On Sunday, June 10, at 7 p.m, Temple Beth El of Northern Westchester is proud to present, direct from the Jewish Women’s Theatre in Los Angeles, an exclusive one-night-only performance of Stories from the Fringe: Women Rabbis, Revealed! Finding holy moments, in love, God and a fabulous pair of shoes. The benefit performance will be held at the Temple on 220 South Bedford Road.
Provocative, heartfelt and humorous, the play draws from interviews of 18 Los Angeles women rabbis revealing the unique journeys that brought them to the rabbinate. The play celebrates and marks an historic moment in Jewish history, the ordination of the first woman rabbi, Sally Preisand, in America forty years ago.
Stories from the Fringe, was written by Ronda Spinak and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Rabbi Lynne A. Kern. It is based on oral interviews with the rabbis whose stories all speak of their pioneering work to break the glass ceiling of an all male-led Jewish tradition. Some of the proceeds from this performance will support Jewish Women’s Theatre and the newly created Story Archive of Women Rabbis. Tickets for this event are $36 adults, $28 seniors 65+, $28 for students under 18. For more info and tickets, please go to email@example.com.
