'Yahu!

Despite looks that scream novelty, the Jewish reggae rapper Matisyahu resonates for real with faithful audiences.


Music

Matt Carney
Jay-Z has rags-to-riches. Nas, urban poverty. Nearly every word Bob Marley sang, barbed with social criticism.

Rabbis making history

For the first time in OKC history, both its congregational rabbis are women.


News

Greg Horton
When Vered Harris became the rabbi of Temple B’nai Israel, only the fifth in its 109-year history, the arrival also proved historical for another reason. It marked the first time in metro history that its only two congregational rabbis are women. Harris’ colleague, Abby Jacobson, is rabbi at Emanuel Synagogue.

The Possession

This is why you shouldn’t go antiquing.


Horror

Rod Lott
Certainly I’m not the only one who confused The Possession and The Apparition when they played theaters late this summer. After all, the two horror films not only had soundalike titles and shared similar premises, but opened within seven days of one another.

Fill the Void

Love and marriage don’t always go together like a horse and carriage, as this Hebrew-language drama shows.

Women Who Kill

More like maim.


Comedy

Rod Lott
An hour of stage comedy by female stand-ups, Women Who Kill errs in putting its not-so-secret weapon right upfront: Amy Schumer, who might just be the funniest person in America right now. Even her throwaway lines (“Do you ever have Oxycontin mouth?” she asks no one, rhetorically) pierce the flesh.

The company has aggressively not supported women’s rights due to its alleged Christian belief structure.
