True Chutzpa – The Good, the Bad, and Esther:  An Epic Purim Western

Purim historically includes a Shpiel (play). Our Shpiel is a farcical review and includes the Purim story and current happenings. (Guess which is the farce.) Spend an evening with friends, a broasted chicken and Italian beef dinner and if you have no excuse, the Shpiel. No tickets at the door. Space is as limited as the Chicago mayoral race; so be sure to send your check today!  Sign up for a delicious dinner of broasted chicken and Italian beef and an amazing show.

Consider becoming an Angel!  Please become a proud investor of this production with a
check for $60 as a Golem or $110 as an Angel. Golems and Angels get free tickets!

No tickets at the door!  Only pre-sale!

A co-production with American Documentary POV, INDEPENDENT TELEVISION SERVICE (ITVS), and SWR in collaboration with ARTE, 93QUEEN follows RACHEL “RUCHIE” FREIER, a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the “boys club” in her Hasidic community by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in NYC.


TBI members and Friends of TBI made the holidays a little brighter for the kids at Herzl school.  Channel 7 was there to film.
