L'Dor v'Dor, Part I: Aliyah

Jewish Plays Project Semi-Finalist, 2021 


L’Dor v’Dor : Aliyah explores assimilation, identity and what we inherit from the generations who have gone before us though the story of one ordinary American family on the morning of their daughter’s bat mitzvah. One act. Racially and age diverse cast.


Cast: 2 M, 3 F.

"The Jewish Plays Project recommends L'DOR v'DOR as a Semi-Finalist for the 11th annual Jewish Playwriting Contest. Our community of readers highly enjoyed how this play vocalized the inner struggles of a biracial Jewish multi-generation family in a way that feels fresh and different. This play asks: what can be gleaned from past generations as we move forward with our lives? and addresses the difficulty in moving forward. L'DOR v'DOR rose to the top 20 out of 250 plays and we hope this play swiftly finds opportunities to reach new audiences."
