Participate in the 5th Annual Remembrance Readings

Remembrance Play Readings is an annual event utilizing the power of theatrical readings and Holocaust plays you or your organizations select from the National Jewish Theater Foundation-Holocaust Theater International Initiative Catalog (http://htc.miami.edu). We would appreciate your participation occurring on or around Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day (5/1/ & 5/2).
 
Register here (www.njtfoundation.org/participate-readings) for National Jewish Theater Foundation Holocaust Theater International Initiative (NJTF HTII) Readings and share this invitation with your constituents. Help us use theater to keep the memory of the holocaust and its lessons alive forever.
 
Launched in 2015 to honor Yom HaShoah, Remembrance Readings has expanded to include the use of theater presentations to recognize all major Holocaust Remembrance Days including Kristallnacht – Night of Broken Glass (10/9, 10/10) and International Holocaust Memorial Day (1/27).
 
2016: Theaters, high schools, universities and memorial museums participated from 11 cities and states including Washington – D.C., New York City, San Diego and Chicago.
 
2017: NJTF HTII honored Elie Wiesel for his plays with readings of them across America and at Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts, NYC. Mr. and Mrs. Wiesel were presented with the NJTF HTII Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the Lincoln Center Reading.
 
2018: Remembrance Readings included UK outreach in honor of Holocaust Memorial Day 1/27. NJTF HTII sponsored London theatrical events that supported the mission of UK Holocaust Education Trust (HET) and UK Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT).
 
2019: Legendary actors Ed Asner and Tovah Feldshuh are touring nationally with readings of the Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen. Play originally produced and filmed in NYC by NJTF HTII.
