TRYmester: Jewish Fertility Journeys Out Loud

Community-Wide Performances

Saturday, March 3 – Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Join us for a tapestry of song, dance, and monologue highlighting the fertility challenges of people in the New York Jewish community. Artistically developed by Uprooted and the In[heir]itance Project, with support from UJA-Federation of New York, and drawing on true stories shared by community members in one-on-one discussions and open salons, TRYmester explores the many twists and turns that can occur on the journey toward family. Come increase awareness and sensitivity toward this topic by experiencing the cycles of emotions that arise while facing fertility challenges in the Jewish community. And hear about new community-based supports.

Each performance is approximately an hour long.

Tickets are $18
