B’rukhim Haba’im: Stories of Welcome empathically presents the
heartwarming experiences of isolated Jewish seniors in the Triangle area sharing their universal stories of welcome.
Through a series of storytelling workshops, facilitated by Burning Coal Theatre Company, the participating seniors will write and record their personal stories of welcome. These short films will then be displayed at an exhibit at the City of Raleigh (COR) Museum in June 2022.
We welcome you to experience this unique offering of human kindness.
Through your support, we can create an inspiring and uplifting multi-media exhibit. Click here to donate today.
