Civil Rights, Shlomo Carlebach, and Allen Ginsberg's lover - An interview with Joe Gutman

Keeping Jewish Weird show

Summary: In this episode of Keeping Jewish Weird, we discuss some of the feedback we’ve received on social and our thoughts about Jewish identity as followers of Yeshua. Our friend Joe also joined us to share some very interesting life experiences he had while on the forefront of the counter-culture and civil rights movements in San Francisco during the sixties. We also talk about his time spent with the Chabad community in Brooklyn, his family’s experiences as Holocaust survivors, how he defines Jewish identity, as well as our responsibility as Jews to stand up for groups of people who are oppressed and underrepresented in society. At the end of the episode we asked our listeners to take part in something to do with Jewish culture. Our recommendations are to visit a local Jewish deli or read Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon. As always, if you’re a new listener to Keeping Jewish Weird, we would absolutely love to hear from you and find out what you think about the show.
