Yeah, I know it’s a big picture, but it oughta get your attention.
If you’re in NYC for Yom Kippur, and interested in a ritual experience unlike any other, you’re invited to join Storahtelling at the Union Square Ballroom for “A Wake Up Call for the Soul”.
I’m personally excited for the Kol Nidre, which will include an exploration of the 1927 film, “The Jazz Singer”. As I just learned about this movie, the first words ever uttered in a “talkie”, if you will, were the words of the Kol Nidre, so it should be interesting to see how this is blended into the ritual.
After that, it’s a daylong mixture of ritual, theatre, music, comtemplation, text study and more, closing with a break-fast and cash bar at the Ballroom itself. While I would openly admit that I have an extreme pro-Storahtelling bias, my first real experience with them was during Yom Kippur last year, and the impact of it has not left me a year later. I encourage and welcome any and all of you to join us.
