Marjorie Ingall on Jewish Body Week from Tablet Magazine on Vimeo.

To kick off Jewish Body Week, here’s Tablet Magazine parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall talking about her Jewish body. Also today, Jonathan Rosen, the general editor of the Nextbook Press Jewish Encounters book series, argues that Jews are as much people of the body as people of the book. Ingall writes about the guilt felt by Jewish mothers unable to breastfeed. Books columnist Josh Lambert looks at new books that deal with the Jewish body. And, in a from-the-archives greatest hit, we’re reprinting Peter Hyman’s essay on his son’s bris and his internal debate on what to do with the foreskin. We’ll have more considerations of the Jewish body throughout the week—and a new video testimonial each day. Plus, as always, we’ll have more on The Scroll throughout the day.
