Private Kol Ami Reception to Follow
Directed By Eric Rosen
This fundraising event supports the Congregation’s financial stability and high quality programming such as our high holiday services.
Paula Vogel’s deeply intimate, yet joyful and funny play is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of God of Vengeance, a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture — and as an obscenity by others. Ultimately a love-letter, INDECENT charts one of the most fascinating scandals in theatre history.
