Goldblog + J Street = Crazy Fun!


Just a bit of home news: I will be in performance this Wednesday night in New York with Jeremy Ben-Ami, the founder and grand rabbi of J Street, the left-leaning pro-Israel group. Jeremy will be singing hits from his new album, "I Got Tears In My Ears From Lying On My Bed Crying On My Pillow Over You," and I will provide value-added entertainment by juggling liberalism and Zionism while riding a flaming unicycle.

No, no, I kid. Jeremy's new album is called, "You've Got Sawdust on the Floor of Your Heart."

We'll be at the Society for Ethical Culture (which is a Chabad House for atheists, I think), located at 2 West 64th Street at Central Park West. The program -- not a debate, a program! -- is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. I think you have to pay money to go, but it will be worth it! Here's a link that explains even more.

Jeffrey Goldberg is a national correspondent for The Atlantic and a recipient of the National Magazine Award for Reporting. He is the author of Prisoners: A Story of Friendship and Terror. More

Before joining The Atlantic in 2007, Goldberg was a Middle East correspondent, and the Washington correspondent, for The New Yorker. He was previouslly a correspondent for The New York Times Magazine and New York magazine. He has also written for the Jewish Daily Forward and was a columnist for The Jerusalem Post.

Goldberg's book Prisoners was hailed as one of the best books of 2006 by the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Slate, The Progressive, Washingtonian magazine, and Playboy. He received the 2003 National Magazine Award for Reporting for his coverage of Islamic terrorism and the 2005 Anti-Defamation League Daniel Pearl Prize. He is also the winner of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists prize for best international investigative journalist; the Overseas Press Club award for best human-rights reporting; and the Abraham Cahan Prize in Journalism.

In 2001, Goldberg was appointed the Syrkin Fellow in Letters of the Jerusalem Foundation, and in 2002 he became a public-policy scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.
