This Humanities Forum will feature Rabbi Jennifer Gubitz from Temple Israel in Boston

Rabbi Jennifer Gubitz serves Temple Israel of Boston as the director of the Riverway Project, whose mission is to connect people in their 20s and 30s to Judaism and each other through Temple Israel. Ordained by Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion in New York in 2012, she was an HUC-JIR Tisch Rabbinical Fellow and is a graduate of Indiana University’s Borns Jewish Studies Program. Rabbi Gubitz grew up as a song leader and educator at URJ Goldman Union Camp Institute in Zionsville, Indiana.

The Riverway Project reaches more than 1,500 people each year through numerous ways to gather, including Riverway Shabbat, Riverway Cafe, Shabbat Squad and Seder Squad and more. Her work at Temple Israel also includes running Open Door, a program through the Center for Adult Jewish Learning for people exploring, rediscovering or converting to Judaism; supporting the Village for Families with Young Children programming beyond the synagogue walls; and developing small groups to build intimacy within a large synagogue.


We All Fall Down

by Lila Rose Kaplan | Directed by Melia Bensussen
Extended by popular demand | Jan. 10 – Feb. 16, 2020
Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, 527 Tremont St.

Linda and Saul Stein still live in the Westchester home where they raised their two beautiful daughters. But when Saul unexpectedly retires, Linda summons the family to celebrate Passover for the first time in decades. Linda tends slightly toward the theatrical (okay, a lot), and their family has never been particularly religious (okay, not at all). So their comic attempts to bring the Seder to life go from riotous to heartwrenching in this play from Huntington Playwriting Fellow and Somerville resident Lila Rose Kaplan, directed by Obie Award winner Melia Bensussen. Can this family come together, or will an age-old tradition tear them apart?

Approximate run time: We All Fall Down plays in approximately 1 hour and 35 minutes with no intermission.
