Sea of Reeds poses some curious questions. For instance: why would a staunch, lifelong atheist suddenly decide to go to Israel at the age of 52 to stage his own bar mitzvah? And what in the world does playing the oboe have to do with the Book of Exodus? You probably don't know the answers to either of those questions just yet, but in this brand-new comedy that is part monologue and part musical, Josh Kornbluth will take to the stage to shed some light on these offbeat topics. With an orchestra, his rabbi and his oboe in tow, Kornbluth delivers a unique night of entertainment with Sea of Reeds. Learn More
How do we know what’s valuable? If the most valuable things are priceless, then why do we say “everything has its price?” In a transaction, does the monetary price capture all the worth or is there more left to interpret? And how do we put a value on being Jewish? Distinguished sociologist Robert N. Bellah, best known for his ground breaking Habits of the Heart, Rabbi David Ellenson, President of Hebrew Union College, UpStart’s Toby Rubin and Stanford University’s Ari Kelman join in a provocative conversation about the inherent value of Jewish community beyond the dollar prices of Hebrew Day Schools, synagogues, camps and philanthropy.
