Episode 44: Velveteen Rabbi Interview
September 17, 2010

Just in time for the close of the Yamim Noraim between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we speak with the Velveteen Rabbi, aka Rachel Barenblat. radio613 collective members have appreciated the mindful Jewish thought emanating from Rachel’s blog for years. Malcah and Avi got the chance to hear Rachel’s poetry and speak with her about rabbinical school, High Holy day preparation, new translations, and the transformation of ritual to social justice. In the last week, the New York Times and the Forward have covered Rachel’s online work to support a New York mosque affected by the recent wave of inhumane Islamophobia in America. Rachel comments on these events as well.

Music from Beyond the Pale and Kol Nidre incantation by Cantor Moishe Oysher.
