NATIONAL JEWISH THEATRE FOUNDATION
2007, the National Jewish Theater Foundation – National Jewish Theater
(NJTF) has presented theatrical works that celebrate the richness of
Jewish heritage and culture. Under the leadership of its founder and
President, Arnold Mittelman, the NJFT promotes the appreciation and
preservation of Jewish musical and dramatic theatrical artists. As one
of the foremost performing arts organization to focus exclusively on
Jewish theater, NJTF is committed to educating the public on Jewish
content and themes. NJTF productions are presented to diverse audiences
across America and throughout the world.
Recent productions have included the NYC critically-acclaimed production of The Soap Myth
by Jeff Cohen produced live and on film, Words By Ira Gershwin
, by Joseph Vass, and Rothschilds & Son
s, music and lyrics by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick with book by Sherman Yellen.
Jewish history and artistry inspired the leaders of NJTF to launch the
Holocaust Theater International Initiative that examines through
research, education, and production how one of the greatest
catastrophes in Jewish and World history has been made more
understandable through the insights, creativity, and courage of Jewish
theater artists and others of differing backgrounds.
