Our Objectives

All About Jewish Theatre strives to make the history and present of Jewish culture accessible to all, at any time, from any place. We plan to achieve this by fulfilling the following objectives:

  • Promote, cultivate and digitally distribute the study of Jewish theatre and performing arts
  • Provide an interactive global network for audiences, researchers and theatre artists worldwide
  • Encourage and foster the creation of contemporary and original Jewish theatre

How it all started...

In December 2001, thirty Jewish theatre directors and academics from around the world met in Tel Aviv at a conference titled “Towards a Vibrant and Coherent Theatre of the Jewish People,” hosted by the Jewish Agency’s People to People Center. They concluded with the decision to establish a Jewish theatre network on the web.

Pursuant to the conference, the Jewish Agency asked Moti Sandak to plan and design this Jewish theatre website, to be based on his own initiative and ten years of research in Jewish theatre, rare collection of plays and professional articles, connections with leading libraries and databases around the world, and three years of accumulated research in Internet information technology together with European R&D institutions.

Since its launch in 2003, All About Jewish Theatre has become the leading source of information on Jewish theatre and performing arts, working in collaboration with leading artists and researchers, as well as cultural, preservation and academic institutions worldwide. It puts all the information on Jewish theatre at your fingertips, on one single website. It puts all the information on Jewish theatre at your fingertips, on one single website.

In 2008, All About Jewish Theatre was featured in Facing Tomorrow, President Shimon Peres' first international conference, which took place in Jerusalem. The Virtual Museum of Jewish Theatre and Performing Arts, the second phase of All About Jewish Theatre, was selected to take part in the conference exhibition, displaying the 60 most exciting upcoming projects to be launched in Israel.
