Community of Friends

We invite you to join our Community of Friends

Couple: 1,000 NIS, Single: 500 NIS

For more than 20 years, the Jaffa theatre has exposed visitors to diverse productions that discuss the engagement of Jewish, Arab, and Middle Eastern cultures in the pursuit of fostering an accepting atmosphere.

Igal Ezraty, General Manager, Gaby Aldor, Co-Artistic Director, and Rauda Sliman, Arabic Stage Director, have made the Jaffa Theatre home for Arab and Jewish artists. They are creators who grapple with questions of identity within society.

The theatre offers a repertoire of bilingual plays in Hebrew and Arabic and has presented more than 80 productions including: “Queen of Bathtub,” “Oum Kalthoum,” “Nights of Yaffo – Let’s Dance 1919-2019,” and “Consensual Murder.”

The theatre hosts literary evenings, songs, music, and produces annual festivals: “The Festival of Contemporary Arab Culture,” “The Yaffa Children’s Festival,” “The Women’s Festival,” and “Theatronetto” festival of one-man shows.

To support the theatre’s mission of promoting inclusivity between Arab and Hebrew cultures, we would be delighted to welcome you into our “Community of Friends.”

Joining our “Community of Friends will grant you free admission to two plays in exchange for 500 NIS ($150) tax-deductible for the season along with other programs, such as events and meetings with Arab and Jewish artists, at reduced prices.

We look forward to welcoming you to the “Community of Friends” and working together to promote an artistic tradition of co-existence between Arabs and Jews in Jaffa and throughout Israel.
