A Long Overdue Correction

Lawrence Bush
March 20, 2018

In February, 1964, Jewish Currents mistakenly identified fencer Henry Kolowrat as a Jewish athlete. That error was included in Mr. Kolowrat’s Wikipedia entry. He recently wrote to us that the “attribution probably resulted from a plan by one of my Jewish friends in the fencing world. Having a sense of humor, and even back then being an apostate Catholic from a long line of Catholics, it took me a while to get around to fixing it.”

​​​​Lawrence Bush edited Jewish Currents from 2003 until 2018. He is the author of Bessie: A Novel of Love and Revolution and Waiting for God: The Spiritual Explorations of a Reluctant Atheist, among other books. His new volume of illustrated Torah commentaries, American Torah Toons 2, is scheduled for publication this year.
