Yael Valier is creative director of Jerusalem based ‘Theater and Theology’.  She tells Eve how her personal search for explanations of why bad things happen to good people led her down this path of intellectual, spiritual and artistic creativity and also ultimately prepared her in some way for the recent death of her son.  Why are English speaking Orthodox Jews attending plays with originally Christian themes? Are theaters the place to discuss God?

A thought provoking, even pain-full talk with a talented and deeply devoted Jew.

Yael has now gone international.
