The Mitzvah Project is a Holocaust-themed theatrical-educational program presented on the Zoom platform. Comprised of a short play, lecture and talkback, The Mitzvah Project engages several critical socio-historical questions: “Who decides the meaning of culture, race and ethnicity?” “How is one’s identity determined? "Why do we demonize ‘the other?’”
“As a classically trained actor and the proud son of an Auschwitz survivor, my obligation is to make sure that, with my mother’s generation dying out, the world does not forget and young people will be able learn these critical lessons of history.” — Roger Grunwald, The Mitzvah Project’s creator and performer.
