Miriam Camerini

Miriam Camerini is a theatre director, writer, singer and actress; she believes interpretation is a key word to describe her work and artistic persona, because it bridges between the way we read texts and the way we put them on stage, allowing for an encounter between theatre and Jewish traditional study. She’s the founder and artistic director of Benhashmashot, Jewish Theatre in Milan, with which she tours all over Italy, Europe and the world. Miriam holds a BA in Linguistics and Literature from the State University of Milan and attended an MA program in Theatre Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2009-10.

Miriam studied at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem and is now a rabbinical student at Beit Midrash Har'El, one of the first orthodox institutions to ordain women rabbis. Miriam writes regularly for Italian magazines and papers and published a book about food and religion, Ricette e Precetti (Giuntina, Firenze 2019), which has recently been published in German by Hentrich&Hentrich with the title Rezepte und Gebote (and a foreword by Tom Franz).
