Mission

NJT_V1_B_RGBThe New Jewish Theatre is dedicated to the exploration of universal themes and issues and the examination of the full range of the human experience filtered through the lens of the Jewish
experience. Through the medium of theatre, we build bridges of multi-cultural understanding, tolerance, communication and education.

History

The New Jewish Theatre was an outgrowth of the long history of theatre programming of the Jewish Community Center. In 1997, the need was recognized to develop a professional theatre program with programming that reflected the Jewish experience. Since its inception, the theatre has continued to grow at an exponential rate, both in size and in quality. The original season of three productions of eight performances has expanded to the current season’s five productions of 12 performances each.

The New Jewish Theatre’s home is the state-of-the-art Marvin & Harlene Wool Studio Theater, located in the Arts & Education Building of the J’s Staenberg Family Complex.
