The first of eight plays featured during the festival, this one, by Beth Kander, concerns itself with a diverse collection of women, each with their own ideas about what it means to be Jewish. "Sara, an unemployed young Jewish woman, thinks an infertile Orthodox couple's ad offering $50,000 for a Jewish egg donor might solve her financial difficulties," according to promotional materials. "But when she meets the deeply observant wife Neshama, Sara faces questions about her own Jewish authenticity." After the performance, enjoy refreshments and a talk led by Rabbi Michael Siegel about Jews by Choice. Buy tickets online by visiting or calling 800-838-3006, ext. 1.
