On January 30, 2019, the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara will host its 35th Annual Women’s Philanthropy Luncheon at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara Resort - The Biltmore from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm.

The Jewish Federation is honored to present luncheon guests with a special performance by Jewish Women’s Theatre titled Family Secrets.

Family Secrets: Secret stories of youthful indiscretions, missteps, dishonest acts and outright naughty activities that make for a moving, eye-opening, and funny show exploring events only whispered about, until now!  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.  These and other stories will tug at your heart and make you laugh.

Jewish Women’s Theatre: Mission - We strive to challenge minds, move hearts, unify peoples. And use the strength of Jewish culture to do so. Building community is our uncompromising credo. 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 a 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.
