Southern & Jewish
Southern & Jewish celebrates the stories, people, and experiences – past and present – of Jewish life in the American South. Hosted by the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life, posts come from educators, students, rabbis, parents, artists, and many other “visitors-to and daily-livers-of” the Southern Jewish experience. From road trips to recipes to reflections, we’ll explore a little bit of everything – well, at least all things Southern and/or Jewish. Shalom, y’all!
In Little Rock, Arkansas, ISJL Education Fellow Erin poses with students who participated in a special program called “There’s No Place Like a Jewish Home.” Here’s hoping yours is filled with peace, love, and warmth this weekend – whether you’re in the South, Oz, Kansas, or anywhere! Shabbat shalom, y’all.
Pronounced: shuh-BAHT or shah-BAHT, Origin: Hebrew, the Sabbath, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday.
