Romantic Play Based on Lehi Jewish Underground


The Lehi Museum in Tel Aviv held a performance of Love Between the Lines, a play based on letters written between Avraham "Yair" Stern, the commander of the Lehi and his wife Roni Stern. Lehi is an acronym for Lohamei Herut Yisrael, or Fighters for the Freedom of Israel and fought against the British in the 1940s. The play was performed Sunday evening, the night of Tu B'Av, a Jewish holiday associated with finding a soulmate. 

According to press information, the play depicts "moving stories between man and woman, between a warrior, friend and great love of Israel, the land, hopes and dreams of a free country."
