Two and a half years is a long time. That’s how long it had been since I’d edited my last print periodical, the January/February 2007 edition of Tikkun. But, immediately after reviewing the final copy edits to Israel vs. Utopia at the end of June, I went to work as the guest editor of Zeek‘s Fall print edition. Hired to assemble the magazine’s first Israel-themed issue, I gave it the title Israelology.
To be released later this month, the issue will be given out for free to registrants of the forthcoming J Street conference, taking place October 25th to 28th in Washington, DC. Israelology will also be distributed to the venues I will be reading at on my US tour in November. The near-simultaneous publication of this edition, in conjunction with my new book, is a welcome accident.
