Q. What is The 9 Days of Jerry?
A. The 9 Days of Jerry celebrates the "Days Between" the birthday (August 1st) and yartzeit (August 9th) of musical legend Jerry Garcia, z"l.
Jerry Garcia is a foundational element of Radio Free Nachlaot's programming theme - "Where Shlomo Meets Jerry."
Q. Why does the 2nd Annual 9 Days of Jerry start on August 10th this year?
A. Because Radio Free Nachlaot follows the Jewish calendar when programming. This year (2011/5771, a leap year) the 3-Week mourning period for the destruction of the Holy Temple, including the 9 Days (Rosh Chodesh Av through Tisha b'Av) happens to fall within the normal 9 Days of Jerry time period. We delay the start of RFN's 9DOJ until 1pm Jerusalem time, Wednesday August 10th, in deferrence to halacha.
Q. Who are you really and who were you before that?
A. Radio Free Nachlaot is an internet radio station broadcasting 24/6 from deep within Nachlaot, Jerusalem's coolest neighborhood, to a world-wide audience (at last count 54 countries) and bringing them the music, talk & Torah that defines the Nachlaot State of Mind.
