Rebecca! Mother of Two Dynasties
Raise Your Spirits Theatre was thrilled to have additional performances of its production of the original Biblical musical REBECCA! Mother of Two Dynasties, October 27th, 2021, at the Heichal Hatarbut Gush Etzion, November 3rd at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, and December 12th at the Heichal Hatarbut in Bet Shemesh.
We are now hanging up our REBECCA costumes and planning our next show God willing. But for now, please buy our album (for everyone) and/or our video (for women) so if you missed REBECCA on stage, you can enjoy it in your home!
We rehearsed throughout COVID-19 and are grateful to Hashem to have reached this time.
It was both a challenge and a blessing. Performances were for women and girls and in accordance with the guidelines of Israel’s Ministry of Health.
We perform with the encouragement and support of the Matanel Foundation.
and also welcome donations.
This flyer is based on an original drawing by Rahamim Melamed-Cohen (1937–2020), a renowned Israeli educator, diagnosed with ALS, who was expected to live five years. He lived 25 years, and, using an eye-operated computer keyboard, he wrote many books and produced exquisite paintings and drawings. He has been an inspiration to Israelis and to others around the world.
SHOFETET (JUDGE in Hebrew) was performed on February 5, 7 and 13, 2019, in the Gush Etzion Community Center Theater, and February 18, 21 and 24, 2019, in Jerusalem, at the state-of-the-art theater in the Shalva Center!
In Jerusalem, by performing in the beautiful auditorium of Shalva, we were contributing to their important work.
How we began
In 2001, amidst an atmosphere of grief and terror, a group of women in Gush Etzion joined together to raise the spirits of their community and all of Israel.
Rather than succumb to the depression caused by daily terror attacks, they decided to start a project that would give them a positive outlet and something wonderful to look forward to. They decided to put on a show. The rest, as they say, is history. Read more about who we are
