New Play Explores “Kosher Cell Phones”

In the new play “Press #93 for Kosher Jewish Girls in Krakow” by Tuvia Tenenbom, the playwright explores the comedic possibilities sexuality, Jewish Orthodoxy and technology. 

The play is about two ultra-Orthodox Yeshiva students in Israel who create a “kosher cell phone”
that helps observant Jewish men avoid the temptations of the fairer sex.  The phone works by helping its users avoid pornographic content on the Internet and it warns them when they are about to come into the presence of a woman.

The play recently opened at the Kraine Theater on 85. E. Fourth Street and runs until April 18th.  Tickets can be purchased here.
