Special thanks to Biz Nijdam, Caroline Welsh, Gregory Spinner, and my landsman David Hirmes, for their invaluable practical and existential help with this piece.

Leela Corman is an illustrator and cartoonist. Her most recent graphic novel, Unterzakhn, has been nominated for the LA Times Book Award and the Eisner Award.

Thank you for reading Tablet.

The Jewish world needs a place like Tablet where varying—even conflicting—viewpoints can exist side by side. Our times demand an engagement with big ideas and not a retreat from them. Help us do what we do.
