Lastly… it’s a difficult time all around, so we’re not expecting anyone to donate.
But if you’d like to help keep our organization going through this very difficult time, we still have to pay rent on our brand new theater and classroom space, even though we can’t use them!
If you value our programming and if you can actually spare it, feel free to donate using the button below. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowable by law, and it will help us produce more exciting online programming and allow us to keep our space so we can bring you top notch, live, in-person Yiddish programming when this horrible virus business is over.
