"HIDDEN: The Secret Jews of Spain"is a new musical about a family in 18th-century Spain that struggles to secretly keep its Jewish faith alive, while outwardly pretending to be Christian amidst the ever-watching eyes of the Inquisition.

The musical is an adaptation of the treasured historical novel "The Family Aguilar" by Rabbi Marcus Lehmann.

We have been rehearsing since May, and the show will go on stage, please G-d, in Jerusalem in November 2018.

Who are we?

We are "The Women's Performance Community of Jerusalem" in partnership with the OU Israel Center, and we are passionate about creating educational theater that allows women and girls to express themselves in a fun and safe environment.

Our writers/composers, Sharon Katz & Avital Macales, devoted the past year to creating an unforgettable show, filled with drama and dance, music and mystery, heartbreak and hope, laughter and, ultimately, life. We cannot wait to perform for you and restore the cherished memory of Spain's hidden Jews, one of the most fascinating chapters of Jewish history.
