AGPAF Presents: The Tree of Life

June 9, 2023 - June 12, 2023

Sixty-something widower Ken clings to his proud but fading Jewish congregation in the tiny town of Wiconee, Iowa; Colombian grad student Marianela, visiting to research her dissertation, represents a budding community of Latin Americans who are rediscovering their Jewish roots. As Mari’s true intentions are revealed, the synagogue’s antique Torah scroll becomes a critical character in the bittersweet (and occasionally comic) drama that unfolds. Inspired by a true-life events at the Synagogue of B’nai Jacob Congregation in Ottumwa, Iowa.
