Arts Matter Shabbat

Join with thousands of art lovers and advocates across the state on Friday, October 27 in celebration of art on the 4th annual Mass Creative #ArtsMatterDay. A diverse array of artists will explore Jewish journeys through the arts at local synagogues and organizations, a theme most fitting for the week’s Torah portion, Lech l’Cha, which describes the start of Abraham’s spiritual journey.

Join any of the participating groups to help rally the community around the arts. These events open to all. Registration fee only required for dinners.
