Episode #88: “West Coast Jews, Jew-ish actors, Grammies gripe.”

Are Goldbrener and Rosen up to the task when new microphones raise the level of professionalism at (Is it) Good for  the Jews? Or will improved equipment just make Rosen’s Grammy awards  gripes more difficult to dismiss? Consider this as you ponder this week’s question, merely:

 Was western U.S. migration good the Jews?

Have those of us residing in the western states sacrificed our Jewish identity in our quest to move beyond tribalism and embrace the California (or Oregon, Washington, etc.) Dream? Even in Los Angeles, where Jews are more like Jews, can westerners be taken seriously by the “Eastern establishment?”


For some Jews, this is an irresistible scene.
