Creativity Connects Shabbat
Creative Connects Shabbat brings the Massachusetts Jewish community together in celebration of the arts.
Creativity Connects Shabbat is about the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and WHY OF ARTS ADVOCACY.
In collaboration with MASSCreative and the Synagogue Council of Masacusetts, the statewide arts advocacy organization, we are collectively advocating for the arts as we seek to maintain a vibrant arts and cultural community. We take this opportunity to reflect on how art enhances all our lives, and its’ integral role in Jewish tradition.
