Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose. This discussion will provide a foundation for the second part of the series in which we will explore the many realities of interfaith relationships, including challenges we have faced and our varied approaches to our own interfaith experiences.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
A Traveling Jewish Theatre's mission is to create and perform original works of theatre, as an ensemble and in collaboration with theatre artists from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, that contribute to a generous vision of the human condition. ATJT looks for connections where others see separation. This unique artist-led ensemble has, over the past nineteen years, created a body of work that defies categorization. In the polyglot tradition of Jewish culture, ATJT speaks many languages. It speaks poetry and it speaks story. It speaks secular Yiddish humanism and ecstatic mysticism. It speaks world history and women's wisdom. It speaks jazz and sacred chant. It speaks Jewish and it speaks American.
'Times Like These' is a play about acting, both onstage and in life, about performance as a political tool and, in a sense, politics as a perversion of performance.
It's also, as the words "Like These" in the title indicate, a play -- though based on the fates of a leading German Jewish actress and her "Aryan" actor husband in 1930s Berlin -- that is meant to serve less as a historical drama than as a wake-up call for our own times."
