Dancers with Russian names, Denise Steen, and more
Today in Tablet Magazine, Staff Writer Marissa Brostoff explores the world of competitive ballroom-dancing—which has recently come to be dominated by Russian-Jewish émigrés. Ellen Umansky profiles Denise Steen, a novelist of the Jewish community who enjoys the marketing benefits of the family-owned billboard business. Liel Leibovitz finds in this week’s haftorah resonances with the current situation in Judea and Samaria, whose implications do not reflect well on those areas’ Jewish inhabitants. And The Scroll promises to ease you into the weekend.
