The Jewish Body

I’ve been blogging all week at a website called, on the subject www.nytimes.comof my new book, The Jewish Body. The entries are called “The Circs,” “The Sex,” “The Nose Jobs,” “The Muscle-Jews,” and “The Warriors.” If you haven’t been to, it’s worth a visit, and not just for my contributions. Based in Brooklyn (but not your father’s Brooklyn) it’s a lively, colorful, enlightening potpourri of things young Jews are thinking—about politics, culture, lifestyle, religion, and sex. This old Jew was glad to be included. I was particularly touched by Melissa Seligman’s series on being the wife of a soldier deployed to Iraq.
