In the Times Literary Supplement today (not on the website) there’s a review—by D. D. Guttenplan of The Nation—of Jonathan Wittenberg’s new book, The Silence of Dark Water. Wittenberg is a rabbi from the Masorti, and so is an arch-accommodationist from the other side. However, he has a good joke. Wittenberg was at Loch Ness on holiday and was appalled by all the tourist trash: t shirts, pens etc.
Wittenberg tells the joke on himself: ” ‘So much stuff and no one’s even seen the creature!’ I complained. ‘So what do you do for a living?’ came the reply.”
