One more comment re: Wieseltier & the “New American Haggadah”

(chag sameach!)

Reading Wieseltier’s review felt like watching someone murder someone. On the other hand, my mom thought LW’s review hit the nail on the head. She doesn’t read Hebrew, but she think the English is awful! Siegfried Kracauer  said the same thing about the Buber-Rosenzweig translation of the Bible.
