The Birthright Alumni Community has announced that it will be offering tickets to “Soul Doctor” to past participants of its program. Over 5,000 Birthright alumni will be able to attend the biographical musical of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach for free. Michael Steinhardt, co-founder of Birthright, is underwriting the new initiative, that also includes talkbacks of the show and exclusive receptions.
Ms. Sugar continued, “Birthright Israel alumni celebrate Shabbat together, study Hebrew together, travel to Poland and Prague together, and discuss critical issues facing modern Israel together,” said Executive Director of The Alumni Community Rebecca Sugar in a statement. “They meet with Wall Street executives and deliver food packages to the elderly for the holidays… The gift of tickets to Soul Doctor is the gift of connection to our community and its cultural history.”
“We are thrilled that because of his support, thousands of students and young adults will be able to experience one of the most uplifting and joyous shows ever on Broadway,” added Soul Doctor producer Jeremy Chess in the statement.
