Today in Tablet Magazine, Daphne Merkin takes a look at Rebecca Rubin, the American Girl series’s first permanent-collection Jewish doll. Senior Writer Allison Hoffman profiles Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, a solidly middle-class hamishe New York couple who somehow turned themselves into formidable contemporary art collectors. For those in more of a watching than reading mood, Yuri Baranovsky presents a Hanukkah-themed episode of his Web show, Break a Leg. From our archives, novelist Jonathan Tropper remembers one especially fraught pubescent Hanukkah. And we will try to hide our voice cracks by speaking very softly today on The Scroll.
