“Meorot”, a new performing arts program that provides Orthodox girls with an outlet for performing arts, will have its first performance on Sunday, March 3rd. The program began this past October in Bergen County and had 50 participants from all over the tri-state area.
“Meorot” is directed and produced by the director of NCSY’s summer program Camp Maor, Sari Kahn. Camp Maor, like “Meorot” is a performing arts camp in July which has majors such as, acting, voice and dance. With help of Miriam Pfeiffer, NCSY’s summer program co-chair, Kahn began “Meorot” based on the model used in other parts of the US and Israel. The “Meorot” staff also includes, musical director, Enny Wax, and dance instructor, Nadine Waintraub. Both have impressive backgrounds in performing arts. In addition to the production itself, the night will also have a boutique before and after the performance. The proceeds of the “Meorot” performance and boutique will be given to both the 21 NCSY summer programs and the local Tomchei Shabbos. The theme of the performance is “Shabbos Through My Daughter’s Eyes” and is closely related to the mission of NCSY to introduce unaffiliated Jewish teenagers to Jewish life experience, especially Shabbat. The show will also include a bonus performance by sisters, Naomi Schiff and Sorah Saffren. The “Meorot” performance will be held on Sunday, March 3rd at 7:30 PM at the Dwight-Morrow High School in Englewood.
