Description: Jewish theatre represents a group that sits at the intersection of being both persecuted and privileged, both historically and currently. As our field-at-large grapples with anti-Blackness and the marginalization of Black and Indigenous artists within our industry, what lessons can Jewish theaters learn from the conversations happening at other culturally-specific theaters, such as Asian, Irish, and Latinx theaters? Where are the challenges the same and where are they different, and what language and resources can our colleagues offer us?
