In our current issue Tearing up the rules: Vienna's culture revolution
Head to Vienna with us to meet the Jewish artists, architects, musicians and writers who were at the forefront of the radical modernist movement that shook up the Austrian capital. Elsewhere in this issue we question if there's life after Roth – Mike Witcombe argues there is in his piece on the future of Jewish fiction. Plus hear from Na’ama Zisser, a young composer whose latest work explores the world of the Chasidic community in 1970s New York, and discover a pop-up Jewish Moroccan restaurant in the heart of the Venezuelan capital, Caracas. Have a look below for a sneak peek of what's inside our latest issue!
