Featured Artist: Ezra Berkley Nepon
Ezra is a West Philadelphia writer, performer, and organizer who received the Leeway Foundation Art and Change grant in 2007 to attend a month-long Yiddish program in Vilnius, Lithuania in research for their 2009 play "Between Two Worlds: Who Loved You Before You Were Mine" which used themes from The Dybbuk to think about relationships between queer generations in the wake of the AIDS epidemic. Nepon is the author of recent book Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue: A History of New Jewish Agenda and is currently pursuing an M.A. at Goddard College, writing a thesis about New Yiddish Theater-maker Jenny Romaine and Radical faerie theater-troupe The Eggplant Faerie Players.
