This week on Unorthodox, we explore the role Jews played in the American psychedelic movement of the 1950s and ’60s, and learn why some rabbis and spiritual leaders today are advocating for using psychedelics to unlock Jewish spiritual experiences.
First, we talk to Jesse Jarnow, author of Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America, who tells us about the emergence of psychedelic use in midcentury America, and the many Jews involved in that countercultural scene.
