The latest installment of Bold Conversations, “Breaking the Bonds of Addiction” will open your mind and expand your awareness through a moving musical performance called “Freedom Song.” The cast comprises addicts in recovery who are actively facing their demons every day. Their performance, interweaving a Passover seder with personal stories, will captivate you, making you laugh, cry, and learn.

All of this will lead up to a lively Q&A with Beit T’Shuvah’s Rabbi Joseph Shamash, “Freedom Song” director Michael Kamenir, and some of the cast members in conversation with Sarah Abramson, Ph.D., senior vice president of strategy and impact at CJP. Or, attendees can choose to participate in a post-performance, small-group discussion with members of the cast. End the evening by having dessert with the cast of “Freedom Song” and get to know them better.

For more information or to request special accommodations, please email Carissa or call 617-457-8859.

The Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project (RSIP) is a partnership between CJP and the Ruderman Family Foundation that supports synagogues in creating communities where people of all abilities are valued equally and participate fully.

“Freedom Song” is a transformative musical that shatters the myth of Jews being immune to addiction by interweaving the story of Passover and personal stories of addiction. The cast is made up of addicts in recovery from drugs, alcohol, gambling, and other destructive behaviors. Through songs, dance, tears, laughter, and post-show discussion with the cast, “Freedom Song” will open your eyes to the real-life struggle against the “bondage of self” that we all fight every day.
