SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 19Teibele and Her Demon will take the stage at the Khan Theater today at 8:30 p.m. Adapted by Roni Sinai to the Israeli stage, the Isaac Bashevis Singer classic was first staged by the author himself and Eve Friedman in 1979, with Laura Esterman playing Teibele and F. Murray Abraham as the alleged demon. In the Hebrew production, Vitali Friedland takes on the role of the demon and Natalie Eliezerov that of Teibele.

Wildflower Seeds Project – Are you starting the new Jewish year by planting something new in your garden? Why not consider a wild flower or two? The aim of the Wildflower Seeds Project is to introduce rare and endangered wildflowers into Jerusalem’s gardens. Many of these plants are water saving; they do not need to be watered beyond the winter rains and can grow heartily in shade, which is a characteristic of many backyard gardens in urban Jerusalem. For NIS 30 you would get hundreds of seeds of Campanula peregrine. NIS 20 will get you the seeds of Verbascum agrimoniifolium. To learn more: (02) 679-4012 or www.jbgculture.com/homepage

Yehoshua (2021) [Tuesday September 21 at 8:45 p.m. with English subtitles] and Grossman (2021) about writer David Grossman (Wednesday September 22 at 8:30 p.m. Hebrew only).
