“Another brilliant program, and one which I’ve had the consummate pleasure of seeing three times, is the San Diego REP’s offering of “Women of Valor.” This amazing tribute to our local women is always such a powerful and beautiful testament to how many incredible women live and operate among us, and how ignorant we are of what they do behind the scenes.” – L’Chaim San Diego Magazine, 2015
“The filled house was rapt during each of the “stories.” Accompanying photos brought the audience into the lives of these women and allowed us to experience, first hand, their families, homes and cherished memories. The tone of the evening was decidedly joyous and uplifting…These “Women of Valor” were beautifully, dynamically, and authentically portrayed .” – Eva Trieger, San Diego Jewish World, 2012
“It is programs like Women of Valor, created by local talent… original plays, In Every Generation by Ali Viterbi… that give the festival its unique San Diego flavor and display the wealth of creative talent we have within our own community.” – Eileen Wingard, San Diego Jewish World, 2018
