Tribe 12 is excited to partner with Amanda Eve Thum of The Maggid (themaggid.com) to host our very own Jewish version of The Moth. For those who don’t know, a story slam is an event where people come together to tell true stories told live, in front of an audience of their peers. In Jewish culture, a maggid is a skilled narrator of Torah and stories.
Let’s gather, get comfy, maybe grab a drink, as Amanda leads us in a night of opening storytelling. Anyone with a short story (five-minutes max) to share on the night’s theme will then have a chance to be the Maggid. Use your voice! Speak. Come tell a story- whether it’s funny, heartwarming, empowering or just plain weird- or come sit back and enjoy the show!
The theme for the night is Beshert- crazy coincidences! Spots are limited (even to just be in the audience), so reserve yours now.
