AUDIO: Paul Wieder Interviews Rick Recht
Armed with only an acoustic guitar, Rick Recht set out to conquer one of the most difficult foes in the Jewish world— the apathy of the youth. He travels the country, from congregation to camp to concert hall, singing his uplifting brand of rock and roll. He tramsmits the words of the Torah, along with an appreciation for and enthusiasm about them. Recht will be performing two concerts for JUF, both on May 16. At 10 a.m. is a PJ Library pajama party for kids at SPACE in Evanston. And at 2:30 is Mitzvah Rock, a concert for teens and their families — co-presented by JUF's TOV MTV and by NFTY— at Temple Beth El in Northbrook.
