Membership Drive

Due to the volume of requests to extend our membership drive we have decided to keep the discounted rates going through the end of December 2013. So if you have not yet paid your membership now is the time to do so. Other than our dues going up in 2014 here are a few reasons why you should join the AJT family. 



   AJT members are informed of current trends in Jewish theatre through its global network promoting and initiating projects worldwide


   Website maintained exclusively for member’s information and links

   The AJT ListServ allows members to communicate what is happening in the world of Jewish theatre, performance, and culture

    Member theatres and theatre artists gain recognition 

   AJT annual international conference -- portions open to public

   Solo performers and playwright members showcase their works at annual international conference

   Ongoing networking with members and theatres throughout the world and matching AJT theatres with playwrights and performers for public readings, workshops, development and public performances

   Events and news are broadcast to all members

   Emerging and young artists are supported 

   Israeli theatre is sought

Don't forget one of the most valuable reasons to be a member is to get discounts to the AJT Conference, November 9-12, 2014 in Washington, D.C. sponsored with Theater J.  SO RENEW NOW TO GET THE 2014 CONFERENCE DISCOUNT, WHILE PAYING THE CURRENT LOW MEMBERSHIP FEE!
