"A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff" is a chamber-rock opera written and performed by Alicia Jo Rabins with a live band. The piece explores Madoff's infamous scam through personal stories, interviews with people who played a part in the story, and the lens of Jewish and Buddhist thought. In this session, Alicia will perform live songs from the piece, screen excerpts from its sold-out premiere at Joe's Pub in November 2012, and lead a discussion about where finance, ethics, and mysticism intersect.

This session was made possible by funds from The Covenant Foundation.
