The Forbidden Conversation was created at LABA – Laboratory for Jewish culture – an award-winning fellowship in New York where Jewish artists from different disciplines study Talmud (and other Jewish text) while developing new work. The play premiered in New York at the Center For Jewish History in the spring of 2016 and has been performed in Jewish spaces across the country since. The performance (on Wed, May 12) will be followed by an open discussion about the challenging conversations we have with family, friends and our community concerning the future of Israel, the American Jewish community and ways to process fundamental differences and disagreements. All opinions are welcome.
