About Us

Theatre Kavanah produces powerful and entertaining works that explore the rich, delicious, funny, complicated, sometimes difficult reality of what it is to be Jewish. Through our productions, we celebrate the Jewish experience and spark dialogue around issues of prejudice, acceptance, assimilation, survival, and cultural identity. By partnering with community organizations, schools, synagogues, and interfaith collaboratives, we recognize and share the universality of these issues.
