This week, we are thrilled to have on our friend, comedian, and rabbi Menachem Silverstein. He starts off with a beautiful story of how his neighbors came together after a Jewish home was broken into on his street. Menachem shares about what it was like growing up in a religious family and how he started his career in the entertainment industry. He shares the meet-cute story about meeting his wife on the subway and gives insight into issues that come about in dating in the religious world. The girls inquire about how Menachem has dealt being in the comedy world with the rise of antisemitism and how he handles comedians with opposing views. He also shares about what it’s like to raise Jewish kids during a time when being visibly Jewish can feel scary. He also talks about his journey within screenwriting from avoiding writing Jewish stories to realizing that it’s important to write what you know. The girls end with a game of ‘Kosher or Treif.”
