Every month, OMGWTFBIBLE snags some pretty great guests. But there’s never enough time in the podcast to discuss everything our guests our up to. In our Meet The Guest series, you can get to know our guests a little better than you will on the show.
Episode 19: Rabbi Joshua Yuter
Rabbi Joshua Yuter in no stranger to controversy. He serves in an official capacity as the rabbi of the Stanton Street Shul, a traditional synagogue that has stood in New York’s Lower East Side since 1913 and will host the recording of episode 19. Ordained in 2003 at Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, Rabbi Yuter is definitely an actual Orthodox rabbi. He also went to Yeshivat Har Etzion, a place I dropped out of.
Behold! Episode 18 of OMGWTFBIBLE with Ari Mandel is now available!!
This episode was recorded at A Gathering of the Tribes.
There are so many ways to listen to Episode 18!
What did you think of this month’s episode? What are your thoughts on Onanism? Did you have a weird experience with Rabbis and masturbation (hopefully not at the same time!)? Have anything you’d like to add on the whole Potiphar story? Let me know in the comments!
Hey, you! You know, that novel you’ve been working on for years? That beautiful work of art you threw your blood, sweat, and tears into? That business you built with your BARE HANDS? (more…)
Have you seen this? It is a video of Zach Braff doing an ad for YU. It is very odd. How did this happen? Why is this here? Is there a God or the universe as random and capricious as we thought it was?
Not satisfied with “because Internet,” Tablet did some digging:
Yeshiva University hasn’t taken credit for it, but it looks like they or one of their supporters contributed $500 to the Kickstarter campaign for Braff’s upcoming movie. The prize offered by the actor for such a generous donation? “I’ll say or do pretty much whatever you want for twenty seconds. I will send you the mpeg file so you can upload to YouTube, play at parties, or send to friends. I will be your dancing monkey.” Or in this case, mascot.
This month, Ari Mandel (aka Rachmuna Litzlon) will join me as we read about Yehudah’s sexual misadventures in Timna and Yoseph’s sexual misadventures in Egypt.

That’s it, folks! Time to give up on this podcast. Because there is a pope made of chocolate. There is no reason to practice any religion or to doubt anymore. Because we’ve found it. Chocolate Christianity. The one true faith.
Here’s the full video of yesterday’s creation vs. science debate! Oh joy!
The American Bible Society has put together a list of the most and least “Bible-Minded” cities in the country. Topping the list is Chattanooga, Tennessee. The study also found that the Bible isn’t so well-loved in bigger cities. Only three of the top 25 Bible-loving areas encompassed more than a million households.
What about New York, where OMGWTFBIBLE happens? That’s all the way down at 89, only slightly more into the Bible than hedonistic Las Vegas. But you wouldn’t know it from seeing OMGWTFBIBLE live!
