Sundown: Reform Jews Call For Equality for Israeli Arabs

Plus Israel’s minority, an Olympian soundtrack, and more

Print Email

• The Union for Reform Judaism has passed its first resolution calling for equal treatment of Israeli Arabs in the Jewish state. [JTA]
Entertainment Weekly asked Matisyahu, whose song “One Day” is being used to advertise the 2010 Winter Olympics: “So, how did a Jewish reggae guy end up as the official soundtrack to lugeing, curling, and freestyle skiing?” We can’t imagine what the mag is implying about Jews and extreme sports. [EW]
• Peter Kaplan, former editor of the New York Observer, commented on the goings-on at his old rag: “He never thought he’d see the headline ‘Jewish Publisher Hires Pope,’” reports a blogger. He was referring to the paper’s owner Jared Kushner’s selection of Kyle Pope as the new editor, but this headline is not that far off. [Portfolio]
