AJE Around the Web

By Erika Dreifus on February 24, 2015


Presenting the latest installment of our blog feature: AJE Around the Web. In these posts, we curate for you some of the best items we’ve discovered lately that address American Jewish Experience.

  • Some of us remember when “Roots” and “Holocaust” first appeared on our television screens. But how does a millennial viewer understand them now?  Ruth Margalit writes on this for Tablet.
  • From the JTA Archive: “Cincinnati, Cradle and Capital of Reform Judaism.”
  • Coming soon: the Purim holiday. Need a refresher? Check MyJewishLearning.com.
  • On the Lilith blog, a tribute to the late Lesley Gore: “beloved musician, committed feminist, powerful mensch.”
  • Finally, with the Oscars just behind us, you may want to peruse the #MakeMoviesJewish hashtag that took off over the weekend. (Warning–some tweets may be cringe-inducing!)
