created at: 2012-01-03The MEM Project seeks to engage individuals through the artistic process as a means to explore Jewish identity; and offers Jewish art workshops to young adults in the greater Boston area. Launched in 2010 as part of CJP’s PresenTense Fellowship, The MEM Project has already completed three community mural projects and four Jewish art workshops, and is now about to add Jewish art classes for young adults in their 20’s-40’s as part of its programming.

created at: 2012-01-03The first round of classes for the winter session (Jan-Feb 2012) includes Jewish Papercutting, Exploring Light in the Bible (a painting class with text study) and Jewish Symbols and Spirit (painting class) and is currently open for enrollment. Classes are 4 sessions, will take place in Somerville, and are heavily subsidized by a generous Young Adult Community Grant from CJP in an effort to encourage participation. It’s a great deal, plus participants will be able to create art, meet new people in the community, and engage in art and in Judaism in a whole new way. Space is limited! Register on the website if interested.
