This is a critical time for Jewish storytelling and Jewish theater. With old and new forms of antisemitism rearing their heads in places both expected and unexpected – including among some of our allies and friends in the theatrical field itself – the JPP’s work to present pro-Jewish, progressive stories to thousands of audience members each year is at the forefront of standing up for our people and our culture.


The JPP is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, and all contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
