The Braid

The Braid, in partnership with LUNAR Collective, created a new original show that places the voices and experiences of Asian Jews on center stage. The Braid creative team, which consists of Asian Jews, invited Asian Jewish writers and community members to submit stories about their experiences at the crossroads of cultures, and to explore what it means to be Asian and Jewish in our contemporary world, holding writers’ workshops (in person in Los Angeles, in person in New York City, live on Zoom) to support the writing process and encourage community members to submit their stories. This grant is creating opportunities for Asian Jews to tell their stories, to find a strong Asian Jewish community, and to see the arts as a positive tool for reflecting their identities.
