This year, the radio613 collective survived the rain and cold in our beautiful little sukkah WITH a recorder! Tune in to hear our rituals, thoughts, readings and discussions. With beautiful music from Steven Bernstein, the Afro-Semitic Experience, the Klezmatics, and the Shondes. If you are sad the simcha is over and want to spend a little more time relishing in the wonders of sukkos, you can also give a listen to our previous sukkot shows from 2009 and 2008.

Episode 25: Succos and an Anti-Colonial Thanksgiving
October 15, 2009

Chagim air-time proceeds. Following some harvest-y music, the show begins with a look at the succah as a check on opulence during a period of joy. In light of the succah’s symbol of the temporary nature of ownership, we explore some of what it means to live as a settler on stolen land. Joining us for this discussion is Matt – one of the organizers of the annual Anti-Colonial Thanksgiving Dinner in Guelph, ON, Turtle Island. Tune in for  informative words and thoughts. The show concludes with a lament for the loss of Marek Edelman – the last surviving leader of the Warsaw Ghetto resistance, Bund Member, committed diasporist, cardiologist, and a lasting anti-fascist voice in Poland.

Music from Frank London’s Klezmer All-Stars, Klezmer Conservatory Band, and Testament.
