Trouble JTS, preparing for Valentine’s Day, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Staff Writer Marissa Brostoff reports that the in-debt Jewish Theological Seminary is merging its traditionally separate cantorial school into its rabbinical school; some worry that the shuttering expresses a larger trend of decline in Conservative Judaism. Contributing editor Daphne Merkin muses on how she learned (or didn’t learn) how to flirt, with interlocutors from her father to high school boys and beyond. David Sax says he is anticipating a decidedly unromantic Valentine’s Day: it’s difficult to plan too much for that night when you and your significant other are already planning your wedding. In his weekly haftorah column, Liel Leibovitz reminds Tea Partiers that, when it comes to April 15th, “it’s not about taxation or representation but about responsibility, the kind of strong personal commitment that drives people not to for-profit festivals of malice and merchandise but to work for the common good.” The Scroll, on the other hand, kind of likes the sound of these for-profit festivals of malice and merchandise.
