The Y is delighted to welcome back DJ Robert Drake to the night’s festivities – the local superstar DJ will spin an ’80s-flavored, retro dance party. The WXPN-FM DJ and Kids Corner producer has been spinning the successful Sex Dwarf new wave dance party since 2003. Drake was honored in the Philadelphia City Paper readers’ poll for “Best DJ in Philadelphia” and “Best Dance Party in Philly” (for Sex Dwarf). Drake was also named “Best DJ in Philly” in Philadelphia Magazine in 2014.

Fun with Fermentation! @ The Gershman Y
Apr 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join the Jewish Farm School for this hands-on fermentation workshop and learn how to preserve your harvest while unlocking nutrients, adding flavor, and tapping into Jewish cultural food ways. Together we’ll make a basic sauerkraut and some more innovative ferments, and explore the role fermented foods have played in Jewish communities around the globe.

Presented in partnership with Feinstein Center for American Jewish History.
