Levy the wrestler, olives for Hanukkah

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Eddy Portnoy profiles long-gone wrestler Martin “the Blimp” Levy, who weighed in at over 600 pounds yet could display surprising grace—“a freak with class,” his manager said. Ruth Ellen Gruber ponders the juxtaposition of Hanukkah and olive-harvest season at her grove in Umbria, Italy. From our archives, Ben Birnbaum remembers Brooklyn Hanukkahs growing up, set against the backdrop of his parents’ marriage’s dissolution. We will try to highlight at least some happier things today on The Scroll.
