Yom Hashoah Event

Arts + Ideas at the Weinstein JCC will present a recorded, staged reading of the play, The Soap Myth, starring 7-time Emmy Award winner, Ed Asner. The Soap Myth dramatically explores how a survivor survives surviving and questions who has the right to write history - those who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort and desecrate its very existence. 

Watch the staged reading of The Soap Myth at your convenience and join us for a talkback discussion with The Soap Myth playwright, Jeff Cohen, Virginia Holocaust Museum’s Director of Education, Megan Ferenczy, and Holocaust refugee, Captain Alex Keisch, on Thursday, April 8 at 7:30 PM EST via Zoom.

This event is FREE and open to the public. It is recommended that registrants watch the staged reading prior to the talkback discussion in order to get the most out of the program.
