92Y Havaya International In Savannah, Georgia


[UPDATE: The video above, from WTOC news in Savannah, Georgia, is experiencing technical difficulties.]

92Y Havaya International, a unique summer travel and community service program for American and Israeli teens, is wrapping up its fourth consecutive summer. You can follow their adventures on the 92Y Havaya Facebook page.

This year’s group – which includes 14 Americans and 18 Israelis – just finished their culminating project: organizing and leading Camp Lighthouse, a 4-day camp for Savannah, Georgia’s underserved youth. One of Savannah’s local television stations, WTOC, was quite impressed by the Havayaniks’ efforts, as evidenced by this story that aired on the network on Thursday, August 4.

Culture Klatsch: 92Y Q&A With Joshua Jackson

image

The Checkout: Live from 92YTribeca is curated by Joshua Jackson, host of WBGO’s hour-long music magazine The Checkout. Jackson is an unparalleled enthusiast for modern expressions in jazz. Today, he is also the focus of the 92Y Culture Klatsch, our 12 question interview series that looks at the subjects media and culture diet. Spoiler alert: He’d “rather be in a small aluminum boat in the shallow brackish marsh of Lafourche Parish. Thinking about absolute and infinite nothingness.”

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I’m contractually obligated to say WBGO, but it’s true. Gary Walker and Doug Doyle are both great at what they do. I also listen to a few stories on the NPR mobile app. BBC News is paramount - their reporting is better than everything. I add long reads to Instapaper for the commute. Harlem to Newark and back gives me ample time to go deeper.

What are your favorite websites?
I like the curation behind Maria Popova’s Brain Pickings. I’m also continually amazed by the amount of interesting things on government websites, particularly NASA and the Library of Congress. I’ve been listening to vintage audio recordings on the National Jukebox lately.
