Yom Hashoah Commemoration: Witness Theater
Witness Theater is a collaboration between high school students and survivors of the Holocaust that originated in Israel through JDC-Eshel and is now running for the second year as a collaboration between Selfhelp Community Services and Yeshivah of Flatbush. High school juniors and seniors work with survivors in the community over the course of a school year under the guidance of a drama therapist. The survivors tell their stories, and together with the students they create a play dramatizing their stories. It is an incredible experience that will be shared with our community in a one-time only event. Please join us for the deeply moving performance. (more)REGISTER

Written and performed by David and Paul Rigano, produced by Festival Arts Up-and-coming cabaret stars David and Paul Rigano occasionally refer to themselves as pizza bagels. Their mom, Rita, is of Italian extraction; their father Ron is Jewish. Growing up with their mother’s last name because their father's extended family disowned him, David and Paul nonetheless identify with their Jewish heritage. They have performed various Rigano Songbooks at famed New York cabaret venues like Don’t Tell Mama and The Duplex. J-Fest is proud to host the world premiere of their Jew-ish Edition. Mixing songs by the Rigano boys and stories from their lives with classic cabaret and musical theatre repertoire, this promises to be a fabulous, fun-filled show about the way secular Jews honor their cultural heritage.

Written by Iris Burnett and Matty Selman, produced by Iris Burnett A heartwarming original musical about family and tradition, The Gefilte Fish Chronicles is based on the award-winning PBS documentary. It tells the story of the Dubroff family, who gather year after year, through the generations, to prepare the Passover seder and reminisce. The Gefilte Fish Chronicles could be any family’s story; it’s the story of the American Jewish family experience, set to music. The piece is funny, touching, and heartwarming without being cloying, twee, or playing heavily on stereotypes. (more)REGISTER
