Performance of “Heschel’s Passover Eve”

Temple Beth-El 2179 Highland Avenue, Birmingham, AL, United States

The J — in partnership with Temple Beth-El, Temple Emanu-El, and the Jewish Community Relations Council — is offering a unique opportunity to see Heschel’s Passover Eve, a solo performance that takes an intimate “behind-the-scenes” look at a special seder hosted by Rabbi Dr. Abraham Joshua Heschel and to which he has invited his friend and traveling companion Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The play begins in April 1968. As Rabbi Heschel arranges the chairs around the seder table, we watch him rehearse for the coming event. His preparations give the audience an intimate look at Heschel’s complex, fascinating, and even tumultuous character. Yizhar Hess, the vice chair of the World Zionist Organization who commissioned the play, will be in attendance. Get your tickets now for this performance at The J on January 16. 6:30 Doors open and reception 7:00 Play start 7:50 Talk-Back HERE is the link to purchase tickets.
