First Friday on Thursday is Back at Bonai with Women of Resolution

What do you get when you cross an organization that strongly values inclusion and social action with another whose mission is to create original theater to facilitate dialogue on critical issues and sprinkle in a spiritual leader with a background in performing arts? You get a creative collaboration between Bonai Shalom and Motus Theater!

“Women of Resolution:  We Were Strangers” is a program that shares the stories of four women who sought sanctuary to avoid being deported and separated from their families – told by Bonai Shalom community members. Join us for this inspirational, eye-opening program sponsored by Bonai Shalom’s First Friday and Social Action Committee. Performers for this event include:

  • Anna Hanson
  • Jessica Hersh
  • Rabbi Rosalie Osian
  • Charna Rosenholtz
  • Teresita Lozano

This program is part of Motus Theater’s Shoebox Stories and We Were Strangers projects – which bring together Jewish leaders who demonstrate moral courage and civic hospitality as they embody the personalities and read the stories, reflecting personally and theologically as they see the world through the eyes of an undocumented immigrant. 

One of the speakers, Anna Hanson, says about the project, “I am honored to be a part of this great program. It is important that we recognize and celebrate the bravery and strength of these women.” Bonai Shalom Social Action Committee member, Beth Ornstein has helped to coordinate this program and states, “These stores are inspiring and I am very excited to experience this version of the program with photographs and a live singer!”

Join Bonai Shalom and Motus Theater on Thursday, September 10 at 7:00 pm on Zoom for this powerful program. Registration is required, and we are asking that if you have the capacity, to make a donation to Motus Theater so they can continue to bring engaging projects to communities across Colorado and the country.
