Amy Saidman is known best for her victories at Purim festivals far and wide, claiming the coveted goldfish-in-a-bag prize many times. Her favorite Hebrew school song is Wherever you go, there’s always someone Jewish and believes JDate.com is a scam. When not watching Fiddler on the Roof, she spends her time as Artistic Executive Director of Story District, which is how she weaseled into this show.
Valentina Stackl told her first story at age 6 on a train platform, to everyone waiting on a train. To her parents' chagrin, she was hooked. Currently, Valentina works at an international human rights and environmental justice organization where she does Human Rights Storytelling. Valentina has performed for SpeakeasyDC, she’s a Storyleague Tournament winner, and she recently rocked the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage.
David Wolkin Communication guy at Avodah, educator, cat whisperer, walking coincidence magnet, two degrees from everyone you know.
Richard Miron A literal wandering Jew originally from London with a career in foreign affairs, seeking to share his infectious travel bug with his wife and two young daughters.
Dana Stroul Hummus-eating, tea-drinking Middle East policy nerd, snarky only when appropriate.
Art Delibert A wandering Jew, a wondering Jew. A lawyer on K Street but prefers to reside at the intersection of mythology, psychology, and religion.
A curvaceous and vivacious, New York raised Jew that consults with nonprofit justice organizations by trade and is ridiculously happy to be married to Tonya and mom to Evie, the invincible toddler.
