To the author: You're a '12. Stop acting like this is a monumental change in your life after you've only been at this College for a few months.

Thanks, I'm aware I've only been at this college a few months. Notice that I did not whine or complain in the post or express disbelief. I merely remarked that it was "the end of an era," (because Blitz has been in use for decades) without any further comment.

May I suggest you quit reading stuff into posts that simply isn't there?

Well put, Sterling!

@anonymous: it is a monumental change in the life of the College, if not the life of Sterling. He reported the facts and put his name to it, unlike the rest of us. If the shift takes 18 months to implement, as it probably will, then it will be the end of an era for him too.

Going to blitz was a monumental change. Leaving it behind is not so monumental in comparison.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Like many children wow power levelingof any faith Roger Bennett and Josh Kun found the religious instruction of their youth boring and irrelevant.But wow powerlevelingsomething must have seeped in because decades later while collecting kitschy Jewish album coverswow leveling they uncovered musical and cultural gems that could have redeemed Hebrew School.Their discoveries are recorded in a new book "And You wow power levelingShall Know Us By the Trail of Our Vinyl," -- a compilation of Jewish record albums from the 1940s through the 1970s."My frustrationwow powerleveling with Hebrew School was that it didn't speak to who I was or who I wanted to be. It didn't engage with life outside of Hebrewtales of pirates gold School," said Kun.One of their finds, a mambo-style 1959 album called "Bagels and Bongos", might have spiced things up in synagogue,silkroad gold while "Corned-Beef Confucius," by Max Asnas from the 1950s, could have provided some laughs.But Bennett and Kun insist the book is more than a nostalgic look at Jewish popular culture. It is a point of departure into a future silk road goldthat will be enriched by an infusion of the past.Q: Why a book all about records?Bennett: "Everyday objects tell stories that aremmporpg more powerful than people think at first glance. We can use objects to frame questions to make people think about online gameswho they are, what they're inheriting and what it means to them."Kun: "People look at this and say, 'Why does this matter?' Our work hasage of conan gold been to tell people why. One of the most fun things about this project has been translating this love into terms people age conan goldcan understand."Q: How did you go about collecting all of these records?Kun: "The work we've done with this music up to this point has been done as a small nonprofit, a labor of love. We devoted as much time as we could, taking weekends, stopping by age of conan power levelinggarage sales and meeting with musicians."Bennett: "We do feel a sense of urgency because these people are passing away."Q: Who was an exceptionally surprising and satisfying find?Bennett: "Jon Yune. Only in America could a Korean immigrant do a record of Hebrew and Yiddish songs. He still closes every one of his Vegas shows with "Exodus" because it not only reminds him of his relationship to Jewish music. He sees in Jewish history a parallel to the suffering of his own people."Q: What didaoc gold this book teach you about post-war Jewish popular culture?Bennett: "When we thought of Jewish music we thought of the holy trinity of Barry (Manilow), Barbra (Streisand) and Neil (Diamond). But we discovered a whole world. That framed one giant question, which was why had we never heard of any of this stuff? What's left out is so compelling. Ultimately this is aoc power levelingnot a book about music. aoc levelingIt's about how four generations lived in America diablo 2 cd keyand using the albums to tell history."Q: So putting this book together put your own Jewish identity in a different light?Bennett: "This book began by us diablo 2 cd keyjust collecting orphaned vinyl and then trying to track down as many of the performers as we can find. We have found role models in talking to them. daoc goldI felt like neither of us had a friend under 80!daoc plat I've found Jewish role models that are fascinating, extremely compelling, articulate -- that I wish I'd had at Hebrew School."
