As a Jew, I always look for exciting and fun new ways to bond with my people. I’m not saying temple-organized parties are lame, butâ€”no, they really kind of are. That’s why I’m intrigued by the idea of the Contemporary Jewish Museum‘s Oy Vey! Thursdays. Of course, you don’t have to be Jewish to attend. We’re a very open-minded group of people!
Oy Vey! [that’s Jewish for “holy crap!”] Thursdays take place the first Thursday of every month at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. Guests mingle in the museum’s Jews on Vinyl listening lounge, which the website describes as a “50’s-style, suburban living room where you can listen to the once loved, now forgotten audio gems of Jewish-American music history.” Um, awesome. Not to mention the Manischewitz shooters. (For those not in the know, Manischewitz makes a kosher wine that tastes like grape juice with a tiny bit of alcohol. It’s amazing.)
This Thursday comedian Nato Green will give a performance inspired by great Jewish satirists like Allan Sherman. (He’s the guy who wrote “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah,” if that rings any bells.) Tickets are likely to sell out, so buy yours in advance through the website. The program runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Nato Green’s set begins at 7 p.m. See you there!
