Saul Brodsky Jewish Community Library and PJ Library are working together to develop a Jewish Story Festival for the community, launching in May, intersecting with the St. Louis Storytelling Festival. This first event on May 4, 2017 will then kick-off a yearlong series of “story walks” through the St. Louis Jewish community utilizing various modalities of telling stories about our community, our families and our own stories. The partnership will be offering local families four to five opportunities to engage with others throughout the next 18 months. Programs will be collaborative with various organizations partnering with a quest, such as religious schools, preschools, etc.
For the first event in the series, join The Bible Players for a hilarious interactive Torah Comedy Show on Thursday, May 4 at 5:00 pm. Featuring stand-up comedy, stories, improv games and much more! The Bible Players have been improv-ing Jewish lives, performing in 26 states for thousands of adults and children alike. Andrew Davies is a master improviser who will engage the whole family. Aaron Friedman is a stand-up comedian who was voted “The Funniest Jew in New York!” Don’t miss this show that will have you laughing your tuchus off!
Bring a picnic dinner and come enjoy the show at the To Have Fun Pavilion in the J’s Staenberg Campus North Parking Lot. The ice cream truck will arrive at 6:30 pm to cap off the event. RSVP online at JFedSTL.org/events/Quest-For-Menschhood. For more information, contact Jennifer Baer Lotsoff at JLotsoff@JFedSTL.org or 314-442-3867.
