What is Mitzvah or Shandah?

Play this hilarious conversational Jewish card game that sparks dialogue and friendly debate with anyone and will have you saying "that's a mitzvah" and "that's a shandah" even after you stop playing. It already sold-out once and is now a fun interactive live event hosted by the creator, Danielle Brody. 

The show has been performed at Caveat, Stand Up NY, JCC Manhattan, and the Jewish Community Project. It has received press from The Forward and Time Out NY.

Brody launched the game in September 2022 after being named a NY Jewish Week "36 to Watch" that summer and crowdsourcing ideas from her community.
