A very Gettysburg Passover, Egypt to Israel in ‘56, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Dara Horn traces the similarities between Civil War re-enactment culture and the rituals of Passover—and finds more than you might think! Patrick Huguenin is our poor non-Jew who learns a kosher-for-Passover recipe in time for Seder. Books critic Adam Kirsch praises the new novel From the Four Winds, which depicts the little discussed “Exodus” of Egyptian Jews to Israel after the 1956 war. The Scroll has never been to a Civil War re-enactment, but has watched the great South Park about one.
