Avrum Rosensweig is a rabbinical son. He has spent most of his life therefore working to enhance the world and the lives of many in need.
Avrum is the founder of Veahavta, Canada’s only Jewish humanitarian organization (www.veahavta.org) that works in the streets of Toronto with the homeless, and sent medical missions to places like Guyana and Zimbabwe.
Avrum spent over a decade on commercial radio including Toronto’s CFRB and Talk 640 co-producing and co-hosting quirky and delightful food and restaurants shows with Hollywood stars and singers like Michael Buble, prolific chefs, restauranteurs, servers and of course foodies from all over the world.
Combining his talents, Avrum has now created HatRadio!, a positive podcast with guests of all backgrounds who tell their fascinating life stories, share intimate details about groundbreaking aspects of their lives and play music and sing if able. Avrum speaks with 106 year-old Kitty “Leah” Cohen about her passion for playing drums and thoughts on sexuality. He schmoozes with Eli Rubenstein, once an Orthodox Jew and Yeshiva scholar and today a spiritual leader at a humanistic synagogue and the national director of a Holocaust education organization called March of the Living. And Avrum talks with the musician from New Jersey, the cat-rescuer from Toronto and the Moroccan cantor who came to America by himself, at 14 years-old, to sing.
HatrRadio!’s Tagline is “The show that schmoozes”. It is because Avrum’s intention through this new and refreshing podcast is to create an environment that reflects a midnight talk amongst friends around a bonfire where ideas and feelings flow freely and the participants have many honest and often courageous “Uhu” moments.
By doing so HatRadio! sends a message to its listeners about community, love, growth, authenticity and a sense of belonging.
Enjoy the show and feel free to ask questions, offer advice and suggests guests. Thank you for listening. We re grateful!
