Could there be a better Shabbat to celebrate Jewish arts and culture than the weekend we read Parshat Bereishit (Creation)? This community-wide appreciation of the arts is presented in partnership with MASSCreative, the statewide advocate for the arts. Come out in support of the arts to experience just a few of the many ways arts matter to the Jewish community.
