Israel’s national theatre, Habima, has staged a play, Behind the Gate, based on a short story by Haim Nahman Bialik, in Hebrew and Russian.

Before the show the theatre company held a well-attended question and  answer session with Habima’s artistic director Moshe Kaptan, Genesis Philanthropy Group’s Dorit Golender and the two leads – actors Inna Bakelman and Alaa Daka.

The discussion focused on the relevance of Behind the Gate to today,  and the co-operation between Habima and Genesis Philanthropy Group. Together they aim to introduce Russian-speaking audiences to Habima  and to highlight Habima’s cultural roots, inextricably linked with the history of Russian Jews.
