Today in Tablet Magazine, senior writer Allison Hoffman has a must-read on J Street: How it rose, how it stumbled, and how important it is to the American Jewish left. Contributing editor Joan Nathan has the skinny on French-Jewish cooking, though skinniness is perhaps the last thing reading it will lead to. Susie Linfield considers the utility and even ethics of viewing Holocaust-era photographs. Music columnist Alexander Gelfand profiles Avner Yonai, who was inspired by Everything Is Illuminated (the movie) to resurrect a Polish-Jewish mandolin orchestra. The Scroll wants to be read today, but only after you read the J Street piece.
