Description


Witness Theater Banner

Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun and The Ramaz School invite you to a Yom HaShoah Presentation:

WiTNESS THEATER Program at Ramaz

Doors open: 6:45pm

Program begins: 7:30pm

Space is limited in the main room; please come early to reserve your seat.


This unique, live performance is the culmination of months of heartfelt collaboration between our high school students and Selfhelp’s local Holocaust survivors. It is a moving re-enactment of their lives’ most difficult and poignant moments, as portrayed by student actors and narrated by the survivors themselves. Witness Theater enables these survivors to tenderly pass their memories and legacies from one generation to another.

Become a part of the experience. We look forward to welcoming you.


Witness Theater was conceived and initiated by Irit and Ezra Dagan, and developed and expanded by JDC-Eshel, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee’s elderly division in Israel. The program was initiated in New York City in 2012 by Selfhelp Community Services. This year’s Witness Theater Program is a collaboration of Selfhelp Community Services, UJA-Federation of New York and Ramaz High School.

This program is generously funded by UJA-Federation of New York through the Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors (CIHS), The Jewish Communal Fund (JCF) and a grant from the Claims Conference (Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany).
