I'm late on this, but Ta-Nehisi points me to this news about a newly-ordained African-American woman rabbi. V. exciting. I think we're about to enter an age of black-Jewish harmony. I always think that, but more now. We have a black-Jewish White House (Deputy White House Chief of Staff Mona Sutphen is both at once!) And we'll always have Lenny Kravitz. And Joshua Redman.
