How Does It Feel? Dylan’s Many Masks and What It Means for Us

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.

Class after Kiddush luncheon/1pm(featuring Dylan’s own Heaven’s Door whiskey!), Beth Israel
