Congregation Tifereth Israel at 40 Hill Street in Glen Cove will present two performances of
“The Wanderers” in a special theatrical fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 26 at 8 PM and Sunday, Feb. 27 at 7 PM.
Live streamed performances on Zoom, $20 per person fee
Theatre Ariel, Philadelphia’s only Jewish theatrical troupe, presents two performances of Anna Ziegler’s acclaimed The Wanderers on Saturday, February 26 at 8 PM and Sunday, February 27 at 7 PM.
The performances benefit education programs for adults and children at Glen Cove’s Congregation Tifereth Israel. The play is 80-minutes long and will be followed by a 20-minute Q&A with the performers. These virtual performances will be available on Zoom.
The play recounts the story of Satmar Hasidic Jews Esther and Schmuli who embark on an arranged marriage despite barely knowing each other. Their story is paralleled with the story of Abe and Sophie, secular Jews whose marriage grew from their childhood friendship.
Two seemingly contrasting marriages, yet as Anna Ziegler’s play of twists and turns demonstrates we learn about human nature, marriage and what we neglect to see as we discover that there is much that binds these two very different couples. The director of The Wanderers, Deborah Baer Mozes, said that the play will soon have a Broadway run.
Tickets for the two performances of The Wanderer are $20 per person and must be arranged at least one day in advance.
