SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Jewish Community Arts, in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York and sponsorship of Temple Sinai in Saratoga Springs, have contracted with The Braid, formerly Jewish Women’s Theater, to bring a three-program sequence in 2023 to its SJCA series. Each of The Braid programs will be on Zoom.
The Braid, in its 14th season, empowers artists and audiences to feel pride in Jewish culture while building community and connection between people of all backgrounds.
The first program takes place 7 p.m. Feb. 5; with The Braid is Remembrance of Things Present, true stories from the descendants of Holocaust survivors. The program will be followed by a Q &A session.
Remembrance of Things Present will discover how the son and grandson of Tuvia Bielski contend with the legacy of a hero. Witness a daughter’s struggle as her father’s testimony to the Shoah Project video archive reopens old wounds. Feel inspired as a daughter of a French Resistance fighter is called to her own life of activism.
