Digging the Digger
Sir: That was a nice Hanukkah gift you sent us: the cover story on Dr. Nelson Glueck [Dec. 13].
You dug into him as skillfully as he digs into the soil of the Holy Land. And you produced a gem.
I have always contended that TIME must make Judaism out to be exotic. Hitherto that has precluded the highlighting of a Reform rabbi, who, after all, is usually beardless and unquaint-looking. You solved the problem beautifully, producing a turbaned Nelson Glueck. My compliments! Thanks, too, for showing him also in civvies.
