    By Amy Klein

    November 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    When I moved to Israel in 1992, I was a young religious Zionist believing in the Greater Israel. I was disappointed that the Likud's Yizhak Shamir had lost the elections to a man named Yitzhak Rabin.

    November 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Don't be misled by the play's title.
