Jewish Arts and Culture: Doorway or Destination?

By Arnold Eisen, Daniel Libeskind, Connie Wolf, Alisa R. Doctoroff

Jewish Funders Network (JFN), 2006

Lately there's been an explosion of Jewish culture, of creative energy within the Jewish community that has resulted in many new cultural endeavors such as translating Torah into dramatic events, arts curricula that teach Jewish values, music that is Jewish but that mixes in many different idioms. Do these things promote development of Jewish identity? Are Jewish cultural offerings portals into the Jewish world for people who are not already affiliated and if they are, where do they lead? Are they fluff or are they necessary stuff? And what is the role for funders in supporting the development of these cultural offerings?
