    By Dr. Afshine Emrani

    November 24, 2014 | 12:21 pm

    Watching my kids enjoy indoor rock climbing, I realized a few lessons that paralleled Robert Fulghum’s famous sermon.  Typically, how we play is how we see life.

    1- There is no competition; everyone is rooting for you to get to the top.

    2- Everyone is a student and a teacher;...

    To describe Yoni Rechter in one paragraph would be impossible. Rechter is a brilliant musician and composer. His musical style, combining Jazz, Blues and classical Rock, created many songs so beautiful, they make the listener speechless. When I listen to Rechter's melodies, which...

    Five years ago, at Sadie Sandler’s first birthday party, at the estate of her father, Adam Sandler, filmmaker Adam Shankman was sitting in a plastic toddler’s chair when he was startled by another guest who sat down beside him.

    September 14, 2011 | 11:13 am

    Luke Top and Lewis Pesacov of Fool’s Gold are surprised they don’t have a larger Jewish fan base. Most of the songs on the band’s 2009 self-titled debut are in Hebrew, vocalist Top was born in Israel, and earlier this year the band played Jewlicious, a music festival for Jewish...

    April 11, 2011 | 2:07 pm

    What started out as a surprise of a lifetime, quickly turned into a XXX porn show for many children and one particular fifth-grader.

    I like to think that I am a pretty fun parent, but when my husband and I surprised our eleven-year-old with tickets to Thirty Seconds to Mars concert,...

    One afternoon in 1989, Ricky Leigh Mensh hid out in his car in a parking garage in Bethesda, Md., paranoid after a five-day cocaine and booze spree.

    The Shondes live in Seattle at the Crocodile Club, 12/5/07


    It is no easy feat to yell melodiously, but the Jewish rock quartet, The Shondes, has achieved just that. The screams on their new album, "The Red Sea," sound ancient and somewhat cantorial, piping in from the Old Testament to...

  • Comedy singer drawn to Jewish thought—but not shul

    By George Robinson

    December 13, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    It is commonplace that the best comedy is essentially serious. Of course, clichés often have an underlying truth, so maybe that explains why Rob Tannenbaum, one half of the comedy-music duo, Good for the Jews, playing at the Knitting Factory on Dec. 14, is both a very funny guy, and...

    Saturday the 9th



    Canadian music maker Socalled has drawn from so many different influences to create his new album, "Ghettoblaster," that it's impossible to fit it into any genre. And why would you want to? The ever-inventive artist combines rock, hip-hop, funk, Bulgarian, klezmer...

    By Robert David Jaffee

    October 26, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Mixing punk rock and opera may be about as heretical as it gets, yet that is precisely what Julien Nitzberg, librettist and lyricist of "The Beastly Bombing," now playing at the Steve Allen Theater, has done.

    Despite being the grandson of Austrian composer Hans Knauer, who...

  • P. F. Sloan:  does he still believe we’re on the ‘Eve of Destruction’?

    By Steven Rosen

    September 21, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Eve of Destruction," the famous folk-rock protest hit from 1965, isn't usually regarded as a specifically Jewish song. Or even a religious one, for that matter.
     
    It's a litany of anguished complaints about the problems of the temporal world of the time -- civil rights marchers...

    "No thought control."

    The famed lyrics from rock band Pink Floyd's much beloved "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" make for a powerful statement regardless of context. Scrawled last week in red paint on a concrete segment of Israel's security fence in the Palestinian town of...

    Here's a strange coincidence: Both my doctor and my rabbi share the same leisure pursuit: They are passionate about attending rock concerts. U2, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen -- If they perform, my good doctors of the body and the soul will attend. They both say it's their...

  • For Musicians, It’s Good to Be Labeled

    May 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    When Chasidic reggae-rapper Matisyahu sold 350,000 units of his new album, "Youth," in the first weeks after its release, he redrew the rule book for marketing Jewish music.
