SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Play Theater, a musical theater program that provides classes and performance opportunities for local children, will present Tarzan on Saturday, Feb. 3, at 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 4, at 1:00 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church (559 Park Ave., Scotch Plains). The cast and crew is comprised of 51 local children ages 6-14. Admission is $1 per person, exact change only. Seating will be limited, please arrive early.

Tarzan is adapted from the story “Tarzan and the Apes” by Edgar Rice Borroughs and based on Disney Studios 1999 epic animated musical adventure film. Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan.

Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan's life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory, and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion, as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.

Sinai or Sanctuary?

 

 

And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...
