Hi Zak:

In class today we went over Adam 1 and Adam 2 of the Soloveitchik as well as the general “feeling” of the book. We did not finish the Soloveitchik. We also watched a Bugs Bunny cartoon and discussed how arguments can be formed around it that represent the Jewish immigrant experience.
For homework, I told them to finish the Soloveitchik, watch some more Bugs Bunny and listen to Pete Seeger and try to connect it to the Hasia Diner readings. I also told  them that you might FWD along the Louis Kahn/architecture readings.
Best,
Maria
