Storytelling is a powerful way to combine the energy of the performer and the contents of the story being told across cultures and religions.

Peninnah Schram, a teacher of speech and drama at Stern College in New York is truly a master of her profession. She has traveled the world for many years, telling stories of Jewish history and religion and sharing her gift with students.

Maha Alusi, a Berlin-based Iranian artist, and Gerard Edery, a guitarist and singer-songwriter from New York, join her onstage to generate a vital and colorful dialogue of Jewish and Arabic storytelling.
