ygurvitz has made my week: he bought me an issue of Zmanim, an academic quarterly publication of the History Dept. at Tel-Aviv University, focusing on Wagner and Wagnerism in Germany and Israel. Most of the articles were presented in a symposium on the subject held by the dept. some time ago. I can't wait to read it, but there is simply no hope of my getting around to it before the end of the semester. Nevertheless, whee!
