In honor of Passover, WNYC celebrates with two special programs which will air Sunday, March 24, 2013.
A Passover Special: Why This Night?
Airs Sunday, March 24 at 7am on AM 820
Larry Josephson, a secular Jew who now wants to know more about the religion of his grandparents, asks Rabbi Ismar Schorsch to explain the meaning of Passover. Dr. Schorsch tells Larry the story of Passover--its history, rituals and foods, and the origins and structure of the Seder. The music of Passover, sung by some of the best cantors and choirs in the world, is woven in and out of the conversation.
