Oh … look! It’s another issue of Text/Context, the supplement put together by Jewish Week and Nextbook Inc. In this travel-themed number, Stuart Schoffman documents various innocents abroad in Jerusalem; Rodger Kamenetz describes a visit to Uman, Ukraine, to the grave of the great Rabbi Nachman (the subject of his forthcoming Burnt Books); Ted Merwin profiles the 12th-century journeyman Benjamin of Tudela; and more.
