Congrats to our friends over at Zeek on their new website

Jo Ellen Kaiser, the editor of Zeek, writes:

The new website is part of a larger partnership with the Forward, the leading U.S. Jewish newspaper. The Forward will cosponsor many Zeek events, and will be advertising Zeek pieces on its home page. We are excited about collaborating with the Forward’s editorial staff on a range of stories — today, for example, Zeek runs a review of Rachel Shabi’s new book, while the Forward interviews Shabi herself. We hope that you will take a look at what the Forward has to offer, either on their website at or in print — they have a great special offer for Zeek readers.

Speaking of print, Zeek’s fall print issue has arrived. Focused on Israel, pieces by Zeek editor Joel Schalit, Shai Ginsburg, and Kevin Kahn-Harris ask how the Israeli-Palestinian struggle has impacted the relationship between U.S. Jews and Israeli Jews. You will also find a provocative interview of Judith Butler by Huffington Post regular Mark LeVine, and new fiction by Benjamin Tammuz and Etgar Keret. None of these pieces have appeared on our website, so subscribe now.

What do you think?
