While here at JewishDrinking.com, it is easy to feel pride in The Jewish Drinking Show as a unique podcast, but it’s not the only podcast out there on drinking and Judaism. As such, for the newest episode of The Jewish Drinking Show, we welcome Gabe Snyder and Amanda Weiss of Drinking and Drashing: Torah with a Twist, a weekly podcast. According to their website, Drinking and Drashing brings on “diverse guests who can speak to their own experiences, bringing their own Torah into Parashat Hashavuah — our weekly Torah Portions.”
Amanda K. Weiss is a third year rabbinical student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York City and serves as the rabbinic intern at Temple Shaaray Tefila in Westchester. A lover of community-building, engagement opportunities, and ridiculous puns, Amanda has built her career from a deep passion for making Judaism accessible, relevant, and resonant.
Gabe Snyder is a third year cantorial student at Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He is in his second year of serving as the student cantor at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire in Great Barrington, MA. Gabe is always looking for new ways to combine Jewish thought, humor, and community.
