I attended "The Band's Visit" on Broadway. An amazing musical about an Egyptian police band that goes to the wrong town in Israel for a performance. They are forced to make friends with the Israelis and learn to live with them for a night. The show is about how we are not as different as we think and how important love is. I learned so much about Israel and how culture is more than just boundary lines!
I saw a local production of "Fiddler on the Roof." I saw this play at my friend's sister's middle school. I have heard of this story, but had never actually seen the movie or the play until recently. The biggest takeaway I got from this story was that a grim life can be much better by keeping Jewish culture alive and staying close with other Jews.
