30 Years: Strength to Strength Campaign

Please consider joining your friends and neighbors in supporting Theater J and ensuring we move ahead with the spirit, resiliency, and ambition that has been a hallmark of this theater since its inception three decades ago. Donations to this campaign will help the hundreds of individuals – the designers, the actors, the technicians, the staff – weather this storm as we prepare to re-open the theater when it is safe to do so.

Whether you have loved Theater J for one year, for five years, or for all thirty years, now is the perfect time to honor our unique place as a professional theater in the Jewish community. Your support has never been more critical. Today, we ask you to help Theater J continue to move from strength to strength.

Please stand with us during this tumultuous time and help us ensure that one day soon we will welcome you from your home back into ours.
