James Kirchick profiles Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld, the gay-friendly Orthodox clergyman in Washington, D.C. Contributing editor Eddy Portnoy considers the gruesome 1871 death of a young girl at the hands of a immigrant from Plotsk masquerading as a doctor. And art critic Jeannie Rosenfeld examines the work of artist Ron Arad, the subject of a retrospective at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
