Inspiring Jewish Stories on Stage l The Braid / JWT Presents:
A Beautiful Soul | The Braid
Ronda Spinak, The Braid/Jewish Women’s Theatre’s co-founder and artistic director, takes us on a deeply personal tour of her childhood, filled with relatives who cared for her while she was growing up. As a teenager, when she finds her Uncle Jack to be an embarrassment, she realizes he is unlike her other family members, or really anyone else. A profoundly Jewish and touching story of self-reflection and spirituality, this cautionary tale is ultimately about tolerance and acceptance.
