gsn_omahaThere is something interesting happening in Omaha Nebraska, and it isn’t Warren Buffet offer to pay the person with a perfect NCAA Final 4 grid.

Beth Israel of Omaha Nebraska has removed its pulpit lectern and added a talk show desk, seats for guests, and a backdrop montage of Omaha. It is “Late Night” and “The Late Show” meets Shabbos. Rabbi Jonathan Gross has been the Rabbi at Beth Israel for a decade holds court like Letterman. He opens with a monologue, and has guests to discuss issues or the parshah. The shul used to attract 70 worshipers on a Saturday morning, and is now getting 250.

On recent Shabbats this year, GSN (Good Shabbos Nebraska) featured a Sephardic Shabbat with Sephardi Chazzan Rabbi Moshe Tessone, the Director of The Sephardic Community Program at Yeshiva University, as its guest; aa youth Shabbat with Mexico City-born Rabbi Israel Lashak from the NCSY; Iowa Shabbos with Des Moines UK-born born Rabbi Elib Bolel; and Bird Shabbat featuring Rabbi Chaim Loike, an expert on birds, the Philby Partridge, zoology, and kosher poultry.
