Beth-El Night at the Circle Theatre

Beth-El Night at the Circle Theatre

Saturday, February 28, at 8:00 pm


Don't let this special night pass you by!  The Temple has reserved the entire theatre!

  • A world-class PLAY, My Name is Asher Lev, by Chaim Potok
  • Metroplex-EXCLUSIVE
  • A JEWISH audience—Beth-El has the entire theater!
  • A panel of RABBIS for a discussion after the play
  • AND, a dessert and wine RECEPTION
  • The PRICE: $30 per person

Are you intrigued?  Good!  The story behind Asher Lev is that of a Chasidic boy prodigy who must be a painter—at all costs. In post-war Brooklyn, artists were not exactly valued by the Chasidic movement.

What  you need to do:  We have the entire theater—all 125 seats reserved for us.  Call the Temple or click here to make your reservations between December 1 and December 31.  After that, we will open  reservations to the Jewish community.

If you are already a member of Circle Theatre, call them and reserve your seats, and tell them that you are part of Beth-El Congregation.  Then, email Trudie Oshman or call the Temple at 817-332-7141 and let us know that you have your seats reserved.  Circle Theatre will credit the Temple, but we need to know for the number of spaces remaining.
