Throw the Jew…

in the box! Literally.

In the Berlin Jewish Museum, there’s a box with a jew who is there to answer ‘everything you wanted to know about Judaism’ (that person must be really smart!) Now, putting a jew in a confined spot in Germany may seem pretty offensive and it has generated a fair bit of controversy. This controversy seems to have been anticipated by the organizers, who claim “We wanted to provoke, that’s true, and some people may find the show outrageous or objectionable. But that’s fine by us.”

Muffti has a pretty hard time seeing what the box is supposed to add to an otherwise interesting idea. But he also thinks that perhaps detractors have been a little heavy handed with their claims. But what do you guys think?

    Our friend Jamie Rudnick sat in the box for a couple of hours and he seemed positive about the experience. I don’t think people sitting in the box are expected to be experts on Judaism per se. They just answer rather routine and banal questions – routine and banal to us but super interesting to the many Germans who don’t know any Jews. So I’m cool with this Jew in a box thing…
