NJTF LogoThe National Jewish Theater Foundation- Holocaust Theater International Initiative invites your participation in our 2nd annual Holocaust Remembrance Day Play Readings to be held on 5/2/2016. Monday has been chosen to avoid audience conflicts and competing with events previously planned for Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) that falls this year on 5/ 5/ 2016.

Last year our pilot inaugural “Monday before” event honoring the victims and survivors of the Holocaust involved more than a dozen theaters, universities, Jewish organizations and embassies throughout the U.S.A. Each selected their choice of a play to read from our NJTF Holocaust Theater Catalog ( All followed their reading with a conversation or panel discussion that included their audiences. These simultaneous events took place in San Diego, New York, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Chicago, cities in Florida, affirming the unique power of theater in Holocaust awareness and education.

Please go to and find Remembrance Readings. You will be able to read more about this program and find a form to register your organizations information. This project is greater than any one institution and encourages collaboration among Artists, Educators, Holocaust Memorial Organizations and all people who collectively wish to use theater as an artistic and moral compass that educates and inspires current and future generations. Thank You and if you have any questions please ask them using NJTF website.
