In case you weren’t able to read the other local Jewish blogs this week, here are a few of my favorite articles:
- Rejection: Does GTJ’s Erika have it Right?: Samantha disagrees with Erika’s most recent GTJ column. Note to Samantha: I strongly agree with your italicized part at the bottom about “the wallet dance.”
The Blog at 16th and Q:
- Labor Day—Good for the Jews : Lili Kalish Gersch links to a number of pages that “link” Judaism and Labor Day. Each of the links makes me twitch a little bit—we’ll see if I have time to write some rejoinders this week.
InTheMoment (Moment Magazine):
- Singing a New Song: Steven Philp (who spells his name incorrectly) disagrees with one of MTV’s music award picks and suggests instead that those looking for the theme of hope in music should try a new Matisyahu song. But if it’s hope you’re going for, I still recommend “All I do is win.” Think about it, if you work really hard, you could win… all the time… like the U in the 80s…
Jewish Policy Center:
- Does Israel’s Vindication Anger Turkey?: The Turkey/Israel relationship hits new lows. Somebody somewhere is surprised…
Washington Jewish Week:
- Shake-up on J Street: Adam Kredo writes about the departure of one of J-Street’s top officials: Hadar Susskind. J-Street has yet to name a replacement – my name is conspicuously absent from the short list.
