Nice Jewish Boys to Invite to Your Seder

Last year, we discovered Tablet Magazine, a Jewish magazine covering all aspects of the modern Judaic experience, and it has, along with it, a host of very funny, just-right-of-PC podcasts. We mention this, of course, because Passover begins this evening.

Whether one is Jewish and preparing a seder, Jewish-adjacent and attending, or simply loves wonderful auditory theater, we think everyone should listen tonight to King of the Egg Cream, a romp of a story in which Harry Dolowich rises from very little to control the egg cream syrup market in the city in the 1920s, the format itself—a radio play—also drawing from the era in which it’s set.

Now that we’ve set a stage for an imaginary seder, we must seat the table. Who joins us tonight? These eight wonderful men. Here, their place cards. (And in case you want more, here’s our very-first Nice Jewish Boys list.)
