“Oh Sister” – Greeting the Sabbath Queen with Bob Dylan

Jewish lore speaks of the Sabbath as a union of two star-struck partners, whose love animates the worship that welcomes the Sabbath and carries us on the wings of song through Saturday night.

Purim is the season of masks, of extremes, of stories and rituals that challenge our day-to-day in order to teach us something new – just like rock and roll and just like Bob Dylan. Scholar and writer Dr. Stephen Daniel Arnoff will share a vision of masks and deeper understandings at the nexus of the wisdom of Purim and good old Bob Dylan.
