Warwick Weekend Sunday: GAMM: Free Discussion of ‘Bad Jews’

On Sunday, March 12, after the matinee performance of Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews (approx. 3:45 pm – attendance is encouraged but not required) Rabbi Sarah Mack, Senior Rabbi of Temple Beth-El on Providence’s East Side since 2003, will lead a discussion about the play.

This discussion aims to enhance the theater’s production of Bad Jews. This dark and often uproarious comedy explores serious themes about the obligations and limitations of identity, and the lack of consensus about who or what constitutes “good” or “bad.” At a time of rising antisemitism, this play examines the meaning of Jewish identity in our times. Within any religion or culture, can one’s debt to the past and aspirations for the future comfortably coexist?

This event is open to the public at no charge.
