“A Radical Friendship”

Saturday, February 19, at 7 pm.

In her outstanding two-person play, “A Radical Friendship,” Jane Marla Robbins envisions an ongoing conversation between spiritual leaders Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel taking place between 1963 and 1972. In the historically accurate interchanges, Dr. King refers to the rabbi as “Father Abraham” and “my Rabbi.”

The Shomrei Torah Cultural Committee brings this production to Sonoma County in honor of Black History Month.

The play was last seen starring Ed Asner in Southern California. We are fortunate that the Raven Performing Arts Theater’s Artistic Director Steven David Martin will be directing the play with two talented local actors to portray these historic heroes.

The registration for Non-Congregation Shomrei Torah members is:

Because of the COVID restrictions, Congregation Shomrei Torah has limited in-person seating. They are offering this seating to CST members until Feb. 11. They ask non-CST members to register for Zoom and to contact Katie Evenbeck, CST’s Executive Director, if they would like to be placed on the waitlist for the in-person seating. The contact details will be in the invitation you receive.
