The Jewish Project is a portrait of a Jew through ice cream and storytelling. Jared Goodman, the creator of Morgan St Theater and a RACC grant recipient, reimagines stories, ideas, and works of art with handmade ice cream desserts. This one-man show weaves personal stories of being a Jew with Jewish history and culture, exploring themes of identity, secularism vs traditionalism, the writings of Isaac Bashevic Singer and Abraham Joshua Heschel, plus some klezmer music too. Goodman will host 6 performances around the Portland metro area. Pairing storytelling with ice cream, he aims to combat the spread of anti-Semitism and educate Oregonians on Judaism and Jewishness.

The drawing of Hasidic men is by Jared’s mom, the artist, Jeanne Goodman.
