Robbie Gringras' New Show this Wednesday at JTS

The first scene is about a new oleh’s (immigrant to Israel) computer’s Brit Milah: “I needed Hebrew letters on my computer keyboard. The time had come for my computer to convert to Judaism.” I’ve seen Gringras perform, teach, and speak – he’s quite talented; he’s able to entertain and educate in a way that is both serious and playful, all in good taste. I’ll be there this Wednesday – I hope some other Jewschoolers can make it out as well!
