Family History & Traditions

Women In Theater is proud to run a stimulating educational program in parallel with our performance preparations. This year, as "Fiddler on The Roof" was our subject matter, we ran a lecture series on Eastern European Jewry- particularly the Pale of Settlement, the history, culture and traditions. Simultaneously, our cast and crew were encouraged to delve in to their own family histories, traditions, and values. Below, please find links to the family history and traditions books we have compiled with the cast’s family histories. Thank you to everyone involved- we have learned so much.
