Sundown: Larry David Goes Native

Plus saving the earth from synagogues, an identity musical, and more

Print Email

• For a strange and degrading appearance on Lopez Tonight, Larry David took a DNA test and host George Lopez revealed that the comedian “really is a bad Jew,” as he is, supposedly, 37 percent Native American. [Monsters and Critics]
• The overzealous printing of Torah-study pamphlets by Israeli synagogues has led to a garbage crisis, as the holy pages must be disposed in special genizah bins and then buried; an environmental group is encouraging publishers to refrain from printing whole Bible verses and using God’s name, which will allow the sheets to be recycled. [Arutz 7]
• Congratulations to Irina Reyn, who won the Goldberg Prize for Jewish Fiction by Emerging Writers for her 2008 book, What Happened to Anna K. [Foundation for Jewish Culture]
• Joel and Ethan Coen have a marketing video for A Serious Man that seems to be especially for the tribe (much like the flick itself), in which they discuss “the aspects of Jewish arcane that are in the movie.” [JTA]
• In My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding, a new musical now running in Toronto, playwright David Hein explores “what it means to be Jewish in a multi-hyphenated world.” [Canadian Press]
