#DYK that April 30th is Hairstylist Appreciation Day? By practicing social distancing, you may not have been able to get a haircut in a while. Times like this only makes this holiday even more important! Reach out to your hairstylist to schedule a future appointment or buy a gift card from your favorite salon to spend later. These local businesses need your support, and we could all use a fresh style. From the JMM collections: Moishe Brull cries as he gets his first haircut in 1991. Don’t worry buddy, you’re going to look so great! From the Baltimore Jewish Times. JMM 2012.054.092.011.

"Magnified, sanctified ...." (in Aramaic: Yitgadal v’yitkadash) are part of the lyrics of You Want it Darker, the album released by Leonard Cohen in 2016. Cohen knew his death was near and included his own Kadish in the album's title song and invited a cantor and a synagogue choir to sing in it. Enjoy this and many more stories in "Rhythm and Jews", the five lectures course that explore two centuries of Jews' contributions to popular music, that will start next week, on Thursday November 5th. It includes jazz, rock, pop, Broadway musicals, etc.. It's part of the wide selection of online courses and lectures offered by Melton & More.
