Why is this site different from all other sites?
We believe in the unique power of arts and culture to build connections. Art, food, literature, music, and more allow us to better understand the life experiences of others as well as our own, and help to build a vibrant and more tolerant future for both our Jewish and Greater Boston communities.
JArts™ creates programs that bring people together — in the Greater Boston area and around the world — to celebrate and elevate the diverse world of Jewish art, culture, and creative expression.
JArts’ mission is to curate, celebrate, and build community around
the diverse world of Jewish arts, culture, and creative expression.
Our vision is of a more connected, engaged, and tolerant
world inspired by Jewish arts and culture.
Let culture connect us.
Are you part of a community organization or company to who loves to revel in Jewish arts & culture? Let us curate with you.

A history of passion and partnership.
In 2014, Boston-based Jewish cultural leaders came together to explore new ways to elevate Jewish culture. The Jewish Arts Collaborative formed as the result of a merger, combining the staff and leadership of the Boston Jewish Music Festival and the New Center for Arts and Culture, with the support of Combined Jewish Philanthropies, TDC Consultants, and funding from the Boston Foundation Catalyst Fund.
JArts launched publicly in December 2015 with Boston’s first-ever, Jewish public art project: “8 Nights, 8 Windows.” Since then, through a wide range of artistic events and programs, we’ve become a valued member of the Greater Boston cultural landscape, garnering national attention and distinguished awards, while reaching thousands of audience members each year.
