‘This is where the Jewish people are at’


It’s weird watching the tides of content interest on the Web. For almost two months, a link I posted about the origin of UCLA’s Undie Run as part of a comment on LAist.com got almost no clicks. In the past two days got more than 70.

Similarly, the discussion of my Q&A with The Forward on the paper’s Website only had three comments the first week it was up. But yesterday there was a flurry of back and forth. This reaction from yehudis particularly caught my attention:

I actually cried reading this interview. This is where the Jewish people are at right now, and it is a very sad story from any angle you examine it.

When I write in birthday cards to my mom, I enjoy moving her to the point of tears (usually of joy). But I can’t boast the same about yehudis’ sentiment, which I think is related to this recent dialogue on Jewcy.
