How we Jews present ourselves, individually or collectively, and how we are represented by others, is a key question addressed in the Winter issue of Jewish Quarterly. Yehoshua Engelman tackles the challenges of Purim and masks, Sam Leith tracks the 40 years of the Wingate Prize and the question of what can be thought of as Jewish literature. In politics, Benjamin Ramm considers the impacts of the Brexit vote on the Jewish community and on European identity, just as Michael Goldfarb analyses the importance of the black vote in President Trump’s election campaign. The journey of modern Jewish sculptors is explored by Emma Crichton-Miller in a brilliant ceramics exhibition at Camden’s Jewish Museum. Finally, in celebration of Bernard Kops’ 90th birthday, the issue features a selection of his previously unpublished work.
