A Branch For Jerusalem

A Branch for Jerusalem is the story of a journey when the way was blocked and time had stopped. This is a play about the personalities, dreams, conflicts and loves of a family, set against a background that closed in on them during the Holocaust.  This is also a play about silence and disappearance, but even more pronounced, it is also about that spark in the human spirit which believes silence and disappearance are greater enemies than death.  The characters in the play are fictional, but the historical context is true.
