David Benkof's Jewish Culture 101

Next: Rodgers & Hammerstein 101; Singer-Songwriters


Culture aficionado David Benkof helps hundreds of students examine American Jewish culture with a keen eye. What makes this photograph or poem or painting or Broadway musical so brilliant? What can you see the third time you look that you missed the first time?

You can observe the class in this one-minute video.
