Aaron Henne, Artistic Director
Friday, September 23, 6 pm
The Temple, an historic landmark and institution
1589 Peachtree St, Atlanta 30309
RSVP: Hank Kimmel, 404-735-9132
Pre-show meet-up: 5:15pm, at Java Negilah coffee shop, at the front of The Temple

theatre dybbuk, Southern California’s premiere Jewish theatrical arts and education company, comes to The Temple for their acclaimed theatre/spiritual experience, to take us on a journey through our own personal connections to forgiveness. The evening culminates with a reading, by professional actors, of the community’s stories. This is a wonderful opportunity to prepare, emotionally and spiritually, for the High Holy Days.

The program includes a writing workshop, which begins the evening, followed by a service experience, and the reading/performance. Plus an oneg! This is a free event.

  • The Temple has strong dramatic roots. Playwright Alfred Uhry grew up in this sanctuary, and the main characters in “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Parade” were members of The Temple.
  • Also, a new play, “The Temple Bombing,” will premiere at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta this winter, as part of the celebration for The Temple’s 150th anniversary.

Mira Hirsch (past AJT president), and Hank Kimmel (current AJT president) will host this pop-up event, featuring the enlightened work of Aaron Henne (AJT vice president).
