Theatrical Production 6 PM Starring Jake Goodman in Kaddish
Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:

Produced and Directed by: Barbara Lanciers

Kaddish, from the Jewish prayer of mourning, is the stage adaptation of Hungarian-born writer Imre Kertész's novel, Kaddish for an Unborn Child. In it, the central character recites Kaddish for the child he refuses to bring into a world that has permitted the existence of the Holocaust.

He presents a deeply personal stream of consciousness of the unseen casualties of war, political corruption, Jewish identity and the humor of living. A survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Kertész received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2002 "for writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history."

Jake Goodman is a New York based performer, Jewish educator and community organizer.

"I am very happy these young people understood my text and did such a wonderful selection and interpretation for the stage." Imre Kertész

Kaddish is the first production in the new 2014-15 Theatre Season at the J.
