Since our launch in August so much has happened on 3200 Stories.
We’ve added new authors…Greg Zeman, Josie AG Shapiro, Eric Orner, Jonathan Harris, Laura Sachs, Batshir Torchio, David Shlachter to name a few. We’ve made new friends…Aaron Davidman, Negin Farsad, Boots Riley, Mitchell Rosenthal, Isabel Allende, David Kelley, and Angelique Kidjo and so many more.
We are diving into new themes too.
Check out Glimpses of Israel. Israel is at the heart of many of our conversations. In this theme we offer a peek…we’d love to hear yours.
We are also examining Tradition. Things we do and want to keep doing because they hold meaning to us. Practices new and old. Invented or passed along. What's on your Seder plate? How do you make your coffee in the morning? How do you spend New Years day? And don't miss our remix of the musical theater classic “Tradition” to honor 50 years of Fiddler on the Roof.
Passover is upon us and it’s time to take a look Backstage. Meet (or meet again), Juan Amador, Tommy Shepherd, Candice Wicks and Dan Wolf. Together with Professor Ari Y. Kelman they developed this exciting performance that remixes the passover narrative. It’s beautifully produced, ambitious and fun.
Even with all of that, we have plenty of space for your stories…and we are happy to help you find the best way to share them.
Thank you for all our support as we’ve grown.
All our very best all the time,

'Throughout my career I have explored relationships and the nature of the human condition through symbols and metaphors. The biblical Book of Esther addresses the themes of sacrifice and female empowerment, two subjects that particularly intrigue me. It encourages women to believe in their own strength even in a...

“There are still many Vashtis today, women who are punished because they say no....who are stuck in abusive relationships. It is imperative that we learn from the Megilla and work to change the culture we live in. Support friends who are survivors of rape and domestic... Read more
What is a catapult? “A ballistic device used to launch a projectile without the use of explosives.” Thanks to the San Francisco film producer and philanthropist Lisa Kleiner Chanoff, it’s also a way to launch great film projects. Since forming the Catapult Film Fund in 2010,... Read more
