Stravinsky & A Very Short Introduction to…

listening to The Stravinsky Experience on BBC Radio 3 was fantastic. I forgot how much I enjoy the uninhibited joy and absurd pseudo-with Judaism good food and fun(ny) company!

I’ve also just started reading A Very Short Introduction to Judaism (OUP), which is a great read! It happens disconcertingly rarely that I find a sensitive, approachable, no non-sense book on a complex (and dividing) theme. I did, however, feel rather queasy about the recourring emphasis on Christianity. It made it seem as if the book’s audience was those of Christian origin wishing to understand more about Judaism. One cannot deny of course that Christianity played a major role in shaping Judaism (and of course vice versa).
