Q&A: The Jewsical Seder with B’nai Magnet with Russ Feder
Do you have your Passover plans locked down yet? Come spend the most miraculous Seder of your life with The Jewsical Seder with B'nai Magnet, Sunday March 25 at 6:15pm! We chatted with Russ Feder to get all the fun deets.
Is there something special about the chosen people that make them excellent musical improvisers?
Jews sing all the time. Too much, in fact. It’s how we spent the time wandering the desert for forty years.
What should the goys know about this show? Is there any terminology they can brush up on?
The show should be pretty inclusive! That being said, if anyone hears a funny-sounding word they don’t understand, it probably means either “messy” or “confusing”.
Is Frank Spitznagel actually a rabbi?
While he’s not ordained, he’s genuinely worked with Itzhak Perlman, which is close enough for us.
Tell us about B’nai Magnet’s mission statement.
B’nai Magnet is a group of musical improvisors hoping to share and heighten the joy of the holiday season with the masses. If people convert to Judaism as a result of seeing their shows, too, it’s a nice bonus.
Would you advise the audience to eat kosher for 24 hours before attending?
Absolutely. Leave your leavened bread at the door, folks. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
