Online PR News – 09-March-2022 – Toronto Ontario Canada – Whether in comedy (Meatballs) or drama (Law and Order), Harvey Atkin distinguished himself as an actor whose range and professionalism enabled him to perform on a par with some of the most famous actors of our time: Burt Lancaster, Bill Murray, Gene Wilder, Dustin Hoffman, to name a few. This year, Temple Sinai honours his memory by giving five young Jewish performers an opportunity to further their careers, showcase their talents to entertainment industry professionals, and provide us with a great way to celebrate the festival of Purim.

On Wednesday evening, March 16, joining us will be performers Shannon Leibinger, Lily Librach, Ben Page, Ilana Zackon and Seth Zosky. All of them have already distinguished themselves on stage, television or cinema.

In addition, they will be performing together in a Purim play written especially for this occasion by the eminent Canadian author, playwright and screenwriter Emil Sher. Hosting will be Co-artistic director at Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company, David Eisner, with music provided by Temple’s longtime friend, the great Mark Camilleri.
