Shmaltz It Up!
Not doing anything Monday at 7:30? In D.C.? Come by the Historic Sixth & I Synagogue, where a bunch of writerly Jews will be telling tales of great jewwy Jewishness. I’ll be one of them. Self-indulgent? Certainly, but there’ll be true-life-tales of Jewishness and foreign travels. And what a cast! Emily Yoffe from Slate, NPR’s Alix Spiegel, speechwriter David Litt, Karen Sommer Shalett of D.C. Magazine, People’s District’s Danny Harris, the exceptionally talented Amy Saidman of SpeakeasyDC — how am I going to compete? Who knows, but stop by and say hi and enjoy yourself, yeah?
