Every now and then someone points me in the direction of something from NDQ’s vast archive. A couple weeks ago, Kate Sweney our long-serving (and now retired) managing editor and current editorial board member mentioned a story by Bábara Mújica from NDQ 65.2 (1998) titled “How José Ignacio Maria de Jesús San Juan e Ynduráin Learned to Dance the Hora.”
The story is really fantastic and a great way to start the slide into the weekend. It tells the story of a Chilean family who struggles to find ways to come to terms with their daughter’s decision to marry into an Orthodox Jewish family.
The issue features a fantastic cover by Linda Whitney that I reproduce here rather poorly!
