There is nothing more precious than the Jewish woman.
We have so much to say. We have so many faces, feel so many things, experience through our souls and see the world deeply. We are responsible for the values of our families and are the gatekeeper, the port of entry, to what can enter and to what is not allowed. We are the soft, protective, skin to our family’s bodies, bodies that grow minute by minute, day by day, and year by year. We build and maintain those bodies. They are the fruit of our labor. We are responsible for identifying illness and providing nutrition. We protect, nurture and guide. We are firm and strong willed. We are sensual. We are the core of existence. Life begins in us. We struggle, we cry, we give, we inspire, we hurt, we speak, we emanate peace.
I began Professional Women’s Theater in 2006 with this concept in mind although not fully articulated.
Our souls are the engine for our lives but where is the time, where is the space?
The Jewish Women’s Talent Agency is built to tap this thirsty market of women for women performance venues. All-female audiences need to be accepted by the community as mainstream; just like a women’s gym, hair salon, or mikvah. The Jewish Women’s Talent Agency serves the untapped markets of both the performers and audience members. We enable female performers to have a venue and enable the venue to be quenched with inspiration. Our audiences will reap sustenance from their performers, similar to how a fetus feeds from its mother. Through the talent agency, women can give back to the community that so desperately needs their energy and vitality.
A woman can now breathe. We are all together. “Ein Hasdash Tachat Hashmesh”. We have been doing this for generations! We cry and laugh and open one another’s eyes to the world of our womanhood. We are gitty and tickled by the gleeful reminder that we are, still who we are, though our forms have changed. Our faces are brighter, our minds, more calm… Serenity is in the home and the presence of G-d dwells within.
