Dudaim, a ballet on the biblical story of Rachel and Leah, will be performed for women only at the Katamon Theater in Jerusalem this week to raise funds for the Lev LaLev Orphanage in Netanya. Sara Hadassa Port, who choreographed the production, was a professional ballet dancer for the Colorado Ballet and California Ballet, and trained at the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia, among others, before becoming religious recently. "I have found that ballet is an incredible outlet for religious girls and I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to share my greatest love with such eager students," said Port She will be accompanied by three students and a live singer in the ballet, which will include the "Dying Swan," originally danced by Anna Pavlova in Russia. The show will take place on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at (054) 235-6276 or (050) 214-7790.
