Sure, it’s a comic (and profanity-laced) take on Judaism’s holiest book, and might understandably rub some people the wrong way. But it’s an earnest effort—at the very least for how much time it’s taken Tuchman (he’s rounding out year one and he’s still in Genesis) and how much thought goes into the whole enterprise. No one translates the entire Bible just to make fun of it.
I am seriously blushing. Especially at this: “A large crowd gathered at the East Village bar for the reading, as good a refutation as any to the recent Pew study findings of younger Jews losing interest in organized Judaism.” Oh my! Thank you, Tablet!
Also, if you’re reading this because you just read the article on Tablet, welcome! Might I suggest you catch up on old episodes here? And if you like what you see, consider joining the audience for episode 13 (details below)!
