“ARRIVALS” A Jewish Romeo & Juliet love story based on historical events. A hit in Seattle, coming to New York.

About this event

Presented by the American Sephardi Federation, the Seattle Jewish Theatre Company and the Sephardic Jewish Brotherhood of America

When the first Sephardic Jew arrived in Seattle in 1902, not everything went as planned. Marco Cordova, a young Sephardic Jew from Turkey, came to America to make his fortune. Bayla Keigelman, a fragile Ashkenazi girl from Russia, arrived fleeing a pogrom. Their meeting seemed written in the stars until tradition declared their love forbidden. (Written and Directed by Art Feinglass).
