My friend and former boss at the Forward, J.J. Goldberg, is blogging regularly. Of everyone I know in the Jewish press, J.J. is the smartest when it comes to Jewish organizational politics, the American Jewish zeitgeist, and getting to the ideological and emotional currents behind the day’s brouhaha. He’s a human search engine when it comes to recalling the last half century of communal history. And beyond the Jewish press, it’s hard to name a better interpreter of our tribe’s strange folkways. And he actually does research, interviewing even those he intends to lambaste.
