The Arts can be a powerful vehicle for strengthening Jewish identity, transmitting Jewish culture, and for creating or re-creating Jewish memories if Arts programming is based on Jewish themes and is interactive. However, most Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) devote only limited resources to the Arts. This article presents a model for transmitting Jewish culture through the Arts that enables JCCs to use their resources most effectively.
