  A LAND TWICE PROMISED--AN ISRAELI WOMAN'S QUEST FOR PEACE

This is our next production in the NEW Opera House Storytelling Series. A LAND TWICE PROMISED, AN ISRAELI WOMAN'S SEARCH FOR PEACE.
Israeli storyteller Noa Baum grew up in Jerusalem in the shadow of the ancestral traumas of the holocaust and ongoing wars. Stories of the past and fear of annihilation in the wars of the 60s, 70s, and 80s shaped her perceptions and identity. In America, she met a Palestinian woman who had grown up under Israeli Occupation, and as they shared memories of war years in Jerusalem, an unlikely friendship blossomed.
A Land Twice Promised delves into the heart of one of the world's most enduring and complex conflicts.

All the fine newspaper reporting and nonfiction book writing can’t quite capture what you captured in just a few minutes of story-telling and acting. Impressive!
