablet Magazine today, Elissa Strauss celebrates the rich Yiddish lexicon for describing female genitalia. We present part 3 of Douglas Century’s epic report on the current state of Israeli organized crime (part 1; part 2). Apropos Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s attempts to argue that the Palestinian Grand Mufti’s alliance with Hitler during World War II argues against a settlement freeze, columnist Seth Lipsky details that alliance. In honor of Tisha B’Av (which starts tonight at sundown) we tell you all you need to know about the holiday. And we’ll tell you even more things you need to know throughout the day on The Scroll.
