I haven’t been able to read the comments on this week’s Tablet magazine column. I know they’re…heated. I’m going to dive in after the kids go to bed, with a big glass of wine in hand.
Basically, I had a very strong reaction to Peter Beinert’s essay in the New York Review of Books. And I wrote about my anxiety and ambivalence about Israel, and about my feeling that I’ve fallen down on the job of teaching my kids about Israel because of that anxiety and ambivalence. Anyway…the piece is here. I’d love to know what you think.
