Jewish Play Reading Project

The new Jewish Play Reading Project is an opportunity to gather together to read and explore three plays of Jewish content. No acting experience or preparation is necessary. Just show up and prepare to have some fun!  Attend any - or all - of the readings.  Ages 15+ are welcome.

Theatre Director Rick Schiller will facilitate the reading. RSVP Rick so he can keep you up-to-date with further details.

The plays/reading dates are as follows:

  • March 31, 2:00-5:00pmMy Name Is Asher Lev by Aaron Posner. (Adapted from the novel by Chaim Potok) The journey of a young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise.
  • April 14, 2:00-5:00pm, The Immigrant by Mark Harelik. Haskell and Leah Harelik, immigrants from Russia, settle in a tiny Texas town in 1909 and are the only Jews there.
  • May 19, 2:00-5:00pmIndecent by Paula Vogel. A true story about a brave Yiddish play that fearlessly told the world there’s nothing indecent about love.

The Jewish Play Reading Project is supported by the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund and is part of Har Shalom’s new Cultural Arts Committee.
