Writing a New Jewish Paradise

The fellows at the National Laboratory for New Jewish Culture, or LABA, at the 14th Street Y have recently published the January edition of LABAlights — a space for writing, art, and commentary on Jewish ideas. May we recommend this month’s installment, edited by Sisterhood contributor Elissa Strauss and themed “New Edens.” The volume includes pieces on Bruce Springsteen and the Bible, Spiral Jetty as eco-art, and hikes of the transcendental variety.
