Mosaic is thrilled to announce that as of spring 2021 Ruth R. Wisse, the beloved scholar of Yiddish and Jewish culture, is now officially a featured columnist writing every month.
She’ll tackle subjects from Yiddish literature to anti-Semitism to Israel and Zionism to much more, and participate in discussions and events. To access all of that, make sure you’re subscribed by going here.
Wisse is also professor emerita of Yiddish and comparative literatures at Harvard and a distinguished senior fellow at the Tikvah Fund. Her memoir Free as a Jew: a Personal Memoir of National Self-Liberation, chapters of which appeared in Mosaic in somewhat different form, will be published in September.
