This past December I was asked to sing at a Chanukah party for Hillel at Harvard University. I was invited by one of my former Bar Mitzvah students. He's a wonderful fellow (from a great family) and he plays in the Hillel Klezmer Band! My gosh, how could I say no?
I had no idea what to expect. I even brought my Jewish comedy videos with me just in case I needed help getting things going. It turned out to be an incredible evening of singing and shmoozing. Someone was snapping photos the whole time. I recently got emails from folks saying they saw me in the Spring 2008 Harvard Hillel Journey (a quite lovely and glossy publication.) Well, I finally got a copy and saw this overly generous article. You can get the pdf here. (And the entire issue of the Journey is here.)
As it turned out, I didn't need the comedy videos. Maybe next time.
