I have really, really enjoyed the first issue of The Jewish Review of Books. I’ve especially enjoyed reading the 11X19 print edition, particularly since Abe Socher’s introduction to the publication talks about the presumed death of print as prophesied by Dr. Egon Spengler. It can still be enjoyed online of course.

The content is quite varied, with contributions as disparate as Harvey Pekar, Dara Horn (writing on Isaac Rosenfeld and the death of the luftmentsch) and Hillel Halkin (who just strikes me as a baller).

  1. This is arguably the third shortest article in the history of Yesterday’s Salad and the first most timely.

  2. Rabbi Dr. Prof. Jurgen Haverstam, DHL Says:

    Oh, to be third shortest! It really is an honor. But wait! What’s this? This is ARGUABLY the third shortest article? Such lack of certainty embitters even such accolades as “first most timely”.
