JTS Purim Se’udah 5774 Roundup Part 1

The festive meal and party which I hosted this year for the Jewish Theological Seminary seems to have gone over quite well. This year we presented The Pew-rim Report: Se’udah ’74.

Here are just a few highlights from this year:

– Dr. Raysh Weiss’ brainchild mockumentary, A Very Special JTS Chanukkah Special

– Ishah El Achotah‘s video honoring women rabbis: “Rabbinical Girl”

The Pew-rim Report 5774: the latest statistics on American Jewish life.

– Slides from the trendy Gershom Scholem Presents: Major Fashion Trends In Jewish Mysticism

A responsive reading: A Mi SheBerakh For A Child Considering Rabbinical School

Study sourcesheet for a bio and teachings of “the Yente Rebbe”

– Text of a Medieval poem about a spurned cantor, Adon Ulam (“Master of the Hall”)

An excerpt of the JTS Purim 5774 band (Raysh Weiss, Louis Polisson, Daniel Novick, Jaxson Dermer) + me + Rabbi Danny Nevins playing “Sweet Home Alabama” (or something a lot like it) at the after-se’udah jam session

– Another excerpt of the aforementioned musicians playing Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu

More to come soon!
