The Promise of Paradise | The Braid
Inspiring Jewish Stories on Stage (The Braid) • 7m 59s
Master storyteller Vicki Juditz’s story begins in the waiting room of her 15-year-old daughter’s therapist’s office. After her husband’s suicide, her daughter is struggling and blames her for ruining her life. Worst of all, the teenager can’t believe her beloved dad is in “Heaven,” because Vicki had told her God was like Santa Claus, and one had to fix one’s own problems. A trip to New York to celebrate Passover leads to a shared Yahrzeit service that might be the start of a soulful and spiritual resolution.
