Out and About: Jewish Films Honored in Berlin; Painting Rahm Emanuel With Pancakes

  • How one of the most popular Jewish books of the modern era explained everything from Kabbalah to cosmology, astronomy, geography, botany, zoology and medicine.

  • Novelist David Bezmozgis and filmmaker Richard J. Lewis exchange letters on “Barney’s Version.”

  • Will Justin Timberlake star in the upcoming Three Stooges movie?

  • A film about Europe’s largest Jewish cemetery and two Israeli movies were honored at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.

  • Paintings of Rahm Emanuel, covered with pancakes, bagels, challah, and other assorted foodstuffs.

Correction: A previous version of the post erroneously stated that composer Lalo Schifrin had died. He is in fact alive and well.
