Truly Israeli

Arabic Theater at Beit Hagefen

Elcarmeh Theater at Beit Hagefen Jewish Arab Cultural Center is the oldest professional Arabic theater in Israel and the only Arabic theater for children. They have a wide repertoire of plays both major productions in house and small productions that they take on the road.

Elcarmeh has a deep commitment to community and takes its plays to the periphery where there are no other cultural events for children and to low income neighborhoods where the children have no access to such plays. They travel all over the country to reach as many needy children as possible. They are seeking to purchase and outfit a special truck that would enable them to perform in a wider variety of spaces that are not possible now.
