Host Testimonials

“CJP has been a proud supporter of Israeli Stage from the very beginning as season sponsors and as touring sponsors, helping bring Israeli Stage’s vital, diverse and artistic programming to college campuses in the Greater Boston Area. We feel Israeli Stage is a great way to promote Israeli culture and spark conversation among young adults and all theatre goers about Israeli society in all of its nuances.” Barry Shrage, President of Combined Jewish Philanthropies Boston

“Israeli Stage is an invaluable part of our campus Israel engagement strategy.  Students connect their world through culture and the arts, and Israeli Stage makes this possible.  Israeli Stage has produced dozens of performances at area campus, and with each one, students get a little closer to Israel.” Matt Lebovic, Senior Campus Program Officer at CJP

“At BU Hillel, we were blown away by how many students attended and related to Anat Gov’s Oh, God. Israeli Stage captured our students hearts and minds to not only think about where the play originated from, but also guided our students in thinking about their own Jewish identity. I would highly recommend Israeli Stage to all student audiences across North America, and if you have the opportunity to have a performance at your school, all you will have to do is sit back and watch the magic happen as the performance will transform your students.” Jennifer Gutman, Israel Engagement Associate at Boston University

“Israeli Stage has brought talented, professional actors to perform a substantive, beautiful work of art for students and community members at Brown RISD Hillel.” Sara Miller, Senior Israel Engagement Fellow at Brown University

“It was such a gift for the community to work with Guy Ben-Aharon and Israeli Stage to bring Savyon Liebrecht’s The Banality of Love. Israeli Stage offered us a wonderful opportunity to share Israeli culture locally, providing a rich framework for genuine dialogue among attendees afterwards about some of the complex issues raised by this award-winning play.” Arinne Braverman, Executive Director of Northeastern University Hillel

“Israeli Stage is an amazing initiative. It exposed my students vividly and authentically to rarely heard voices from Israel. It was a unique cultural experience, and I enthusiastically recommend it as an educational tool as much as an aesthetic pleasure.” Irit Aharony, Harvard University Faculty

“Israeli Stage has been a pleasure to work with. The acting was superb and the play (Oh God) was humorous, thought-provoking and an excellent vehicle for bringing a wide swath of our community together.” Marcia Zax, Co-Chair of Ithaca Area United Jewish Community
