Theatre Chevruta

Theatre Chevruta – A Jewish Readers Theatre

Theatre is an exploration of culture, entertainment, and ideas, shared by the audience and performers. Chevruta is an exploration of the Talmud, shared by two people. Theatre Chevruta, through its productions and supplemental offerings (post-show talkbacks, preview lectures and discussions, etc.), exists to let audience and performers explore important, entertaining, and often unfamiliar offerings of Jewish theatre–Yiddish theatre, Israeli theatre, new works, obscured classics, and more.

Theatre Chevruta was founded in 2013, based at the Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center of Silicon Valley, in Los Gatos, California.
