Dear Reader,

Our Fall 2023 issue will be arriving in mailboxes in just a few weeks. We’re incredibly proud of this issue and, as a special new-year promotion to our newsletter readers, we’re offering a one-time offer if you subscribe today:

Subscribe today for half-off our subscription price! That’s $24 for a print subscription and just $12 for a digital subscription. Use the code FALL50JC at check-out.

We’re so excited to share our upcoming issue with you. Here’s a sneak peek of some of what you’ll find inside:

  • Suzanne Schneider writes about Israel’s emerging National Conservative movement, whose founder Yoram Hazony sees settlement life as a model for right-wing nation-states around the globe.

  • Mari Cohen explores a new effort to offer restorative justice to victims of traffic violence—and tries to come to terms with her feelings toward the person who hit her with a car and fled the scene two years ago.

  • In a deep-dive report, Alex Kane digs into the Biden administration’s refusal to rethink the US–Israel relationship despite the extremism of Israel’s government.

  • A special folio about the francophone feminist theorist Hélène Cixous features a wide-ranging conversation between Cixous and Claire Schwartz; meditations on her work by Jo Mrelli, aracelis girmay, Sarah Hammerschlag, and Jules Gill-Peterson; and fiction by Cixous herself.

Subscribe today to receive a year of issues—three print copies and our beautiful winter gift—for just $24, or get a digital subscription for just $12. Use the code FALL50JC at check-out.

In addition to all of that:

  • We’re also republishing James Baldwin’s classic essay on the fraught relationships between Black and Jewish communities, along with a roundtable discussion on the subject between nyle fort, Marc Lamont Hill, Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, and Ben Ratskoff, moderated by Daniel May.

  • In reviews, Nora Caplan-Bricker considers the novels of Isabella Hammad, asking how art might prepare the individual for the political demands of collectivity, and Julie E. Cooper takes on Daniel Boyarin’s The No-State Solution, which attempts to revive the intellectual tradition of diaspora nationalism for the contemporary Jewish left.

  • Plus, poems from Momtaza Mehri and Joyce Mansour, a comic from Eli Valley, and more!

I hope you enjoy the issue.
