With the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center and the activeness of Chabad, the Student Jewish Group, Stockton has a history of honoring, preserving, and teaching Jewish history and culture.
On Sunday, November 14 at 2 p.m., Stockton will continue that tradition and host the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene at the Performing Arts Center.
The group will perform the “Ghetto Tango”, which is a musical adaption of stories from Polish and Lithuanian ghettos during World War II.
The musical will feature nods to the Yiddish culture itself, with traditional songs from the early 20th Century that were popular throughout Jewish communities in Eastern Europe before the Holocaust.
With this show, audiences will be immersed in a cultural experience on the realities of Jewish ghettos during World War II. Jewish-created, it will educate as well as entertain.
The performance will be in both English and Yiddish. Tickets are $25 and Stockton students, faculty, staff, children, and alumni will recieve special discounts. Tickets are available online or at the box office, which is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Monday through Thursday. They are also available 90 minutes before showtime. Call 609-652-9000.
