Virtual Streicker Presents: The New Jewish Encyclopedia

From Abraham to Zabar’s and Everything Inbetween: An Unorthodox Guide to all Things Jewish

 

Still not sure exactly what bashert means? Need to brush up on your bageling skills or the acumen of matriarchs, whether ancient or contemporary?

In The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia: From Abraham to Zabar’s and Everything in Between, the hosts of iTunes’ most popular Jewish podcast, Unorthodox, take one-stop Jewish information shoppers on a cheeky romp where Judah Maccabee was a “kickass priest,” Jews composed the soundtrack for Christmas and the definition of a shonde is Bernie Madoff.

Join us as they lead the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center audience on an equally whimsical tour of everything Jewish – or at least Jew-ish – from lulav to lo mein.

With:

Stephanie Butnick, deputy editor of Tablet and host of the Unorthodox podcast

Liel Leibovitz, senior writer for Tablet and author of six books, including Broken Hallelujah: Rock and Roll, Redemption, and the Life of Leonard Cohen

Mark Oppenheimer, former Beliefs columnist for the New York Times and author of The Bar Mitzvah Crasher: Road-Tripping Through Jewish America
