“Chagigah Shel Am” Yom Kippur Special
September 12, 2013

It is with great appreciation and honour that we present for you the remastered recording of a Yom Kippur radio show hosted by David Migel Lerman, זיכרה לברכה (may his memory be for a blessing). Throughout the 1990s David hosted “Chagigah Shel Am” as part of the Jewish Cultural Hour on jazz radio 88.9fm in Milwaukee, WI. Many Jews in the Milwaukee area donated their Jewish music recordings to David so he could play them on-air. Famous Jewish musicians from around the world joined the show as did David’s kids, who helped announce songs and sing on-air.

We present for you Chagiga Shel Am’s Yom Kippur specially originally broadcast in the early 90s on 88.9fm during the Aseres Yemei Teshuva (Ten Days of Repentance). A huge thank you to Nom for sending us this recording of their father’s show to play for you. This is a groys fargenign, to say the least.

To a sweet and whole New Year for our listeners. May you all be inscribed in the Book of Life.

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.
