Comment of the Week

(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at mtracy@tabletmag.com with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “JW,” who was not pleased with senior writer Liel Leibovitz’ plea that we cease commemorating 9/11. “Maybe your article should have been about why you were so angry in the first place. You might learn something about yourself, and then you can understand other people and go and make suggestions as audacious as to how an entire nation should memorialize September 11th,” JW wrote. “This is probably going to offend you; You write with the attitude of a 23-old female. I could be way off on that assumption, but I’d put money on it.”

Liel considers this “The absolute greatest comment I’ve ever received.” JW gets a copy of Melvin Konner’s The Jewish Body.
