Sunday Symposium - Fires in the Mirror
Hear from experts on topics related to each production. Theater J invites specialists in their fields to delve deeper into the significance of a play’s history, cultural context, or theme.
For Fires in the Mirror, we will delve deeper into the history and context of the Crown Heights Riots and how they changed the landscape of the neighborhoods where they occurred.

Our Sunday Symposium will be moderated by Sonya Weisburd, the EDCJCC’s Director of the Center for Social Responsibility.

We are honored to welcome Associate Professor Terrence L. Johnson and Professor, Center for Jewish Civilization Jacques D. Berlinerblau, both from Georgetown University.

Terrence L. Johnson is Associate Professor of Religion and Politics in the Department of Government, affiliate faculty member of the Department of African American Studies, and senior faculty fellow at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs.

Jacques Berlinerblau is currently the Rabbi Harold White Professor of Jewish Civilization at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.

We will be selling copies of their recently published books during the run of our play.
