The Wicked Son by David Mamet First Blog

Welcome to our first Wilshire Boulevard Temple Nextbook blog!!

David Mamet, the Pulitzer Prize winning playwrite, has never shied away from controversy. In this book The Wicked Son (Nextbook-Schocken, 2006) he wrestles with anti-Semitism and Jewish self-loathing.

Mamet begins by putting us all around the Seder table and grappling with the wicked son.
Who is the wicked son that Mamet struggles with in the book? What role does he play in the Seder? What role does he play in Jewish life? In your life?

Looking forward to your responses.
Rabbi Karen L. Fox
