You don’t have to be Jewish to relate to this funny and captivating musical review featuring original music by Broadway’s finest composers and lyricists. This new musical adaptation celebrates the Jewish identity of America’s most notable public figures. Stars of David: Story to Song is based on a book of stories collected by author Abigail Pogrebin from interviews with famous Jews, including Andy Cohen, Edgar Bronfman,Sr., Fran Drescher, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and others, about their Jewish experience. The collection includes songs by Michael Feinstein, Marvin Hamlisch, Sheldon Harnick and more!
Based on the Book by Abigail Pogrebin. Conceived by Aaron Harnick. Directed by Debra Clinton.
We observe Yom Hashoah in 2018 with a moving performance by local middle and high school students, performing the stage adaptation of National Jewish Book Award winner Salvaged Pages, a stirring collection of diaries written during the Holocaust by young people, ages 12 to 22. Some of the diarists were refugees, others were in hiding or passing as non-Jews, some were imprisoned in ghettos, and nearly all of them perished before liberation. This seminal book preserves the impressions, emotions, and eyewitness reportage of young people whose accounts of daily events and often unexpected thoughts, ideas, and feelings serve to deepen and complicate our understanding of life during the Holocaust.
This performance is presented in partnership with Midlothian Middle School, Hanover High School, and the Virginia Holocaust Museum.
The Center is thrilled once again to partner with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra to present a musical celebration of Israel’s 70th Birthday! Following the success of last season’s Itzhak Perlman concert and the previous year’s Voices of Survival, both held at the Carpenter Theatre, we are excited to welcome the Symphony back to the Weinstein JCC’s Sara Belle November Theater. Featuring special guest and famed Israeli soprano Nofar Yacobi, the program for the evening will reflect a wide range of classical, musical theatre, Hebrew and Jewish liturgical music and more!
Interested in having your work featured in the Undiscovered Artists and Photographers Exhibit? Submissions are due to the Weinstein JCC by April 23 at 5PM. For more information, click here or contact Leslie McGuigan at 545.8644 or email@example.com.
A poignant drama about love and reconciliation adapted by one of Israel’s most beloved authors from her own short story, this hit Israeli play follows the young Sephardic Rivka, a religious teenager, who falls for Dooby, a secular kibbutznik, at a dance class in Jerusalem. She arranges to follow him back to his kibbutz in the Negev Desert, but not before Rivka’s orthodox parents bar her from leaving, forcibly at first, only to chase after Rivka as she flees. A timeless and timely confrontation between tradition and modernity becomes a moving reckoning, as the sweetest of meals is offered and two generations learn to make peace.
By Sayvon Liebrecht. Translation by Shir Freibach. Directed by Debra Clinton.
Taken from a six-hour interview with David Ben Gurion, one of modern history's greatest leaders, an important story emerges from the obscurity of an archive where it has lain unrecognized for decades. It is 1968, and Ben-Gurion is 82 years old. He lives in the seclusion of his home in the desert, remote from all political discourse, which allows him a perspective on the Zionist enterprise. His introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his reflections provide a surprising vision for today's crucial decisions and for the future of Israel.
Presented in collaboration with Hadassah Richmond
