Fall 1996

In this issue: “Are You Black or Are You Jewish?” Mulling over a double birthright. Jewelry knots one family together through thievery, resentment and sorrow. Children’s book mavens tell what they’ve loved (or shrunk from) in the Bible, Helene Aylon’s visual midrash on Genesis liberates God wih a pink magic marker. Lilith’s idiosyncratic timeline poster limns 6,000 years of history.
