Here it is! The big one! In episode 27.3 of OMGWTFBIBLE, David Tuchman and Rachel Rose Reid read what everyone knows as The Ten Commandments. And it’s… interesting. Sure, the commandments themselves are pretty impressive, but the laws that follow them? Not so much. And are there even really 10 commandments? It all depends on how you break it down. Listen to the third part of “Yitro” here!
In episode 27.2, David is joined by Rabbi Leah Jordan to read the second third of Parshat “Yitro.” Sadly, not much happens this week plot-wise. God spends most of it repeating the same directions over and over, preparing the people to receive his all-important law. But that doesn’t mean David and Rabbi Jordan don’t have a lot of fun dissecting all the goofiness—and discussing Judaism, God, the Reform movement in the U.K. and the U.S., growing up in Kansas City, and much more. Listen to it all here!
Well, pip-pip cheerio! Back in December, David Tuchman went to the Limmud UK conference at the University of Warwick in England to record OMGWTFBIBLE with a slew of wonderful guests and did his best to avoid doing his terrible British accents on tape.
This time around, in episode 27.1, David is joined by Kevin Sefton, Limmud chair. Together, they read the first third of Parshat “Yitro,” what in the world Limmud is, why in the world Yitro pops in for this little story and never appears again, and whether his legacy was worth it. Listen to it all here!
It’s Sunday, right? I just took a red-eye flight from New York to the Limmud Conference at the University of Warwick in England and I have no idea what time it is. Or what day it is.
No matter what’s going on, I’m currently at Limmud and I’m doing a show tonight. And tomorrow night. And the night after. And all three of those episodes will be hitting the Internet starting next Thursday (1/8).
I’m very excited to announce that I’m going to be doing a live episode of OMGWTFBIBLE from Warwick, England at this year’s Limmud Conference sometime between December 28, 2014 to January 1, 2015. Limmud is an international organization dedicated to fostering new approaches to Judaism and I am honored to be among their presenters.
There are still a ton of details to work out, including the actual date of the show and the guest, but I can’t wait to bring OMGWTFBIBLE to the other side of the Atlantic.
Oh, and I kinda sorta need your help to pay for my airfare. So please donate at the Indiegogo!
UPDATE: I don’t need your help getting to Limmud because they are a very generous organization and are paying for my transportation! Oops! I don’t know how I got that wrong! Sorry for the confusion, everyone!
Still, if you’re going to Limmud UK, please come to see me live! It’s going to be very cool!
