• Newsweek has once again decided to inform us who the most important rabbis in the US are. They’ve added a whole extra woman this time. And here, the magazine tells us, are the most important rabbanim in the pulpit. Anybody wonder why they don’t write a similar list for the Episcopal church or Protestantism or American Islam or (etc)?
  • Apropos of the above item, this op-ed by Shifra Bronznick about the still-persistent glass ceiling in the Jewish world is very worth reading.
  • Also kinda apropos of the above item, and my post from a few weeks back, Rabbi Jill Jacobs has whipped up a t-shirt that she’s selling for charity. More on that here.
  • Only vaguely related to the above item, some Canadian shuls are threatening to split from the Conservative movement. How big is the proverbial big tent, and/or how big should it be? Article here.
  • Having pretty much nothing to do with the above item, here’s a nifty Aramaic Family Tree, for those of you who geek that way. But as a teacher of mine pointed out, there are a few of ours missing–Zohar, Yerushalmi, Onkelos, etc.
