7:00 pm

In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, join our Jews by Choice class for a special performance of “The Jewish Wife” (excerpted from Fear and Misery in the Third Reich by Bertolt Brecht, Bentley translation), featuring Tamar Brooks and John Wilson.

In Nazi Germany, a Jewish woman prepares to leave her non-Jewish husband in order to save them both from destruction.

After the performance, Cantor Berke and Tani Prell will lead a dialogue with Tamar about the character and her story.

Due to licensing restrictions, the performance will only be available at this date and time.
