“You won’t succeed on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews”goes the song in the musical Spamalot. This month the same applies in Sydney.
The harbour city has more Jewish flavours than a buffet at a Bar Mitzvah - hosting Fiddler on the Roof, Bad Jews, Disgraced and My Name is Asher Lev.
The (latter) play based on Chaim Potok’s novel, takes us into the world of Hasidic Judaism.
