Phil Goldman is a former stand-up, current attorney, and closet Torah scholar. Stay tuned for his weekly post in the A Random Walk with Rashi series every Thursday morning. (Note - on occasion, our group will take a break from our weekly meeting whether for Jewish holidays or those pesky life cycle events. On those in-between weeks we may improvise a bit for this column.)

We all have “those aunts from Chicago” in old photos. The ladies of “Chicago” the Musical are not YOUR aunts. Sensational, sexy, razzle dazzling. For just one week at the Ordway – don’t miss them.
Closing the door on Chapter 21, and on pace to align our study of the Akedah with its reading on Rosh Hashanah – our own veritable transit of Venus.
Join us as we leave Ishmael, and align our study group with the verses traditionally read on the High Holidays. Buckle up, place your biblical tray tables in their upright positions, and let’s begin!
“We pick things up where Hagar and her son Ishmael have been banished from Gerar, and have just plotzed from exhaustion in the desert,” begins Phil’s humorous summary of Rashi’s thoughts. Join him.
Parallel lives, chiastic stories, and wondering Jews.
