Pub Church: a Rabbi and a Priest walk into the Pub to Talk

Join us for Pub Church this Sunday with Rabbi Neil Blumofe. We will meet at Scholz Garten from 5:30-7pm. Rabbi Neil is the Senior Rabbi at Agudas Achim, but you also probably know him for his work with Liner Notes and Views and Brews, his expertise on jazz music, his incredible renditions of Psalms, as a professor/author/academic, or as the former President of the Interfaith Action of Central Texas (IACT). A man who has seen and felt compassion across difference in personal experiences that span the globe, Blumofe, a Chicago native, claims “formative years in New Orleans, New York, Jerusalem, and Poznan, Poland;” and, of course, Austin.

We’ll meet in Scholz’ north dining room. Come early to get a seat and order food and drink. There is always plenty of free parking in the adjacent state parking garages, or on the street. As always, we close the evening with the chance to share communion through our unique invitation: “Before Jesus got turned into a religion, he wandered around, an itinerant rabbi, eating and drinking with sinners and outcasts.” All sinners and outcasts are welcome at the table…it’s great fun to be one!
