Opening Night: ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered?’ a program of The Israel Story Podcast
November 7 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Israel Story is an award-winning podcast that tells extraordinary tales about ordinary people living in this corner of the world. This program, specially created for Israel’s 75th anniversary, is a live, literary, multi-media performance – part history lesson, part contemporary social commentary, all in one night. It is based on the story around Israel’s original Declaration of Independence. The presentation includes interviews with the closest living relative of each of the original 37 signatories of the Declaration. The evening will include live storytelling, reading of the Declaration Megillat H’Atzmaut, a chavrusa-style hands-on component, a recording of Ben Gurion’s grandson and an interview with Rabbi Gold’s grandson to reflect diverse views of Israel today.
This project is part of the Cleveland Jewish Book Festival and was funded in part by an Ohio Humanities Ignite Grant.
