Weinberg vs Weisberg

We are moving to Israel not Winnipeg

Dear friends, There seems to be a little confusion following a couple of articles in the CJN lately leading many to think that I am moving to take a position as the new Artistic Director of the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre. The new Artistic Director is Ari Weinberg not Ari Weisberg. What a difference one letter can make. But we are moving too.

Yehudit and I love Canada. Yehudit was born here and we made our home here. But we have both always felt that we had to get back to Israel, the country I was born in and the homeland of all Jews. And now our dream is coming true.

This exciting event for us has some sad sides to it too. I will no longer be able to run TEATRON Toronto Jewish Theatre. We will also be moving away from friends and family including the TEATRON family. Many of you have asked me, upon learning of our plans, about the future of our theatre stating that they would miss it and its offerings. I was touched by this and embarked on a way to continue the theatre. There is a new team in the offing. Please stay tuned, I will update you as soon as things are finalized.
Sincerely,

Ari Weisberg, Artistic Director
TEATRON Theatre
