I have a very painful argument with Ms. Churchill about boycotting Israel`s stages for so long. Her stand towards us- Israeli artists – is unexpected [corrected to UNACCEPTABLE–see comment].
BUT her play “7 Jewish kids” has such a moral value, and such an important role in attracting the attention of people all over the world towards the evil war in Gaza,that I feel that it is necessary to bring it to the Jewish people in the US.
I said it before on the stage of “The Accident” in theater J and I`ll repeat it :
It is our moral obligation to look at the faces of the hundreds of the innocent Gaza children who were killed during so many ” hit-and-run accidents” of theIsraeli recent war.
We have to look deep into our souls and realize:How did we become like that?
Churchill`s play deals with it. One can`t avoid it.
Theater J`s decision to read publicly the play is one of the necessary steps to begin the Tikun [repair] or at least- the discussion.
