On the [Jew] Media

Unorthodox host Mark Oppenheimer recently published an op-ed in The New York Times about our aversion to using the word 'Jew,' as opposed to 'Jewish.' Is 'Jew' still considered a slur? By many, yes. Should we reclaim it? Definitely, says Mark.

He discussed his op-ed with On the Media's Brooke Gladstone a couple of weeks ago, and we're pleased to share their conversation with you here in full. (Don't worry, the next full episode of Unorthodox will go live as scheduled on May 25!)

As always, we welcome your thoughts and feedback at Unorthodox@tabletmag.com.



Tablet is the web's top destination for Jewish news and culture, and on Unorthodox its writers say stuļ¬€ their editors can't edit out.
