Trip to Theater J in DC to see “Hester Street” (In-Person)

Friday, April 12 @ 10:45 am 3:45 pm

Join us for this theatrical adaptation of the beloved 1975 film by Joan Micklin Silver. Faced with the disintegration of her marriage in a world she can barely comprehend, Gitl must find her voice, protect her son, and redefine her identity. Hester Street is an unforgettable show, awash in the humor, heartbreak and hope essential to the Jewish immigrant experience.

Following the show, we will head back home after making a stop at the fabulous Jake’s Ice Cream in Falls Church (ice cream not included in trip fee). This scoop shop employs a staff of differently-abled adults  who are dedicated to serving up 28 flavors of small-batch ice cream made on site!

Please have a hearty breakfast before arriving and/or bring a dairy or pareve lunch to be eaten at Theater J before the show. We will provide a simple snack and bottled water to be eaten on the bus (before or after the show).

Note: This trip is limited to 20 participants on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are transferable, but not refundable.

Bus departs the J at 11am and returns approximately 3:45pm.

$59 Ticket includes RT transportation, theater ticket, and snack
