The Marshall Portnoy Show

Water has profound significance for the Jewish people. It’s one of the first words in the Bible, and it’s the subject of modern miracle-making in Israel. With the help of Lori Cooper, we’ll explore the ritual use of water in the “mikveh”, and Andrew Lavin of American Associates Ben Gurion University of the Negev will give us insights into the essential role of water in Israel and the Near East. Chef Jane even gets in on the act, using water to make a refreshing (and delicious!) pre-summer cocktail, and Rita Ratson adds a Yiddish “twist”. Lots of great music, including that of a famous Jewish instrumentalist, our June 5 birthday boy!
