Machatunim w. S. Bear Bergman
Congregation Beit Simchat Torah
New York, NY
Share this event:

Family. How we create it, nurture it, and are nurtured within it; whether our family is original, chosen, or a hearty blend. Bergman's stories describe and exalt the lives of his grandparents, the hilarity of planning his wedding, his Shabbos table, and the story of Chanukah. At the same time, they make space for relationships that might feel complex or un-nameable in our daily contexts - drag mothers, step-parents emeritus, your sperm donor's parents, and more.

All are recognized in Bergman's loving stories, and all are placed within a particularly Jewish love and longing for family in which to eat, argue, and belong. Described as "mezmerizing," "touching," "hilarious," and "beautifully told," these stories are an amazing experience for anyone with a family, and a truly validating one for fellow Jews and queer-identified folks.

This performance is as warm and welcoming for straight/cis allies - family, friends, colleagues, &c - as it is for queers and transpeeps. Bring your grandparents, your Great-Aunt Flora, your folks, the people from your workplace or bowling league or synagogue or church, your reasonable exes, your gender-studies class, anybody you like.
