Dancing With The Rabbis

Oh man, I want to go to this so bad. Who wants to buy me a ticket?

Mixed-dancing is one of the big no-nos of Orthodox Judaism, but not of Conservative Judaism as this email from AJU (the West Coast Conservative seminary) shows:

Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson will be dancing the Foxtrot with Tina Mayer

Rabbi Mark Borovitz will be dancing the Cha Cha with Mimi Karsh

Rabbi Elliot Dorff will be dancing the Swing with Brittany Palmer

Rabbi Nina Feinstein will be dancing the Hustle with Forrest Walsh

Rabbi Zoe Klein will be dancing the Tango with Daniel Ponickly

Just when you thought you’ve seen it all…

For one magical evening, join five of LA’s most prominent rabbis as they cha cha their way to stardom. The grand winner, chosen by you, will receive the coveted mirrored-ball trophy and a generous donation to a charity of their choice. Not only will you enjoy the rabbis dancing, but also be treated to behind-the-scenes practice footage, and a special performance by Karina Smirnoff & Louis Van Amstel of Dancing with the Stars.
