Today in Tablet

Solomon’s baby and a Hanukkah song you haven’t heard

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Liel Leibovitz sees this week’s haftorah—in which King Solomon invents his patented cut-the-baby-in-half method of conflict resolution—as a parable for the self-destructive consequences of the impulse to revenge. From our archives, Julie Subrin’s podcast explores the origins of the popular Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) Hanukkah song “Ocho Kandelikas.” And today is the last day that you can read The Scroll during Hanukkah 2009/5770, so don’t miss out!
