I am a student at Concord Carlisle High School in Massachusetts, and in December of last year, my school put on a production of musical "Falsettos" which, if you are unfamiliar with the play, is about a Jewish family in New York experiencing troubles because of sexuality. There is a woman my town who believes that this play "
Here is my response:
I wrote the letter. Jews are referred to in the bible as a nation of priests & holy people. we are told" be holy because i your God am holy." this " play" is pure smut & antithetical to bi blical values for which jews died in inquisitions holocaust etc. frankly i believe that devout moslem s & christians both of whom base major parts of their religions on our values & our torah would feel equally offended if their religion where debased in the play. i assume if this exact play would be about you , your parents , grandparents siblings, etc. & whatever religious or moral values you 'subscribe' to you or they [certainly your grandparents] would be outraged. nice of you to write ,but saying im sorry as if that is a magic wand which somehow erases the insult & the pain... it does not ,at all. furthermore to add insult to injury ,you act as judge & rule that unless we stand with the petition & mass resistance [we proudly do!] there's nothing else offensive about this , debased , debauched smut.this attitude reflects your obvious lack of elemental values which your own antecedents going back millennia adhered to.its quite immature& frankly very self centered in not being able to understand another group's pain or values. how sad.
