Step inside a fascinating world of Jews who relate to their Jewishness through the vehicle of punk. Why did punk—a subculture and music style characterized by a rejection of established norms—appeal to Jews? How did Jews who were genuinely struggling with their Jewish identity find ways to express it through punk rock?
Michael Croland will give a multimedia presentation based on his book, Oy Oy Oy Gevalt! Jews and Punk.
Na Nach Oi! (featuring Yishai Romanoff of Moshiach Oi!) will perform acoustic renditions of Jewish punk songs.
