The Purim Review
This is the Voice in the Wilderness, broadcasting from the desert that is Friday afternoon at HUC-JIR in Los Angeles, with the next installment of my weekly journal review.
Today’s topic, as promised, is:
Recent Articles I wouldn’t Dream of Reading!
And here they are, in no particular order. The names of the author’s have been intentionally omitted to spare them undeserved humiliation:
Warren’s Shaft – Debate Continues. In Biblical Archeology Review Vol. 33:2. March/April 2007.
Differences in Vorlage or Lexical Ignorance: a Dilemma in the Old Greek of Proverbs.
In: The Journal for the Study of Judaism, Vol. XXXVIII, No. 1, 2007.
Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar? In: The Jewish Observer, vol. XL, No. 2.
Dollarizing Peace. In: Israel Affairs, Vol. 13:1, January 2007.
The Smoldering Jew. In: New Voices, Vol. 15:3, Winter 2007.
The Negative Jew. In: The Jewish Quarterly Review, Vol. 97:1, Winter 2007.
Can Science Validate the Psychedelic Experience? In: Tikkun, March/April 2007.
Wait! I just read the blurb for this last article: “…how psychedelic drugs may be the latest bridge between science and religion.” Maybe I should read it, and build that bridge myself!
I am out of here, en route to find religion, or science, or Purim – whichever comes first…
Have an “Ad-delo-yada” moment or two.
Happy Purim! :-)
