Experience the 8th annual night of funny, poignant, powerful, and peculiar autobiographical stories about all things Jewish, not-so-Jewish, and wanna-be Jewish. Storytellers include:

Suzanne Hecker is a part-time IT Project Manager and full-time Jewish mother to two teenage sons. She is very excited for her third storytelling performance.

Bonnie Rich is a filmmaker producing a light-hearted documentary in which she tries to persuade her millennial daughters that Judaism is worth keeping in the family.

Leah Harris is a mother, writer, and storyteller whose 2016 Capital Fringe solo show “Aliens, Nazis, and Angels” was named among “Best of the Fringe” by DC Metro Theater Arts.

Cody Pomeranz is a speechwriter from Cincinnati. He spends his free time doing stand-up comedy and cheering on—or crying over—his beloved Cincinnati Bengals. The youngest of six children, he is afraid of Furbies and, when scared, tells himself his name is Jason Bourne.

Jason Kuller is a practicing lawyer, former stand-up comedian, and currently the CEO of local restaurant favorites Proof, Estadio, Doi Moi, and 2 birds 1 stone.

Rabbi Aaron Potek is the Community Rabbi at Gather the Jews. He grew up in Saint Louis Park, MN and graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Industrial and Operations Engineering. After receiving ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, he served as the campus rabbi at Northwestern University’s Hillel.

Rachel Louise Snyder is the author of Fugitive Denim and What We’ve Lost is Nothing. She has written for The New Yorker and “This American Life.”

Hosted by Amy SaidmanStory District’s artistic executive director.
