Audience growing for Valley Beit Midrash’s podcast series

Valley Beit Midrash (VBM), the collaborative organization that offers a wide array of Jewish programming to the Greater Phoenix Jewish community, continues to beef up its library of podcasts to help foster Jewish learning.

VBM’s efforts to offer podcasts of its popular spring and fall lecture series started in late 2014. That was when VBM Operations Director AJ Frost kept hearing the same refrain from local residents: They wanted to attend a specific lecture in the series, but couldn’t — so they asked VBM to record the lectures for future listening. In March 2015, VBM recorded its first podcast, a lecture with Rabbi Art Green. Now, as VBM prepares for its fall speaker series that starts Oct. 22, there are 80 podcasts in VBM’s collection — and Valley residents aren’t the only ones listening.
