David Y. Chack will be stepping down and handing over the Executive Director position to Jeremy Aluma!
Judaism and theatre are my life force. The two flow through me like the inhale and exhale of breath — two aspects of my identity which cannot exist without the other. Becoming a more thoughtful, aware, and committed Jew makes me a stronger theatre director. Becoming a more innovative, open, and inspired theatre artist intensifies my connection with Judaism. I create theatre as an offering, a gateway to greater empathy. In Judaism there is a belief that empathy stirs us to great acts of kindness and generosity, and that those actions can repair the pain and suffering in the world. This is what we continuously strive for: Tikkun Olam. Every work of art I create aims to incite action from the audience beyond the stage; if they see themselves in others, perhaps they will work toward a more inclusive society.
Join us in Chicago at this year’s conference to meet Jeremy and to bid David farewell - celebrating all that AJT has become and what is in store for the future!
