Upcoming Events

Kesem Inclusive Theatre Project Performance

In Hebrew, the word "Kesem" means magic, and at the Weinstein JCC, we like to make magic! The Kesem Inclusive Theatre Project is a theatre education initiative from the Weinstein JCC for adults ages 22 and up. The Center is committed to offering inclusive programming within the community for people of all ages and abilities. Kesem will provide a comprehensive theatre education experience from process to performance. Recognizing the positive impact of arts education on the social, emotional and functional aspects of life for all individuals, the Weinstein JCC has compiled a qualified team of professionals to develop a program that will meet the needs of individuals with disabilities while providing a deep and meaningful experience for every participant.

The 2nd Annual Kesem production will be a staged reading of the Tales of Sholem Aleichem. Sholem Aleichem was a great Jewish humorist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The legendary musical film and play Fiddler on the Roof was based on the Aleichem story, Tevye’s Daughters. The stories center on Tevye the dairyman, one of the most delightful and amusing characters in all of fiction, and his struggles to maintain his cultural traditions in the face of changing times. Stories of family, love, loss, and humor are set in a small village in Russia over 100 years ago – and yet these universal themes resonate with audiences of all backgrounds, even today.

If you are interested in participating or learning more about Kesem Inclusive Theatre Project, please contact Erin Mahone, Director of Cultural Arts and Jewish Engagement, at or (804) 545-8644. People of all faiths and backgrounds are invited to participate!
