From Abraham to Zabar’s and Everything In Between: An Unorthodox Guide To All Things Jewish

Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC

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.

Speakers include:

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
