I haven’t been publicizing this blog very much at this early date, but one friend with whom I have shared it has suggested several good resources to add. One is this site, documenting the history of Jews in America. It’s a great recommendation, and I’m grateful to B.J. for offering it.
“What more could there possibly be to say about ‘The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy,’ the controversial new book-length version of John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt’s provocative thesis about pro-Israel forces in America?” Luckily, Gal Beckerman does indeed have something to say, on the Columbia Journalism Review Web site.
Having just finished celebrating the Jewish New Year, I am happy to launch a new project: My Machberet blog. Please come back soon for news and commentary on Jewish literary topics. Thanks!
