Presented by YILove Jewish, please join us for this series of Jewish themed play readings which the Miami Beach JCC offers during the year. Go Down Moses by Dana Leslie Goldstein play reading will be performed by local stage actor Avi Hoffman and a cast on Tuesday, February 7, 7:30 pm.

SYNOPSIS: It’s 1985. Ethics professor Philip Hoffman and newly appointed Dean of Students Albert Becker already have a long history. They marched side by side for civil rights, registered voters together during freedom summer, and have maintained a friendship that crosses the boundaries of race, religion and country of birth. Now they work at a small, liberal university, where part of the job is training a new crop of activists. When a star student from the South Bronx – Angela Carter - crosses the administration and invites a controversial speaker to campus, free speech becomes a battle cry, and still festering inequities become impossible to Ignore. GO DOWN, MOSES is a 2021 Jewish Plays Project Finalist in their Regional and National Contests, as well as a semi-finalist for both the Ashland New Plays Festival and the Bay Area Playwrights Festival.
