Beit Zvi School for the Performing Arts

Beit Zvi School for the Performing Arts (Hebrew: בית צבי‎‎) is an acting school located in Ramat Gan, Israel established in 1950.[1]


Beit Zvi is the country's first theater school not affiliated with an established theater.[2] It was founded by Haim Gamzo.[1] Former director Gary Bilu established a theater for Beit Zvi graduates and mounted plays not put on by the repertory theaters.[1]

Beit Zvi offers a three-year program with an emphasis on acting in real productions.[1][2] Micah Lewensohn, appointed head of the school in 2009, is the former director of the Israel Festival.[1] Lewensohn plans to institute a BA degree and a program in television studies.[1]
