Costumes not including leather sandals are provided by our costume team. As soon as the prayer concludes at the well, the characters get in place.
The Rabbi is a very specific role which requires memorizing a script and a song. The Rabbi remains in the temple area for the entire performance and greets the visitors after they sign the census.
