Some fun and interesting things around the web:
Have you been waiting for the all Jewish, all male, all beard version of American Idol? No?
Ok, well, see what you didn’t know you were missing by checking out Jewish Star, a talent competition judged by the top performers and management in the Hasidic Jewish world. Thanks to my friend Hasidic Musician for tipping me off to this wonderful piece of entertainment.
In more Yiddish news, Harvard Yiddish professor Ruth Wisse tries to answer the question How is Yiddish Doing? A couple of responses to Prof. Wisse’s article here and here. Watch this space for my own response to the essay, coming soon.
