Today in Tablet Magazine, watch and listen to a recording of “Eight Days of Hanukkah,” a song written by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) for the magazine. Contributor Jeffrey Goldberg explains the provenance of the song (Sen. Hatch, it seems, is a man of his word), and praises its lyrics as a rebellion against “the Adam Sandlerization of Judaism in America.” With due respect to Sandler, Philip Roth is much more the muse of The Scroll, which will have new posts throughout the day.
