Monument Unveilings

Please Allow Two Weeks

a

York City of the Jewish
Theater Association, ac-
cording to Richard Siegel,
supervisor of the project.
More than 2,000 persons
attended the conference, a
three-day event in June
which combined live per-
formances, workshops,
panels, playreading and
films.
Abraham Atik, executive
director of the National
Foundation for Jewish Cul-
ture, said the conference at-
tracted participants from
all over North America, and
from Israel, France and
Belgium. Siegel said plans
were under way for a second
festival next year to further
develop the goals of the the-
ater association and provide
additional exposure to the
creative work being done in
the field of Jewish theater.
Siegel said the festival
was "highly successful"
in achieving its major go-
als: to provide an oppor-
tunity for individuals and
groups involved in
Jewish theater to see one
another's work arid dis-
cuss common concerns;
to provide a showcase for
producers and pro-
grammers to see a variety
of productions during
one concentrated period,
and to expose broader
audiences to the contem-
porary revival of Jewish
theater in America.
The foundation an-
nounced establishment of
an Ida Kaminska award, to
be given annually for con-
tributions to the Jewish
theater. The award was es-
tablished in memory of the
late Yiddish actress.
The association's "Plays
of Jewish Interest: A Pre-
liminary Catalogue," was
edited by Edward Cohen.
The catalogue lists and de-
scribes more than 200 plays
relating to aspects of Jewish
experience, life and culture.

Among those who stand,
do not sit; among those who
sit, do not stand. Among
those who laugh, do not
weep; among those who
weep, do not laugh.
— Hillel
