The death of a loved one brings out deep feelings in the survivors. In the case of Daphna Feygenbaum, her strongest feeling is fear: Fear that her cousin Liam and his shiksa girlfriend are going to get her grandfather's Chai necklace. That necklace should be hers — she's a good Jew, with an Israeli boyfriend and everything. Liam assures her that he's not going home empty-handed without a fight. Joshua Harmon's Bad Jews is a biting satire about what it means to be a Jewish American. The New Jewish Theatre presents Bad Jews at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday (December 3 through 20) at the Jewish Community Center's Wool Studio Theatre (2 Millstone Campus Drive; 314-442-3283 or www.newjewishtheatre.org). Tickets are $39.50 to $43.50.
