About the author

Rabbi Yonah


  • For the Matisyahu concerts alot of those gigs listed on that link have him with a group called 311. in what respect is he going to perform there, that is, is he just going to do a song or 2 ?

  • If I had to construct a list of the Quintessential Gastronomic Delights of Jewish New York that everyone must have before they die, Kossar’s would be up there at the top of the list. (That list would not include Junior’s Cheesecake or H&H Bagels, FYI.) Spiritual experience, indeed.

  • Krakow, especially if the world’s greatest trumpet player, the Krakow native Tomasz Stanko, is playing at the Indigo jazz club.

  • Tom! Your bekius on the Polish jazz is very impressive. Really!
    Rabbi Yonah, you ment to add “Come to NY and learn some torah completely for free and GET a $1000 at the at the end of the month!”.

  • wow, when did rainbow gathering and the santa cruz shabbaton get so mainstream? i’m pretty sure benyomin wouldn’t be very happy about having the shabbaton publicized on the internet, and as far rainbow, that’s not really the type of event you would want to send your average nice, naive, Jewish college student to.
