The Jewish Studies program at Ithaca College invites you to attend a performance by Israeli Stage of the play Oh, God. In Anat Gov’s touching comedy about faith in secular society, a psychotherapist named Ella, single mother of an autistic child, gets a visit from a new, desperate patient, God.
The play, presented as a staged reading, will be performed on Sunday, January 26, at 3 pm in the Emerson Suites.
The play is free and open to the public. A suggested donation of $10 will be requested in support of “Lunch and Learn,” an after school tutoring program in Israel for children at risk. Donations may be made online at www.iaujc.org or at the door by check or cash.
