Palestinian Art

It is not every day you will find a recent former yu boy publishing on Arab American News. Today it is art enthiusiast Menchem Wecker who reviews Gannit Ankori’s new book “Palestinian Art.” Ankori is a Jewish professor of art at Hebrew University who offers detailed insight on a relative unkown. As is his signature style, Wecker siezes an oppurtunity to “stick it” to common MO social mores.

  1. I’m glad you’ve taken time to call attention to the ecumenical Mr. Wecker. Though your post carries a distinct connotation of displeasure with Mr. Wecker’s article in the Arab American News, I feel you and all associated with YU should raise a glass and offer an encomium to Mr. Wecker, whose work has proved that YU can produce alumni with diverse and open-minded views. To this end, it’s worth noting that Mr. Wecker has also published in the Muslim Times and the Arlington Catholic Herald:
    Perhaps Modern Orthodoxy ought to embrace Mr. Wecker as its poster-boy for interfaith dialogue.

  2. Thank you Michael. Where exactly did I express “displeasure” ?
    I pointed to the article as a point of interest without expressing pleasure or displeasure.
    I cited his opening as a signature style.
