Review: 

In his show, Shalom Dammit!, David Lefkowitz, in his persona of “Rabbi Sol Solomon,” gives us an entertaining evening of humor, song, physical action, as he explores worldly incongruities and the consequences of being Jewish. His folky presentation is full of sparks of insight and sprinkled generously with jokes, from an unabashedly partisan point of view. He’s lively as a herring, smart (as a rabbi should be), tasty as a gefilte fish (with red horseradish), cute - as he bounces around the stage, and quite entertaining. What more could you want?
