DON'T CRACK UNDER PRESSURE

et

misgivings about a review
that Moment published in
October of Rabbi Joseph
Telushkin's Jewish Literacy.
Written by Noam M.M.
Neusner, a staff reporter at
the Detroit Jewish Jewish
News, the highly critical re-
view claimed the book was
merely a collection of lists,
lacked "a coherent struc-
ture," and did "not make
Jewish facts interesting,
which they are."
The rabbi's book, stated
Mr. Neusner, "will never
release Jews from the
mistaken notion that being
Jewish means simply know-
ing facts."
In Moment's current issue,
Ms. Singer asserts in her
column that the first version
of Mr. Neusner's review was
"grossly unfair" and his se-
cond version — the one Mo-
ment published — was
"more civil in tone, ... but,
to me, still inadequate."
At that point, Ms. Singer
"caved," and "the principle
of not censoring Moment's
authors won out ... Ever
since, I have been troubled
by this decision."
Ms. Singer said that she
feared Mr. Neusner's review
"had damaged a valuable
work."
This month's column, she
said, marked the first time
she had publicly denounced
a review that had appeared
in Moment.
"I hope I will not do this
again," she said.
"Occasionally, we get a cut-
and-slash review, and we tell
the reviewer we can't use it.
Or I may go back to a re-
viewer and ask him to delete
a certain passage. But we
usually publish almost
anything that we ask for."

Dubious Time
At Esquire

Few events in magazine
journalism are more awaited
than Esquire's dubious
achievement awards, which
annually appear in its
December issue.
This year, "the magagine
for men" pulls out all the
stops as it celebrates the
30th year of the tongue-in-
cheek awards: 26 pages, in-
cluding a retrospective of the
best of previous years' -
awards, and a preview of
possible future awards.
With such a bonanza, it
was probably inevitable that
Esquire would not forget
how Jews fared this last
year. Among the highlights:
