Remember Us Unto Life
A celebration of Rosh Hashanah, The Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement -- ten days known as the Jewish High Holidays. The program takes the form of a conversation between Rabbi Ismar Schorsch, Chancellor Emeritus of the Jewish Theological Seminary and host Larry Josephson, a secular Jew who wants to know more about the religion of his grandparents. Rabbi Schorsch talks about the history, liturgy and meaning in our time of these ancient holidays, the most solemn on the Jewish calendar. The conversation is illustrated and elevated by beautiful music of the High Holidays.
Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin
As the Roma journeyed through Europe and beyond, the native music and that of these travelers combined to create an energetic and exotic confluence unlike anything else. This week we'll sample some of this music and its antecedents.
