Imagine hearing your grandfather’s voice for the first time in 30 years telling you what it was like to take a boat from the old country without speaking a word of English or having more than 25 cents to his name. Or maybe listening to your cousin talk about borrowing money (with no interest) to open a store. How about hearing your aunt describe baking biscochos or making matzo ball soup, just like her mother did? You can experience these moving moments during a live performance that will take you into the lives of early Jewish pioneers in the state of Washington – some of whom you may remember, others whom you will discover for the very first time.
