Tonight’s show is a rare opportunity to hear the fruits of some very creative and moving musical projects.

Episode 32: Yid a lamden from the Bay
January 21, 2010

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.  Klezmer this week by Abraham Inc. (“Figure it Out”), Black Ox Orkestar (“Stav Ya Pitu”), and Andy Statman (“Ariela Perle”).
