In this issue: Two daughter’s-eye views of divorce: one twentysomething is blissfully blind to the conflicts that fractured her family, the other invents a “kashrut of families” to keep her fractious parents apart. Why is the zaftig, sexy Betty Boop Jewish? The poet Zelda’s sensual Hebrew verses. Letty Cottin Pogrebin’s unusual wedding anniversary celebration. Single-sex prayer services in the name of pluralism?
