Rabbi Daniel Plotkin was in the marching band at the University of Wisconsin and one of his highlights came when the football team took part in the Rose Bowl parade in 1994 - the school's first appearance in the game in 31 years. When Plotkin became the rabbi at Beth Shalom in Columbia less than three years ago, he soon learned of several other congregants with dormant musical backgrounds but no outlet to keep sharp or exhibit their skills. With the assistance of Steve Cohen, who joined the congregation in 2005, Plotkin created Divine Intervention, an eclectic mix of musicians who held An Evening at the Coffee House on Jan. 25 as a fundraiser for Beth Shalom.

Now, for the ultimate in counter-programming: On Christmas Day, from 9 a.m. on, Baltimore radio show hosts Larry Cohen and Jay Bernstein will present 12 straight hours of talk, music and promotions geared toward Jewish interests on WJFK (1300 AM). Admittedly, the show's name, "Shalom Baltimore," sounds like an ironic title of a Barry Levinson movie. And sure, the program, regularly broadcast from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sundays, doesn't pull down the same audience as, say, Howard Stern, who can be heard weekday mornings on the same station.

This radio story ends well -- just stay tuned. Two days before their weekly two-hour show was set to air Jan. 23, Larry Cohen was in Israel, Jay Bernstein was in Baltimore. Cohen and Bernstein, producer and host of the Shalom USA talk radio show, were working on the second of two shows from Israel planned for their listeners on Baltimore's Live 105.7. What could go wrong while broadcasting from the Middle East? The week before, a mortar shell had exploded a block from where Cohen was broadcasting from the Gaza Strip.

The Morris A. Mechanic Theatre, which has drawn praise as one of downtown Baltimore's most significant works of 20th-century architecture, is known as a symbol of urban renewal and for the way its highly sculpted exterior reflected the spaces inside. The 1967 building at Baltimore and Charles streets has also been criticized as a less-than-stellar example of urban design, for "turning its back" on Charles Street and presenting a fortresslike shell when not in use. For city leaders seeking to revitalize the dormant property, the conflicting images pose a design challenge: Can the owners retain the building in a way that will please preservationists while adding uses that correct its urbanistic shortcomings?

Four months after Baltimore's preservation commission voted to add the vacant Morris A. Mechanic Theatre to an emergency landmark list in order to prevent demolition or defacement of the 1967 building, a new architect has been identified to come up with a revised plan for converting it to different uses. Shalom Baranes Associates, an award-winning, Washington-based firm with a strong track record in historic preservation and adaptive reuse, has been hired to take over design work on the theater, for many years a venue for traveling Broadway shows and other live performances downtown.
