Arizona Jewish Theatre Company
The Arizona Jewish Theatre Company is a member of the Association for Jewish Theatre, Phoenix Community Alliance, Alliance for Audience and Arizona Citizens for the Arts. It was a recipient of the 1991 Belle Latchman Community Service Award. In 1994, the Company received the B'nai B'rith Womens Humanitarian Award for the work it does in bridging gaps of multi-cultural understanding, through the subject matter of its plays as well as the diversity of its casts, crews, and audiences. In 2000, the Company again received the Belle Latchman Community Service Award, this time for its Dear Esther school project, which brought in over 1500 school children to see this moving Holocaust remembrance. The Company has also received numerous AriZoni nominations and awards, and the producing Director, Janet Arnold, was named creative artist of the year as part of the YWCA Tribute to women 2001. This award is given to women in the community who have helped to empower women and to eliminate racism.
