Today in Tablet Magazine, Michelle Goldberg traces how a French Sephardic woman named Mirra Alfassa became the “de facto goddess” of the southern Indian town of Pondicherry. Ian Volner considers the Beth Sholom synagogue in Philadelphia’s suburbs, for which, 50 years ago, Frank Lloyd Wright sought to design “a properly Jewish-American architecture, in a postwar world where America was more and more the center of Judaism.” The newest installment of Steve Stern’s The Frozen Rabbi is here, as it is every day. And speaking of things that are here every day: don’t forget The Scroll.
