Women’s Philanthropy Luncheon Presents Jewish Women’s Theatre

The Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara will host its 35th Annual Women’s Philanthropy Luncheon, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Jan. 30 at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara Resort - The Biltmore. The event will feature a performance by Jewish Women’s Theatre titled Family Secrets.

Family Secrets explores secret stories of youthful indiscretions, missteps, dishonest act, and outright naughty activities that make for a moving, eye-opening, and funny show.

A woman is teaching a storytelling course on authenticity, but is reluctant to reveal her own truth. Twin brothers learn of their grandfather’s heroic activity in South Africa during apartheid, and discover the shocking reason why it was kept from them. A non-Jewish teen learns of her father’s first marriage and meets her Jewish half-sister and comes to realize what love really means.

Jewish Women’s Theatre says its mission is to “strive to challenge minds, move hearts, unify peoples, and use the strength of Jewish culture to do so.”

“Building community is our uncompromising credo,” it says. “Our passion is to transform stories from page to stage. We give voice to Jewish women, and celebrate untold stories important to us all. We are creative, collaborative, and devoted to excellence.

“We do what we do to empower and engage, creating legacy. It is art and it is business. It is joyful entertainment. We live committed to the good, the true, the real, and are full of gratitude.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
