This past week we celebrated Lag Ba’Omer (5782) – marking two years of On This Day in Jewish History / Two Tall Jews Show  While it sounds cliché, it is hard to comprehend the 2 year anniversary of OTDJH. When everything we do involves outlining history’s process, it can be odd to alter our thinking to focus on ours. This whole process has been an exercise in turning one’s passion into an obligation. So much of this journey has been about appreciating that process. Thank you for being here with us every step of the way. We are excited about what’s next and excited to say we are only just getting started.

On today’s show we are pleased to ALSO have Rabbi Steve Leder of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles. A graduate of Northwestern, Rabbi Leder received a Masters in Hebrew Letters in 1986 and his Rabbinical Ordination from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati the following year. In 1987 he joined the Wilshire Boulevard Temple and has served as the congregation’s senior rabbi since 2003. He is the author of four books and most recently, “The Beauty of What Remains: How Our Greatest Fear Becomes Our Greatest Gift” which was published in January. His writings have appeared in the LA Times, The New York Times, and the Jewish Journal. In addition to his rabbinical duties, he has taught Homiletics at Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles and is a regular contributor to television news programs.
