Selichot “The Art of Forgiveness”
2 Lake Street, San Francisco, California
Is there an art to forgiveness?
Jewish women reveal their secrets to forgiving. But do they ever forget? Find out in this moving and thought-provoking show that deals with sibling rivalry, betrayal, ex-husbands, a German’s plea for forgiveness and one woman’s ability to forgive herself after a horrible accident that takes a man’s life. All this, and more, will bring you to tears. There are moments of laughter as well.
About Jewish Women’s Theatre
In the fall of 2008, Jewish Women’s Theatre debuted in the backyard of a home in California with the expressed purpose of giving voice to Jewish women on stage. Until then, no theater company in America had pledged to welcome and encourage contemporary stories by Jewish women and to adapt them theatrically, giving them life in front of a live audience. “We are a people of the book,” we reasoned. “What if we focused on the word, the text, the story? What if we revived the age-old tradition of salons: women hosting culture of the day in their homes?” Sparing the expense of a theater, sets, costumes, and props meant we could fully focus on presenting powerful stories in unexpected and convenient venues, reaching many more local neighborhoods.
