The Arts and Judaism have been intrinsically linked since the beginning of time. There are an overwhelming number of Jews creating or performing in the areas of music, visual arts, creative writing, dance and theater. And if they’re not performing, they are attending and supporting! Culture has always been one of the pillars of Judaism that helps to weave together the colorful tapestry of Jewish life and bring communities together.
