Recommended listening

Nehemiah Gordon has taken to putting a recording of the weekly haftarah on his website each week.  He has a nice Israeli accent, good diction and is very expressive in his intonation.  You can find his reading at his website:

There was an old joke when I was a kid.  You had to set it up beforehand, that at the end of the joke, the folks in the know would laugh, leaving those who didn't know wondering about what was so funny.  Kind of like Hebrew.  You have to know what it says before you can understand it.

The joke went like this: Two elephants are sitting in a bathtub.  The first says to the second, "Please pass the soap."  The second says, "No soap, radio."

No joke: I have two radio interviews coming up.  Sunday, December 21, at 7:00 pm with DeVora Clark at and Thursday, January 1, at 11:00 am with Gene and Bonnie on the Thursday Morning show at

Both places are sources for Messianic music and teaching.  Which is not to say I like =all= the music and =all= the teaching.  Caveat emptor (not Hebrew).

Have a blessed season of light.
