The Marshall Portnoy Show

Fast Day to Fest Day - - Tisha B’Av, Tu B’Av, And Lori Modern Matchmaker!We have entered the Nine Days preceding the sad period of mourning for the destruction of the Temple, and you will hear Lamentations chanted in two traditions on the show. But that was not the end of our people - - far from it. The renewal and reinvention of Judaism after the Exile is mirrored in a small sense by the little-noticed observance of the 15th of Av, when young women were enjoined to dance. Love comes alive just six days after mourning! Yiddishist Rita Ratson will join us, of course, and we'll have some great (and surprising!) musical selections.And who better to talk about love than Lori Modern Matchmaker! She will take your questions on dating, mating, manners and morals.
