Today on Tablet
An anti-Jewish novel, casting Hasidim, and this week’s parasha
There’s a new batch of content for you on Tablet Magazine today. UCLA professor Shelley Salamensky reviews Chandler Burr’s new You or Someone Like You, about a Hollywood macher and his family, and finds it “a freakish, tiresome anti-Jewish tirade.” Allison Hoffman profiles Eliezer Meyer, a Lubavitcher who calls himself “the King of Broadway” and has become the go-to guy for filmmakers and TV shows seeking Hasidic characters. And Liel Leibovitz likens the Israelites in this week’s Torah portion to the self-obsessed kids celebrating Internet Week. Plus, there’s still Mark Oppenheimer’s essay on James von Brunn and the three strains of modern American anti-Semitism, and there will be new content posted all day on the blog you’re reading, The Scroll.
