The Concept

The concept for the creation of the Hebrew Audio Theater was born from a need: the need to meet with The great figures in the Bible. Especially with ’the Seven Shepherds’: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Aaron, Moses and David. 

These Biblical seven characters are some of the great characters in the Bible. They known as “shepherds” in the consciousness of the Israeli nation. The reason for this is that each one of them has built a different spiritual aspect in the nation and among humanity and added an additional layer to the spiritual traits of those born after them. And they influence human culture till today.

However, is it at all possible to “meet” with these superb characters – people who during their lives attained prophetic revelation, to the Holy Spirit, and for the Almighty to converse with them?

The Hebrew Audio Theater is trying to deal with this problem in its very special way:

  1. The series advances in the early stages of the development of the Biblical character, in stages in which the unique personality is formed. In these stages it is possible for us, who are the distant ones, to identify emotionally with the various situations with which the character has to deal.
  1. The acquaintance with the character and writing the plot are executed following a thorough study and with faithfulness to the Sages’ Midrashic interpretations of the Bible and the commentaries that subsequently evolved. This exegesis developed over the course of more than a thousand years and created a unique entity.
  1. Dramatic language is not an alien element in traditional Judaism. The form of the theatrical story which is essentially “character and plot” is to be found hidden among the recesses of its rationality. Nevertheless, the main effort has been invested in an effort to understand the Biblical verses according to tradition, a tradition that began with Mount Sinai and was transmitted over the generations.

The theater

“The Audio Theater” is also called “The Theater of the Imagination.” Precisely in this artistic form – “the radio play” in its previous incarnation – precisely in it there is an artistic advantage.

“The performance of the actor in front of the microphone” has a potential even greater than the other theatrical and cinematic forms – to ignite the imagination, the ability to express in speech, vocally, the minutiae of emotion, the transitions of the soul and its conflicts – and it possesses a unique depth. The depth adds aesthetic pleasure . The precise combination of quality acting, high-level sound effects and original music, adds considerably to the enjoyment.

The enjoyment adds clarity to the understanding of the Biblical verses and their interpretation.

The emotional identification which the listener experiences throughout the dramatic action, awakens in him the meeting with the characters of the Seven Shepherds, and other characters in the Bible. In a direct encounter with their exciting lives filled with ancient majesty and spiritual greatness.
