Space of Wonder

Engaging the Younger Generation with Yiddish

Kadimah and Space of Wonder come together in the exciting space combining Yiddish culture and language, with theatre – a space Kadimah are well versed in!

These theatre workshops for young people aged 5-12 create a safe and supportive environment to explore ones creativity. Lead by director Romi Kupfer, these workshops aim to collaborate with the young artists to make our own Yiddish theatre. Exploring different topics per term with a performative outcome for friends and family at the end, these workshops are for young artists who are interested in the world, having a voice and contributing to a space where all are celebrated for who we are.
