A Trip to Jewish Prague, A Talk With Cantor Todd Kipnis & Rabbi’s Favorite Holiday (Shhh!)

Rabbi Mosbacher shares his adventures in Prague with a group of Temple Shaaray Tefila teens, including exploring Prague’s Jewish Quarter (and its 1,000 years of Jewish history), the moving power of visiting the Theresienstadt concentration camp in Terezin, Czech Republic, and an unexpected bright spot visitors can find there. In the interview, Cantor Kipnis reveals his favorite genre of secular music and favorite secular singer (bet you can’t guess!), the exact moment he knew he wanted to be a cantor, and why he loves living in New York City. Rabbi Mosbacher divulges his favorite holiday (something rabbis don’t often do!), shares a great podcast you’ll want to check out, and sets out a challenge that, if undertaken, might just enrich your life.
