In Tablet Magazine today, Mayim Bialik, who starred in the early-‘90s series Blossom, relays how her religiously-motivated modest dress can conflict with her career. Douglas Century wraps up his saga on Israel’s criminal underground (previous sections: 1; 2; 3; 4). Betcha can’t read just one of Liel Leibovitz’s articles today: please enjoy both his weekly midrash—this week’s parasha features Moses’s farewell speech—and his meditation on the relationship between Israeli identity and coffee. And if blogposts are volumes, then The Scroll will be speaking volumes throughout the day.
