Eli Rosenblatt on Aggadatah and the contours of Jewish community, secularism and piety in Yiddish literature, historical narratives and Halakhic decisions

This week on radio613, Avi’s Talmud khevrusa from Yeshivat Hadar, Eli Rosenblatt, joins the show. Eli is a Phd candidate in the Joint Doctoral Program in Jewish Studies at UC Berkeley. His insights have appeared in The Forward, Jewschool.com, and other arenas of Jewish thought. The conversation ranges from Talmudic Aggadatah and the contours of “Jewish community”, secularism and piety in Yiddish literature, historical narratives and Halakhic decisions, and a reading of Yiddish American poet JL Teller’s work. (original air date: January 2009)
