An innovative play finds common ground with the values of Yad Sarah

At the "Tsavta" Auditorium in Tel Aviv, a series of unique performances is being staged. The actors read the plays rather than perform them, without lighting effects or staging of any kind. One such play is "Gezera Shava," a Hebrew expression meaning equal treatment or equal judgement, and deals with the special world of parents of children with special needs. Yael Gross Englander, one of the playwrights, shared her thoughts and impressions about the play on her Facebook page. The audience enters the small theater and their attention is drawn to the sight of three stately wheelchairs sitting in a row on the stage, brightly lit but silent. The three represent the idea that all of us deal with disability in some way, all of us struggle with some sort of limitations. The dramatic staging was made possible with the cooperation of Yad Sarah. "From the moment I telephoned Yad Sarah and explained about the play until we wheeled the wheelchairs back through the door of Yad Sarah's Zamenhof branch in Tel Aviv, we felt a close connection with the organization. We felt they recognized the underlying themes of the play, that the play was a call for compassion, for understanding, for an acknowledgment of the experiences of the many parents raising children with special needs with love and devotion." So thank-you, Yad Sarah. May you continue in your journey to improve the lives of so many families.
