Fourteen plays, each 15 to 30 minutes long, explore topics such as holidays, Bible, Jewish folktales, Midrash, Talmud, tzedakah, and Israel.

Longer scripts with more characters and multiple scenes make these plays particularly well suited to more sophisticated stage productions.

Includes black line masters for 14 individual scripts, director's notes, cast lists, and detailed production notes, including suggestions for adapting the plays for large or small groups.

Accompanying CD-ROM, with Microsoft Word text files for both PC and Macintosh computers, allows for easy customization.
