THE JEWISH FEDERATION OF SARASOTA-MANATEE PROUDLY PRESENTS

SARASOTA JEWISH THEATER

Drama illuminates the human condition; we strive to bring this into focus through the keen and insightful lens of Jewish life. SJT offers audiences of diverse beliefs and backgrounds plays and programs which reflect Jewish life, literature, and experience. You don’t have to be Jewish to love Jewish theatre.

 

Each play will have one preview and four performances, and a separate Zoom discussion with the cast and directors. Unfortunately, we were unable to receive the rights to stream the plays, so they will only be live on stage. Limited socially distanced seating is available.

 

The Sarasota Jewish Theatre is a nonprofit theatre company dedicated to the presentation of plays, performances and programs which celebrate Jewish culture, values, literature, history, and experience. QUESTIONS ABOUT SARASOTA JEWISH THEATER? Contact Carole Kleinberg at 941.232.4123.
