Jews, God, and History Trailer

Our religions date back to the Bronze Age—before science taught us that the reality of the universe doesn’t match the story told by the Bible. Yet we still practice the religions of our ancestors. We pray. We perform rituals.

How and why do we live with our traditions in the modern age?

Jews, God, and History (Not Necessarily in That Order) is about Jews but it’s not only about Jews. The show explores the big questions asked by all people: about God and humanity, faith and reason, tribe and society.

As the show provokes people to think, it also gets them to laugh, employing a slew of comedic forms: stand-up, sketch, character, impressions, and just plain jokes. Discourse, rant, and memoir fill out the show’s ample dramatic material.

Venturing into rarely explored territory, Jews, God, and History pulls no punches, challenging viewers to question their assumptions about issues like God, the Holocaust, and the tension between tribal loyalties and assimilation into a majority culture.

Jews, God, and History is reverent and irreverent, epic and intimate, comforting and maddening.

Jews, God, and History is unlike any show you’ve seen before.
