importance of who we are as
a people is based on the vitali-
ty of our cultural image, that
culture is our soul food," she
adds. "They just don't udners-
tand the life-and-death issue
that this represents.
"Certainly," says Newman,
"they understand that we
need synagogues, education,
help for the elderly and
Israel. But culture?"
"Organizational structures
in the Jewish community are
just not interested, not equip-
ped to deal with these situa-
tions," says Goldman. "Jewish
organizations often do not see
their mandate as funding
Jewish culture."
"Part of that attitude stems
from America's approach to
the arts," Goldman adds.
"Our own government doesn't
see it as its responsibility to
fund the arts."
That's true, says Newman.
"It is very difficult to sustain
any theater in this country,"
she says. "Small theaters are
closing all around the coun-
try?'
Plays that stress art more
than broad appeal often face
financial stress. "There is a
very commercial attitude
toward theater in this coun-
try," says Newman.
This attitude only com-
pounds the difficulties
already faced by Jewish
theaters,-which must also do
battle with the indifference of
Jewish organizations, says
Brechner. "These organiza-
tions' whole raison d'etre is
maintaining their own em-
pire" he says. "They don't see
the possibilities of culture."
Not all agree with
Brechner. Fran Brumlik,
managing director of the Na-
tional Jewish Theater, a pro-
fessional ensemble in
Chicago, praises the country's
Jewish community cneters for
their commitment to the
Jewish stage.
"If not for their backing,"
she says, "Jewish theater
would not survive in this
country?'
Dorothy Silver, director of
visual/performing arts for the
Halle Theater of the
Cleveland Jewish Communi-
ty Centers, disagrees.
"Are the community
centers living up to their
responsibility? No," she says.
"And if the JCC can't commit
to Jewish culture, then who
can? It's a dangerous time"
for Jewish theater.
Especially when it comes to
funding. Patricia Appino of
Philadelphia's Studio Y
Players concedes that "the
first thing that goes when
there's a lack of money is the
cultural programs, and that
