The Bluegrass Schmooze: A conversation with Mayor Craig Greenberg and former mayor Jerry Abramson

Laura Ellis

Hijinks and high holidays fill this premier episode of a brand new podcast from LPM.

Can a blanket facebook apology ever really do the spiritual atonement work of Yom Kippur? Which Louisville mayor used to sit in the chatty section of synagogue? Who are these two rabbis anyway, and why do they have a podcast?

Our debut episode is filled to the brim with the answers to all these questions, and more. Join Rabbi Ben Freed and Rabbi Shani Abramowitz for a deep dive into Tishrei, the first month of the Hebrew calendar. This episode also features Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg, and former Mayor Jerry Abramson, like you’ve never heard them before. They sit down with us together to reflect on how their Judaism shapes their approach to leadership, and share their hopes for the city in the new year.
