The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia with Unorthodox Podcast Hosts
Center for Jewish History

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.
Ticket Info: $15 general; $12 seniors; $10 CJH/Partner members, students; $18 at the door
