AJT: Connecting Jewish theatre to the world


Alliance for Jewish Theatre (AJT) is excited to announce our first virtual theatre project: The Telling Monologues.

The international crisis with COVID-19 is leading up to one of our major holidays, Passover. Given the Jewish people’s history, we feel the significance of this parallel. Each year, we read from the Haggadah (The Telling, aptly enough), and it tells us that the Israelites gathered and shared stories during a time of crisis. AJT invites you to submit 1-3 minute monologues on the theme of Passover using the hashtag #PassoverTellingProject

AJT’s 2020 Conference
Sunday, October 25 – Tuesday, October 27
Washington, D.C.

Last year’s conference hosted by ShPIeL in Chicago was the largest Jewish theatre conference in the country with nearly 100 theatre artists coming together. Now we expect the same and better in with Theater J in Washington, D.C.

Raves from our 2019 Chicago Conference!

“An AMAZING organization, the Alliance for Jewish Theatre changed my perspective, and inspired my awareness of all that is possible in Jewish theatre!” — Robin Pullen

“My time at the AJT conference was both inspirational and affirming. To be with such a gemütlich group, not to have to draw road maps for everything I said, to share my love of theater with practitioners at all moments in a career continuum, these were experiences which will sustain me going forward.” — DS Magid

“I would like to add my voice to the praise of the conference and the people who were behind it. Thank you for being a safe place for many different voices, in addition to the high professional level. God was in the details. As we say in Hebrew, ‘kol hakavod’.” — Toby Klein Greenwald
