What’s your story? How do our stories affect who we’ve been, who we are, and who we’re becoming?
Join The Hive and Jeighborhood for a storytelling Shabbat experience with Aaron Henne, artistic director of theatre dybbuk, as he takes us on a journey through our own individual and communal narratives around what it means to belong. Aaron will be leading us through a short workshop where we’ll write quick, anonymous, first-person stories that, as we near the summer solstice and think about the times we have shared during the season, speak to those moments in our lives where we felt connected, found ease, or experienced joy. After the workshop, we’ll enjoy a sunset dinner while professional actors from theatre dybbuk work their magic behind the scenes! They’ll be using anonymous excerpts from the stories collected to perform a staged reading set to music.
A workshop, a dinner, and a show – this Shabbat will have something for everyone!
Guests can purchase a table (up to six guests) for their own pod, or sit at a community table to make new friends (register soon – we can only honor GF and vegan dietary preferences submitted by Monday, June 12th)!
Please email Paige Milgrom-Hills if you have additional questions or need support.
