B'yachad Breakfast with David Benkof ("The Broadway Maven")
Five Great Jewish Broadway Shows…That are NOT Fiddler

Join us on Sunday, May 19 at 10:00 am for a B'yachad Breakfast with speaker David Benkof "The Broadway Maven." 

Broadway is widely known to be "very Jewish" in terms of theater makers and theatergoers, but shows with Jewish content are much rarer. Here are five great shows with Jewish characters and plots that are NOT Fiddler on the RoofFalsettosRagtimeParadeThe Band's Visit, and Harmony. The shows will be presented with plenty of clips and time for questions.

David Benkof, “The Broadway Maven,” has been teaching Broadway appreciation and Jewish Culture 101 online for more than four years. The author of two books, he holds a master's degree from Stanford in history and taught in-person high school and adult education for many years. With his online courses, David aims to help students think more deeply about musical theater. His thorough knowledge and love for Broadway is triply expressed: his Weekly Blast, his classes, and his YouTube channel. 

He lives in Jerusalem, and will be joining us via Zoom. For more information, check out “The Broadway Maven” on YouTube or Google, and you will get an idea of the fun morning we have planned.

Breakfast will be served at 10:00 am, and the program will begin at 10:30 am - please note the earlier start-time.

The cost is $8 for advanced registration (Please RSVP by Thursday, May 16) and $10 at the door.
