This NEW series is designed to provide families an opportunity to learn and explore Jewish Culture through the arts, specifically focusing on the contributions that American Jews have made in the United States. Learning and engaging with other members of the community through workshops designed to bring families of different backgrounds together, we will build a fun and creative environment, teach acceptance and understanding, and celebrate and recognize differences, similarities, and contributions American Jews have made to the US.
