WEDU highlights Jewish life, love and humor in September

Sholem Aleichem Sholem Aleichem PBS station WEDU is sprinkling its schedule with Jewish flavor this September. Here are some of the upcoming documentaries to keep an eye out for this fall, from food to fiddles:

A diverse range of Jewish families celebrate the importance of food as a cultural connection to the past in Hugs and Knishes: A Celebration of our Jewish Foods and Traditions. Snippets of home life, holiday gatherings, humor and history come together like the ingredients of a favorite grandmother’s Shabbat chicken soup. This airs on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 2:30 p.m.

The Kol Nidre, the most sacred prayer in Judaism that begins its holiest day of Yom Kippur, is the topic of 8 Voices Sing Kol Nidre. The program tells the Kol Nidre story impressionistically through the tales and anecdotes of those who have been touched by it. It airs on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 3:30 p.m. and on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 1 p.m.

Scene from Hugs and Knishes Scene from Hugs and Knishes The collected stories of Sholem Aleichem (1859- 1916) became the basis for Fiddler on the Roof, but there is much more to the author’s life than a Broadway melody, and it is shared in Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness. In a time of great fear, Aleichem inspired a new, modern Jewish identity through laughter. The film includes rarely seen photographs, interviews with Sholem’s granddaughter, Bel Kauffman. It airs on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 4:30 p.m. and on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 2 p.m. on WEDU PBS.

Additional broadcasts of this film on WEDU+ are scheduled for 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 22 at 9:30 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 23 at 7 a.m.
