Jewish culture on Kickstarter, today

A couple of interesting Kickstarter projects of Jewish interest.

Makings – Songs from Tillie Olsen’s Journals is a musical project created by the grandson of the left-wing Jewish author of, most famously, Tell Me a Riddle. (Background info from Jewish Currents, Jewish Womens Archive, and Wikipedia.) Downloads of the album start at $10.

 

Aliyah Le Berlin is a documentary of Jews — mostly Israelis — who have settled in Germany in recent years. But act fast: As of this writing, the project has only 9 hours to raise $5000.

 

Take-Away by YTheater Project is a play by a joint Palestinian-Israel theater group in Jerusalem that “unearths how we trash one another. In a dump on a sacred hill, garbage harvesters inspire hope.”

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
