e friendship between two members of the Jerusalem Philharmonic is tested when Hagar offers to have a child for Sarah and her husband Abraham, the orchestra’s conductor. Music invigorates this reimagining of a biblical story, which emphasizes the relationship between the women who both feel responsible for the gifted pianist born from this agreement.
hello Wesleyan community!! we (matilda & josh) just completed a two day training with IfNotNow–a movement led by young Jews leading a Jewish resistance and seeking to end American Jewish support for the occupation.
we think the goals of this movement match up with a lot of feelings that young people across our country and on this campus specifically are feeling right now: the desire to fight for freedom and dignity for all! If you’re interested in learning more about this amazing organization that is fighting for the rights of palestinians, jews, and oppressed people’s all over the world and the HUGE action that they will be doing protesting outside of the annual AIPAC conference on March 26th, come to this event! It will be an inclusive space for learning, discussing, and understanding how we can develop our desires for resistance into organizing and action.
