Jewish Women’s Theatre, Temple Beth El, Temple Menorah, and Congregation Ner Tamid Present “the Matzah Ball Diaries” a virtual Salon Event
A wonderful recipe for laughter and tears in a new theater piece will be performed virtually by the Jewish Women’s Theatre; Jewish stories about food that reveal secrets of love, nourishment, and the power that food has to heal.
In this Salon show, THE MATZO BALL DIARIES, the Braid/Jewish Women’s Theatre explores the special meanings that Jewish people give to food. Food is just so “chewish,” says Ronda Spinak, co-founder and artistic director of the Braid/JWT. “Everyone can relate to stories about food, especially when they make you laugh, cry, and remember!”
The stories, performed by a cast of professional actors, feature original works by an international cast of writers sharing personal histories about the meaning of food in their lives; stories ranging from a reminiscence of childhood obesity caused by over indulgence in the dreaded K-foods (kreplach, kishka, knishes) to Jewish struggles with anorexia, cultural glimpses into Iranian chicken pluckers, the etiquette of accepting pistachio treats, and more!
This Zoom performance will be on Saturday, November 7th, 7:30 pm. Tickets are one per family/household at $36. There will be a question & answer session after the performance.
