The entry for “chutzpah” says it all: “What it takes to think you can write an encyclopedia of Jewish life.” Luckily, the hosts of the popular podcast Unorthodox had what it took and the result? The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia, a highly entertaining guide to all things Jewish and Jew-ish for Jews and non-Jews alike. Written by Stephanie Butnick, Liel Leibovitz, and Mark Oppenheimer, this new guide for the perplexed covers «Abraham to Zabar’s and everything in between.» Join Stephanie Butnick and Liel Leibovitz for the newish-Jewish story behind this concise compendium. Reception and book signing follow the program.
Presented by Center for Jewish History, American Jewish Historical Society, and the Jewish Book Council
