Dirah L'Haskir.png

“In a beautiful Valley, amidst fields and flowers, stands all alone a five-story tower.” Four animals
live in this tower and they are looking for a new tenant. Dirah le-Haskir (Apartment for Rent) is a classic Israeli story by the famed author
Leah Goldberg. The story has been voted the most
beloved Israeli tale of all time and deals with the
universal issues of peace, tolerance, and community.
The Up a Tree Puppetry duo (Peter Olson and
Ilan Vitemberg) brings this story to life in a fun,
acrobatic, and interactive way with hand-made
puppets and original set.

The show is appropriate for children ages two to eight and their families. Healthy snacks
will be provided.

RSVP to Noa Albaum at nalbaum@jewishlearningworks.org or 415.567.3327 x 703.
