FOR­WARD AT 120

Forward Magazine - - Shima Now -

On Novem­ber 26, 1944, For­ward staff writer and fu­ture No­bel Prize-win­ner Isaac Ba­she­vis Singer con­fronted the eter­nally vex­ing ques­tion of in­ter­mar­riage. More than 70 years later, some of the ar­gu­ments he presents are no longer per­ti­nent. But, in Chana Pol­lack and Myrna Mniewski’s trans­la­tion, it is as­ton­ish­ing to see just how much of Singer’s es­say reads as if it could have been writ­ten yes­ter­day.
