Musical guests closing out the first half of Good Shabbos Nebraska Season 1

As the new year approaches we are getting ready to close out the first half of season one of Good Shabbos Nebraska.

And what a season it has been so far!  To recap:

Shmuley Boteach spoke with us about suffering, Michael Jackson, Jesus, and sex.
Jonathan Rosenbaum gave us an archaeological tour of Avraham's travels.
Jonathan  Adelman briefed us Syria, Iran, and the Middle East.
Meir Bar Ilan introduced us to ancient Jewish magic, witchcraft, and numerology.
Moshe Goldfeder told us about polygamy and robots.
Boris Gulko gave us first hand accounts of his life as one of the most celebrated Russian Refusenik.
Avital Chizhik took on Amos Oz and Vladamir Putin.
Sheba Mason had us rolling in the aisles.
Sabrina Thomas informed us about Christian Zionism.
Josh Yuter challenged everything we thought we knew about being Jewish.
Sjimon Den Hollander spoke to us about speaking with Muslims.

Every week has been great conversations and great Torah.  Good Shabbos Nebraska is doing better than I ever could have imagined.  New people are coming, and our regulars are coming more often!  And people are sponsoring some great kiddushes for after shul!

This is the future of shul!  Stay tuned for a Good Shabbos Nebraska tribute show at a shul near you!

The next two weeks we have a line up of incredible Jewish musical talent!

This week we have the Potash Twins.  If you have not heard of these guys yet, you will very soon.  Adeev and Ezra Potash, two local Omaha boys and identical twins, have taken the New York Jazz scene by storm!  They have already played with some of the biggest names in jazz and their following is growing stronger by the day!

This Shabbos we are going to talk with them about being Jewish celebrities, challenges and opportunities, and they are going to tell us about TWINTUITION - there special powers that they say makes them a great music team.  It was the subject of their recent Ted Talk!

Next week we have the one and only - LENNY SOLOMON!!!!  Lenny Solomon just may be the greatest Jewish musician ever!  He started the band Shlock Rock in the mid 0s and since then he has inspired literally hundreds of thousands of Jewish kids throughout the world!

I am a huge Lenny fan, I have been since my bar mitzvah.  I cannot wait to have a chance to interview him in person on Good Shabbos Nebraska!

In addition, he is going to be bringing Etan G!  The Jewish Rapper!!!

It is going to be an unforgettable start studded two weeks and will take us with a bang into our mid winter Hiatus!

When we come back in February we have an incredible line up of great guests, EVERY WEEK!

So don't miss a single episode of Good Shabbos Nebraska - EVERY SHABBOS ONLY AT BETH ISRAEL SYNAGOGUE - WHERE EVERY SHABBOS IS A SHABBATON!

  1. The ratings look promising for an honorable mention Emmy award for best talk show excused by law from filming due to religious reasons
