Since 2007, the National Jewish Theater Foundation – National Jewish Theater (NJTF) has presented theatrical works that celebrate the richness of Jewish heritage and culture. Under the leadership of its founder and President, Arnold Mittelman, the NJFT promotes the appreciation and preservation of Jewish musical and dramatic theatrical artists. As one of the foremost performing arts organization to focus exclusively on Jewish theater, NJTF is committed to educating the public on Jewish content and themes. NJTF productions are presented to diverse audiences across America and throughout the world.

Recent productions have included the NYC critically-acclaimed production of The Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen produced live and on film, Words By Ira Gershwin, by Joseph Vass, and Rothschilds & Sons, music and lyrics by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick with book by Sherman Yellen.

Celebrating Jewish history and artistry inspired the leaders of NJTF to launch the Holocaust Theater International Initiative that examines through research, education, and production how one of the greatest catastrophes in Jewish and World history has been made more understandable through the insights, creativity, and courage of Jewish theater artists and others of differing backgrounds.
