Behold Her

What is true “Jewish beauty”? Is it Hedy Lamarr’s perfect face? Queen Esther’s diplomacy? Or just having straight hair for a Bat Mitzvah? BEHOLD HER convenes a delegation of memorable Jewish women, real and imagined, historic and contemporary, to explore a question that began with Eve and persists today through song, story and theatre — beneath the harsh lights of a legendary discount store dressing room, no less. Six thousand years of shifting images and definitions, reflected to infinity in a room with no easy answers — that’s our kind of beauty.
