What is Jewish Involvement theater?
Participants are involved in a musical theater program designed to teach Judaism and explore solutions to modern day Jewish problems.  Participants become  teachers as they interact with the program's characters and each other.  Program includes a FREE resource/activity guide designed for Jewish educators and community leaders.

Program Format

Jewish Involvement Theater works closely with you to select presentation themes and to utilize the resource and activity guide.  Participants are arranged either in rows or in circles of 6-8 people depending upon the format of the program and age of group.  A lead character (biblical or contemporary) introduces the program, sets the ground rules and links together a contemporary and biblical issue.  Characters then present your selected themes through music and interactive drama.   At the end,  the lead character returns to allow participants to personalize the issues presented.  Younger participants receive a special gold sticker.
