Association for Jewish Theatre (AJT)

Words of Wisdom : Let us not only count our days, but make our days count. [ Susan Lodish ]

The Association is dedicated to promoting the interests of its members in North America and Worldwide whose primary mission is the development and production of plays relevant to Jewish life and values. The functions of the Association include advocacy, coordination, cooperative programming, communication and the publication at regular intervals of a newsletter. It is implicit that the Association will keep membership informed of current trends in Jewish Theater, applicable legislation and other issues, which affect theaters. The Association will help disseminate new materials.

a) The Association will promote Jewish Theatre locally, nationally and internationally, thereby increasing visibility and viability of those theaters that are dedicated to a Jewish mission.

b) The Association will work to educate the Jewish community regarding the value of promoting and making use of Jewish theater as a tool for Jewish continuity, understanding, education and as a bridge to the community at large.

c) The Association will work to help develop pathways for member theatres to cooperatively develop new projects.

AJT also hosts an annual conference hosted in different cities by a member theatre each year. The conference gives members an opportunity to get together to network and share ideas. In addition, each theatre or individual member is entitled to a page on the Association website.
