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. 

An online video will premiere on Friday, October 29th, at 6:00 pm EST. Participants are encouraged to watch with their synagogue community. Participants not joining a synagogue that weekend are warmly invited to join  JArts  and watch directly with the link, to be provided  following registration. 

Community partners can reach out directly to Jaime Brody at  jaimeb@jartsboston.org  for the partner link.
