NJT’s Theatre Chaverim 3rd-5th grade Capture the Moon By Ernest Joselovitz and Harry M. Bagdasian A long time ago, before street lights were invented, the people in a Jewish shtetl were too poor to have lanterns to light their way around their village on moonless Sabbath nights. So what do they do? They come up with imaginative ways to capture the full moon! Based on Jewish folktales of Chelm, and laced with irony and wit, this funny new play takes a light-hearted look at what it’s like to be different. It’s also a celebration of simple wisdom, tolerance and uniqueness.

It’s a New Year. So Why Is It the Same Old You? 10Q: Reflect, React, Renew at

Adult The ten days between the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are oft considered a perfect period of reflection, an opportunity to look at where you’re at, where you’ve come from, and where you’re heading. Whether you’re religious or not, Jewish or not, introspective or not, literate or not, we invite you to take part in 10Q (\stlouis), an online series of questions, one a day for ten days. Answer the questions and email them to a secure online vault just after Yom Kippur; next year, before Rosh Hashanah, these same answers will be sent back to you for reflection, and the whole process will begin again. Whether you do it once or become an annual 10Qer, we hope that in pondering and scribbling your answers, 10Q will help connect you to parts of yourself that often get lost in the midst of fast-paced, twenty-first century life.

He weaves them into a cohesive whole, filled with his trademark humor and Chekhov poignancy as many depict long-suffering characters and the absurd humor underlying even the most tragic of circumstances. Clayton OASIS Lecture SFC 10/14 10-11:30am $36 (includes play) Mon NJT Performance SFC Sun 10/20 2pm NJT presents… Hannah Senesh David Schechter’s one-woman play “Hannah Senesh” is about a young Hungarian woman with a profound sense of Zionism in the British Mandate of Palestine in 1939. As the war heated up and Senesh learned of the plight of European Jews, she joined the Palmach and with a British unit of paramilitary fighters, parachuted into Europe behind enemy lines with a mission to save Hungarian Jews. Within hours of crossing the Hungarian border, she was arrested and would be tortured, tried and ultimately executed in November 1944.
