Thank you for joining us for
Hop-A-LA Cabaret!

The Secret Ingredient - Sonia (Shamai & Frati)

Just over a month ago we held our very first comedy song event - Hop-A-La Cabaret. We had the most amazing cast performing a variety of songs, from musical theatre, to pop, to originals.


First video we want to share is of our wonderful MC, Thomasin Lockwood . Thomasin is not only an incredible performer, she is also a hilarious comedian and a good friend of ours!


One of the songs Thomasin sang is an original song by the amazing duo Shamai and Frati (and yes that is our Shachar Shamai!). ‘The Secret Ingredient’ is a song from their new phenomenal musical ‘Sonia’! For those in Israel, keep an eye out as Sonia will be in theatres next autumn! 
Thank you Thomasin for this beautiful rendition! 

“You’ve Got a Friend” in solidarity with BLM

“You’ve Got a Friend” in solidarity with BLM

Be a Friend, Donate today.!/DonationDetails Visit JCORE's website - As the world continues to struggle with the new reality presented by COVID-19, it is crucial that action for racial justice and support for Black Lives Matter is sustained. In the almost 8 months since George Floyd was killed last spring we have continued to see our world drastically shift and try to adapt to an ever changing reality, but racism and violence continue to plague us. We wish to actively continue the long tradition of Jewish people standing in solidarity with communities of colour in their struggle to end racial discrimination, as taught by Jewish leaders such as Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and others. Since 1976, JCORE the Jewish Council for Racial Equality has worked both inside and outside the Jewish community to provide a Jewish voice on Race and Asylum issues. JCORE works to engage the Jewish community in social action across wider society, focussing on race equality and justice for refugees and asylum seekers. JCORE’s work draws on Jewish refugee experience, teaching and tradition of Jewish social activism. The JEWish Cabaret is an egalitarian theatre collaborative dedicated to challenging the perceptions of the general public on what it means to be Jewish by creating innovative theatrical productions inspired by our dialogue with our own Jewish identity. We aim to provide quality entertainment and artistry drawing from the Jewish traditions, while also challenging them through humour, satire, and pride. We provide a platform that incubates the talents of young artists - of Jewish heritage as well as of other backgrounds - who are interested in intersectional dialogue.
