Today on Tablet

An Argentinian dissident, a Yiddish poet, Afro-Semitic beats

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Bridget Kevane examines the late Argentinian dissident and publisher Jacobo Timerman, who, sometimes by necessity, played a complex game when it came to exposing anti-Semitism in his country. Zackary Sholem Berger eulogizes the great Yiddish-language poet Avrom Sutzkever, and bemoans Sutzkever’s underappreciated status (go appreciate three of his poems—the final one especially). Music columnist Alexander Gelfand profiles two bands that combine Jewish and African folk musics: the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra and the Afro-Semitic Experience. Reading The Scroll is its own sort of experience.
