Since its inception, The Jewish Ensemble Theatre has used its stage to explore and confront issues of humanity. As a theatre of social conscience, we have stood--and will always stand--for inclusion, fairness, justice, and most importantly, equality.


Bigotry, racism, intolerance, discrimination and prejudice in society is intolerable, which is why JET has worked for 31 years to educate our youth and engage our audiences in these vital issues. JET will continue to honor its guiding principles in this regard.
