Brodsky Library, PJ Library partner for ‘story walk’ series

Saul Brodsky Jewish Community Library and PJ Library are working together to develop a Jewish Story Festival for the community, launching in May, intersecting with the St. Louis Storytelling Festival. This first event on May 4 will then kick-off a yearlong series of “story walks” through the St. Louis Jewish community utilizing various modalities of telling stories about our community, our families and our own stories. The partnership will be offering local families four to five opportunities to engage with others throughout the next 18 months. Programs will be collaborative with various organizations partnering with a quest, such as religious schools, preschools, etc.

For the first event in the series, join The Bible Players for an interactive Torah Comedy Show at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 4. The Bible Players have been “improv-ing Jewish lives, performing in 26 states for thousands of adults and children alike. Andrew Davies is a master improviser who will engage the whole family. Aaron Friedman is a stand-up comedian who was voted “The Funniest Jew in New York!” 

 Bring a picnic dinner and come enjoy the show at the To Have Fun Pavilion in the Jewish Community Center’s Staenberg Campus North Parking Lot. The ice cream truck will arrive at 6:30 p.m. to cap off the event. RSVP online at For more information, contact Jennifer Baer Lotsoff at [email protected] or 314-442-3867.
