SJCA: The Braid, Out Loud


Virtual Event on Zoom

Contact Phyllis Wang

Saratoga Jewish Community Arts has partnered with Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York and with the sponsorship of Temple Sinai in Saratoga Springs, along with a generous donation from Barry and Shelley Bader in memory of their daughter, Melissa Bader Lewis, to bring you the second of three programs on Zoom they have arranged with The Braid, formerly Jewish Women’s Theater.

After the incredibly well-received program in February of The Braid’s Remembrance of Things Present, we bring you the second program in this series on March 26 at 7 PM, The Braid’s Out Loud. See these daring stories of the Jewish LGBTQIA+ community (risk it all to be yourself!). Out Loud is a new work of theater from The Braid live on Zoom. For those of you who may want to view the live zoom, but are not available on the 26th, there is an afternoon Zoom performance on Sunday, March 19, at 2:00 PM. These performances are real experiences, brought to life by professional actors. This program, like others in their repertoire, will be followed by a Q&A session with the performers.

The Braid, in its fourteenth season, is the go-to Jewish story company and leading non-profit organization, creating, curating, producing, and preserving stories grounded in Jewish culture and experience. Through its performances and programming, The Braid empowers artists and audiences to feel pride in Jewish culture while building community and connection between people of all backgrounds. Founded in Santa Monica, California, in 2007, The Braid has affiliates in two cities, holds tours across the country, is now accessible globally via Zoom performances, and is available on online platforms. The Braid remains true to its founding commitment of giving voice to Jewish stories that haven’t been heard, whether those are stories by women, Jews of Color, or Jews from other diverse backgrounds. “We are an organization started by a group of women who know what it means to be outsiders, to exist in the margins of culture, and to be stereotyped.”

“SJCA is thrilled to present Out Loud following the most remarkable response to last month’s Braid offering,” says Phyllis Wang, Coordinator of Saratoga Jewish Community Arts.

To register and receive Zoom access to The Braid programming Out Loud on March 26th at 7:00 PM or the extra performance on March 19th at 2:00 PM, email Registration will be confirmed with an email, and you will be sent the access code two days before the program.
