Posted by Joel H. on August 15, 2008

It’s impossible to summarize CAJE 33 in a few pages, let alone a few lines. Still, here are just a handful of my personal CAJE 33 highlights. In loose chronological order:


  • Ellen Dreskin’s Friday night service.
  • Richard Freund’s Shabbat sessions.
  • Tisha B’av kinot.
  • Bicycling on the Lake Champlain causeway.
  • Storahtelling‘s opening.
  • Monday’s Roundtable Fishbowl.
  • Macy Hart‘s keynote.
  • Drinking cups made from corn.
  • Manny Gold’s keynote.
  • Dynamic conversations over lunch.
  • My father Larry Hoffman‘s plenary session
  • The beautiful UVM campus.
  • Ed Feinstein‘s stories.
  • Doug Mishkin‘s music.

In Focus: Six Violins, Three Celli, an Oboe, a Piano, and Doug

Posted by Joel H. on July 23, 2008

As you may know, Grammy-Award winner Doug Cotler is planning a gala final program for Wednesday night at CAJE 33. I don’t know exactly what he has in mind, but I just learned that he’s asked for two sets of three violinists each, three cellists, and an oboist. Add to that Doug’s master piano playing and our other terrific in-house musicians, and it’s going to be quite a night!
