What is Jewish Crossroads?
It's an award-winning program that has successfully impacted thousands of adults and teens throughout the USA, Canada, England and Israel since 1993, guiding them to explore and discover the beauty of Judaism. Shlomo Horwitz, Crossroads' founder, has personally delivered each of the presentations in a variety of venues including synagogues, college campuses, school assemblies, overnight camps and Shabbatonim.
The premise of Crossroads is really quite simple: People don't like to be lectured to. They want to be entertained and educated.
Jewish Crossroads takes authentic Torah wisdom and historical research, and combines them with acting techniques that make the audience feel as if they are part of the action, the history, the events - as they are occurring.
Essentially, each session is a 'you-are-there' interactive one-man play. The audience walks out having learned Torah concepts in a way they may never forget! See the 90-second video below:
