Inspiring Jewish Stories on Stage l The Braid / JWT Presents:
Am-ree-kah | The Braid
Esther Amini tells a poignant story from her memoir, Concealed, of her family of Persian Jews, who having fled the religious zealotry of Iran are looking forward to celebrating their first shabbat at an American synagogue in Manhattan. Dressed in their Sabbath finery, they approach the sanctuary and are shocked to be told they are “not real Jews.” Didn’t they leave anti-Semitism and hatred behind? Their journey to find the answer will fill you with hope and remind you of our country’s most cherished freedoms and values.
