The entry for chutz­pah” says it all: What it takes to think you can write an ency­clo­pe­dia of Jew­ish life.” And though it may have tak­en a lot of chutz­pah, the hosts of Unortho­dox—the lead­ing Jew­ish pod­cast around the world — have cre­at­ed a book unlike any oth­er. After all, in what oth­er ref­er­ence guide could you find infor­ma­tion on the Drey­fus Affair” right below Dresch­er, Fran”?
Join Stephanie But­nick and Liel Lei­bovitz, two of the authors and pod­cast hosts, for a delight­ful­ly irrev­er­ent romp” through Jew­ish his­to­ry and cul­ture! Take the micro­phone, ask a ques­tion, and jump into the con­ver­sa­tion as But­nick and Lei­bovitz dis­cuss their deeply enter­tain­ing — and high­ly edu­ca­tion­al – new book, The Newish Jew­ish Ency­clo­pe­dia. You won’t be dis­ap­point­ed. To quote the book itself, It’s a feast of knowl­edge. Pull up a chair; grab a pick­le. Trust me: you’re going to want to stay awhile.” Recep­tion and book sign­ing fol­low the pro­gram.
