You've probably seen Dancing With the Stars. But Dancing With the Rabbis? We've got to be kidding, right? Wrong!
On April 4, five of Los Angeles’ most prominent rabbis – Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Rabbi Mark Borovitz, Rabbi Elliot Dorff, Rabbi Nina Feinstein, and Rabbi Zoe Klein – will dance with their partners at the Gindi Auditorium of the American Jewish University's Whizin Center For Continuning Education. Ticket holders will have the chance to vote for the winner, who will receive the mirror-ball trophy and a generous donation to the charity of their choice.
The contestants have been practicing the Fox Trot, Cha Cha, Swing, Hustle, and Tango with their partners and each one is determined to win the top prize.
Also attending this Los Angeles event will be Karina Smirnoff and Louis Van Amstel from Dancing with the Stars. Following the show, there will be hors d’ouvres and wine, live music and dancing. For more information or to purchase tickets ($100 for sponsors and $60 for patrons), please contact Caroline Cohen at 310.440.1246 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also buy tickets online from the American Jewish University's website for this event.
