New Azure

Azure is trying something new. In addition to putting its entire journal on its website, it has just started e-mailing advance PDFs of the journal to select contacts (I don't know how many are on the list, but I am). Very cool!

I haven't had a chance to read it, but I'll post the table of contents below. Right now, three things look very interesting: An article by Natan Sharansky (one of the few living heroes the Jewish people has) about the political legacy of Theodor Herzl, an article by someone I don't know about Rosenzweig and Heidegger, and a letter from R. Aaron Levine about halakhah, globalization and Nike's business practices.
