Tapestry: Arts & Ideas



Welcome to TAPESTRY: Tapestry is the JCC Arts and Ideas initiative, now in its third year. “Why the arts?” you might ask. The arts bring meaning, elevate knowledge, speak to our hearts, strengthen Jewish identity and identity in general, channel our memories, speak to our values, and help us discover the wonders of the universe. Tapestry is at the center of our JCC mission to enrich the quality of Jewish life in Milwaukee.
