Minnesota Jewish Theater Company is marking a major milestone – this is our 18th birthday. In the Jewish culture, the number 18 has special significance. You may know that the Hebrew word “chai” means “life” in English. It also symbolizes the value of life and all the hope that accompanies it. What is the connection between “chai” and 18? In Hebrew, each letter has a numeric value, and the word “chai” is spelled with two Hebrew letters that equal 18.
For these special birthdays there is a Jewish tradition of giving monetary gifts in multiples of $18 as a good omen for life.
Although our 2012-2013 Season has come to a close, there are still events to look forward to! We hope you'll join us for the Association for Jewish Theatre's 32nd Annual Conference June 2-5, 2013.
Be the first to hear about our upcoming season at a very special dinner on June 6, 2013.
