On Shavuot, Thinking of Converso Jews

posted by David Klinghoffer

This blog entry is being published automatically. I’m off Friday and Saturday for Shavuot, when Jews around the world observe the two-day festival that recalls the giving of the 10 Commandments at Mt. Sinai and the associated mass conversion of […]

Childlessness and Liberalism

posted by David Klinghoffer

My post on childless Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor provoked some interesting misunderstandings among commenters. I argued that the experience of raising kids potentially confers traits you’d want in a judge, more so than merely being Hispanic and female. Remember […]

Why We Were Better Off Before the Internet

The Mission of the Jews
Don't miss my essay over at First Things on the mission of the Jews to the world.
