Today we’re happy to welcome a new Web magazine to the spectrum of Jewish opinion and letters: Mosaic. Readers of Mosaicmagazine.com, which marks its debut today, will be able to enjoy the daily “Editor’s Picks” of the best writing on Jewish subjects that was part of its predecessor publication Jewish Ideas Daily. But in addition to that, it will provide a monthly feature on an issue of pressing significance for Jews, Judaism, or the Jewish state. Throughout the month, the discussion about that article will continue with interviews with the author, debate about the essay’s arguments and other comments. The premiere essay by Leon Kass on the Ten Commandments gives the magazine an auspicious start.
Readers of COMMENTARY will need no stronger incentive to become regular visitors to Mosaic than the news that its editor is Neal Kozodoy. Neal’s legacy of excellence during his long tenure as editor at COMMENTARY helped establish it as the leading voice of conservative and Jewish ideas. Under his guidance, Mosaic will make an important contribution to the Jewish public square as well as giving us something important to read and think about on a regular basis.
