Today in Tablet Magazine, Taffy Brodesser-Akner notices that her husband, who converted to Judaism to marry her, desires to be more strictly observant than she. Music critic Alexander Gelfand profiles Mike Cohen, a New York Jewish woodwind player who collaborated with Abayudaya, or Ugandan Jews, on an album. The Scroll will be saying “Abayudaya” ten times fast all day.
