Invite Habimh to Stage Pagaent at World’s Fair

Download PDF for this date

A biblical pagaent under the direction of a former member of the Habimah, Hebrew troupe, Benjamin Zemach, will be a part of the Chicago Centennial World’s Fair in 1933. The committee in charge of preparing plants for the fair has requested Mr. Zemach to stage the pagaent.

The Jewish Historical Society of Illinos has assumed charge of Jewish exhibitions at the fair. Exhibits dealing with the role of the Jewish citizens in the development of Chicago are a part of the plan.
