Playmate-turned-philanthropist Cheryl Saban, Lower East Side clairvoyance, and more
On Tablet Magazine today, senior writer Allison Hoffman takes a look at Cheryl Saban, wife of Power Rangers mogul and major Democratic donor Haim Saban, who went from beach bunny to mover and shaker, and says she is the force behind all her husband’s charitable giving. Plus, senior editor Sara Ivry talks to Sam Apple, who’s got a new book out on parenthood; music columnist Alexander Gelfand considers the latest chapter in black-Jewish collaboration, and historian Eddy Portnoy reads 19th-century Yiddish newspapers to uncover the story of Abraham Hochman, a Lower East Side clairvoyant. There will be more posted throughout the daily, of course, including regular updates to The Scroll.
