As anyone who’s visited Israel can testify, Hebrew is a language of gestures: the shrug of derision (aimed at American tourists); the dismissive wave (aimed at stupid Knesset members); the spasmodically waving index finger (aimed at every conversational partner). So expect a hyperkinetic performance from Hanoch Rosenn, Israel’s most celebrated comic mime. At 7 p.m. at the Israeli Embassy, 3514 International Dr. NW. $12. For reservations call (202) 857-6572.
