The Double Reading List: Jewish Student A Cappella Groups Unite!

This reading list also counts for Friday.

Can’t get enough Jewish a cappella? You’re in luck! Kol HaOlam, the first Jewish student a cappella competition, took place this past weekend, and some videos are here. [Gather the Jews]

Speaking of Jewish a cappella, here’s the Pesach offering from the Fountainheads. Rebuttal, Maccabeats?

And speaking of videos, here’s a cool one from (surprisingly) Aish retelling the Exodus story through social networks. The only part of this that sucks is the stupid, irrelevant and anachronistic part about world leaders blaming Israel. Come on.

One more video: remember the Angry Birds spoof of Israeli-Palestinian discourse? Here’s a similarly clever spoof of protests in the Arab world. Thanks to Marc Tracy for showing this to us.

The good news: Rutgers is paying Toni Morrison $30,000 to speak at commencement. The bad news: Rutgers is paying Snooki $32,000 to speak at the school. Time for students to pull a Wash. U. [NJ]

Should students intern without pay? [NYT]

A cause for optimism: young, nonviolent Palestinians. [Time]

Ben Murane attended both TribeFest and the J Street conference. Here’s what he has to say. [Jewschool]

Gary Rosenblatt tells Jewish organizations to stop using alcohol to engage students and young people. [JW]

European Jewish students love to conference. [JTA]
