About This Event
Join us to kick off the national tour of the online production of The Scribe.\
“I put it together. This holy, sacred text. I made it what it is.” So begins the tale of the Scribe who put together the first Torah. In ancient Jerusalem, Ezra and Nehemiah assign the reluctant Scribe with a daunting task intended to save the Children of Israel. But before he can reconcile the multiple and conflicting source texts into the Torah we know today, the Scribe must first confront his doubts, his people’s history, and his longing for the good-old-days of exile in Babylon. Hear the (maybe) true tale of how “in the beginning” really began!\
Written and performed by Jesse Bernstein. The performance will be followed by Q&A with Jesse Bernstein.\
This program is offered in partnership with Interplay Jewish Theatre (Cleveland) and Theatre Ariel (Philadelphia) and also in partnership with the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.
