Each fall, our Celebration of Jewish Arts and Culture is designed to provide exciting, thought-provoking programming that celebrates the creativity, spirituality and beauty at the heart of Judaism. It is both a vehicle to teach those who are not Jewish in an accessible and non-threatening way about Jewish culture, history and thought as well as a vehicle to remind the Jewish community that there are many interesting and inspiring ways to connect to their heritage.
Each year, our celebration contains a visual arts, dance, theatre, film and lecture component. We also build a sukkah with neighborhood children and present what is perhaps the only multi-cultural Kristallnacht commemoration in the country.
The goal of our Celebration is to promote a greater understanding of and appreciation for Jewish culture in both the Jewish and greater community, and to explore the relationship between religion/spirituality and the arts. People of all faiths and cultures have come and enjoyed and learned from our Celebration each year.
