Farewell, TJT. After Thirty-Four Years, Stories and Gratitude: The Videos.

On May 14, 2012, at the “Final Farewell to Traveling Jewish Theatre” at the Z Space in San Francisco, around 300 friends, colleagues, supporters, past and present board members, audience members and companions of the road joined co-founders Albert Greenberg, Naomi Newman and myself (Corey Fischer), former member Helen Stoltzfus, former artistic director Aaron Davidman and executive director Sara Schwartz Geller in celebrating the company’s history and legacy.

Below, I’ve made a link  to each individual video clip that I’ve uploaded so far. These are exceptional acts of witness to the history and Legacy that TJT carries.   I will be adding to this initial offering as soon as possible.  There’s a lot more where this came from. Please let your friends know about the clips by sharing this post and please leave a “reply” below to let me know you were here and, if you wish, to respond to what you see.
