1778314In this week’s episode: Numbers 1-3.  We consider the age-old tradition of counting Jews in benign and malign contexts and how one man’s count is another man’s kerfuffle.

ICYMI, have a look at the Eichmann document from the Wannsee Conference here.  There’s also Timothy Noah’s piece at Slate about Nixon’s Jew Count and the transcripts at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia Presidential Recordings Program.   And finally, the complete Pew Research Centre’s “A Portrait of Jewish Americans” as well as the eye-crossing sidebar on “Who is a Jew?” and the fun for the whole family Jewish population calculator!
