More than a fun night out, a beautiful painting on the wall, or a good read on the bedside table, arts and ideas is a connection – through generations, across geography, and beyond our differences. Our cornerstone program, Tapestry, is about celebration, exploration, and building a community through the arts. Tapestry explores Jewish history, tradition, life, and future in a way the entire community can appreciate.
