radio613 returns to the airwaves in time for the the Holy Period between the New Year and Yom Kippur. Beginning with sounds from Avi’s chevrusa study at Yeshivat Hadar this summer. The show features an interview with lifelong anti-racist activist Tema Okun – one of the organizers of the upcoming North Carolina Havurah Yom Kippur Retreat. Tema speaks about the possibility of uplift through a process of Teshuva in the context of the ongoing Occupation of Palestine. Efforts to bridge anti-oppressive politics with religious practice and community building are also explored. The show concludes with a Rosh Hashanah themed Hasidic tale about the Baal Shem Tov.
