THE ISRAEL MUSEUM AT 50
This issue we reported on the murky world of people smuggling in Tel Aviv, Linda Grant discussed the legacy of Saul Bellow, and Jason Solomons spoke to Géza Röhrig, the star of the Cannes hit film Son of Saul. We also toured Portugal to uncover its secret Jewish communities and ancient archaeological finds, with a special piece on the present day Spanish and Portuguese communities in the UK. Plus we reviewed the Israel Museum’s 50th anniversary show; visited the Jews of Singapore; found out how the art of origami brought Jewish and Palestinian children together; compared kosher wines (that actually taste good!); rounded up the summer happenings (including Edinburgh and Jewish Heritage Days); and read up on Jewish dogs!
