Members of the Case Western Reserve University are invited to join the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program to kick off the national tour of the online production of The Scribe.
In ancient Jerusalem, Ezra and Nehemiah assign the reluctant Scribe with a daunting task intended to save the Children of Israel. But before he can reconcile the multiple and conflicting source texts into the Torah we know today, the Scribe must first confront his doubts, his people’s history, and his longing for the good-old-days of exile in Babylon.
The online production of The Scribe will be held Wednesday, Nov. 3, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. It was written and will be performed by Jesse Bernstein. The performance will be followed by Q&A with Bernstein.
This program is offered in partnership with Interplay Jewish Theatre (Cleveland) and Theatre Ariel (Philadelphia) and also in partnership with the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.
When registering for The Scribe, attendees also will be automatically registered for the panel discussion “Who Wrote The Bible?” This will be held one week later on Wednesday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. ET.
