We Believe In…

  • Fostering innovative expressions of contemporary Jewish identity.
  • Meeting people where they are — online, in person, culturally, and spiritually — with depth and breadth of content to increase accessibility.
  • Expressing the diversity of the Jewish experience.
  • Contextualizing Israel as part of the American Jewish story.
  • Making space for audiences to connect with important contemporary issues.
  • Collaborating with organizations of all backgrounds and beliefs to create more connected and understanding communities.

Our Story

The Jewish Arts Collaborative was formed in 2014 as the result of a merger of two veteran institutions: the Boston Jewish Music Festival and the New Center for Arts and Culture (with support from Combined Jewish Philanthropies, TDC Consultants, and funding from the Boston Foundation Catalyst Fund). Boston-based Jewish cultural leaders had come together to explore new ways to elevate Jewish culture, and thus The Jewish Arts Collaborative was born: a place to explore and engage with Jewish culture through the lenses of Jewish art, music, literature, and other forms of creative expression.

We launched publicly in December 2015 with Boston’s first-ever Jewish public art project: “8 Nights, 8 Windows.” We’ve since been a valued member of the Greater Boston cultural landscape, garnering national attention and distinguished awards, while reaching people in Boston and beyond.
