Mandate

The mission of The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre is:

-To dramatize the Jewish experience.
Yiddish Theatre reflects the whole panorama of Jewish life, the Yiddish language and literature, the traditions and turbulent history, the philosophy and folk wisdom and the humour, the poetry and the music.

-To sustain Yiddish language and culture in Canada and around the world.
The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre is a major centre for the development and promotion of the Yiddish legacy as a living, vibrant culture wherever Yiddish was once spoken and is spoken.

-To foster intercultural understanding through the arts.
Across Quebec and Canada and abroad, The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre is seen as a cultural ambassador for the Jewish community and as a proud example of this country's openness to diversity.
