Holy week http://redriverradio.org en Why This Night with Rabbi Ismar Schorsch http://redriverradio.org/post/why-night-rabbi-ismar-schorsch-1 <p><strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs Sunday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m.&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">This special is a new production in a series of a conversation about Passover, one of the most important and most beloved holidays on the Jewish calendar. Larry </span>Josephson<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, a secular Jew who now wants to know more about the religion of his grandparents, asks Rabbi </span>Ismar<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Schorsch<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, to explain the meaning of Passover in a post-9/11 world. Dr. </span>Schorsch<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> tells Larry the story of Passover -- its history, rituals and foods, and the origins and structure of the </span>Seder<span style="line-height: 1.5;">. The music of Passover, sung by some of the best cantors and choirs in the world, is artfully woven in and out of the conversation. The music was chosen by Cantor Marcia </span>Tilchin<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, the Associate Producer. The program was developed and produced by Larry </span>Josephson<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, and edited and mixed by Peter </span>Zanger<span style="line-height: 1.5;">.</span></p><p> Sun, 13 Apr 2014 23:00:00 +0000 42498 at http://redriverradio.org Why This Night with Rabbi Ismar Schorsch
