Theater at Darom – The Torah of Transformation

Pirkei Avot records our ancient sages attempts to identify the three pillars on which our world stands. In this spirit, I want to offer my own statement of the three things upon which the World of Theater at Ramah Darom relies: Courage – Ometz, Kindness – Chesed and Flexibility – Gimishut. Reflecting on over 10 years of […]

Everyone was freshly back in school (classes only started after Labor Day), shorts and t-shirts were replaced by jeans and light sweaters, colorful leaves began to […]
