Josh Kornbluth finds Warhol, and Judaism

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency has published an article about Josh Kornbluth's latest one-man show, titled, “Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews?” In it, Josh discusses his new interest in Jewish topics, and his upcoming bar mitzvah in Israel. The article begins,

Josh Kornbluth didn’t find his Jewish identity the typical way.

It was pop artist Andy Warhol who sparked the process that brought the successful San Francisco Bay Area performer, now 52, to discover Torah, synagogue -- and, in a few months, a bar mitzvah in Israel.

“I was raised orthodox – orthodox communist!” Kornbluth said as he sat down with JTA over a plate of bacon and eggs to discuss his newfound appreciation of his Jewish roots. “Zionism was the enemy in our house.”
