Comment of the Week

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at mtracy@tabletmag.com [1] with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “Etzion,” who, prompted by Simon Yisrael Feuerman’s musings [2] on his minyan, observed [3], “Even the most established minyanim/shuls, with all of their ‘establishment types,’ have a cast of characters that would be at home at the Star Wars cantina. Yisrael reminds us to exert special effort to see their tzelem Elohim.”

Etzion gets Sherwin B. Nuland’s Maimonides [4], who I think would agree, and this video:
