Today in Tablet Magazine, Peter Balakian argues that Israel’s new enmity with Turkey makes this a good time for it to reconsider its official stance on the Armenian genocide, which has largely been to go along with Turkey’s strident denials. Books critic Adam Kirsch digs into Robert Alter’s new translation of the Books of Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. Menachem Kaiser reports on American Jews’ efforts to bring authentic bagels back to Vilnius. The Scroll could use a translation of Ecclesiastes that is actually readable.
