An artist-in-residence program has come together at the Kesher Zion Synagogue in Reading, Pennsylvania, Friday, November 9th through Saturday night, November 10, 2012.  I’ll be presenting a short musical program on Friday night to introduce some Yiddish songs of spiritual yearning, and then on Shabbat after services I’ll be launching a lively discussion on Jewish arts by presenting my lecture on “How We Got from There to Here.”  I plan to have some charming and surprising show-and-tell items, including my ‘Bas Mitzvah Zombie Bookends,’ a relic from 1963 that really looks like a Roz Chast nightmare.  (You don’t know the cartoonist Roz Chast?  Treat yourself and Google her, then go buy any issue of The New Yorker!) The weekend of Jewish arts will culminate in a concert with the Old World Folk Band with whom I have been performing since… 1985!  Unbelievable!
