Arts & Culture

What counts as "Jewish art" is a debate as old as Judaism itself—do we mean art by Jewish people, art with Jewish themes, or both? And Jewish culture? Which one? Jews have as many cultures as we have communities in which we've lived, from the Ashkenazi world of klezmer music and Yiddish stories from Eastern Europe, to the rhythmic music of the Abayudaya Jews of Uganda, to the spicy foods of the Mizrachi communities in the Middle East.

We're fortunate that Boston offers a broad variety of Jewish artistic and cultural experiences, giving us opportunities to experience Judaism through many different lenses. Let this page be your guide to the Jewish books, music, film, performances, food, languages and more available in our community.
