Hearing Jewish

By Aaron Bisman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2010

The author, founder of JDub records, discusses the disengagement with American Jewish institutions, and disenchantment with stilted preconceptions of what "Jewish music" means, that drove him and his co-founder to create a record company dedicated to producing new Jewish music. He discusses the first eight years of the company's existence, and its explorations in redefining what it means for music to be Jewish.
