A Note on COVID-19

The Kultura Collective and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto are pleased to offer this website as a resource to the community to celebrate Jewish arts, culture and heritage. During this difficult time, we will come together through online learning, streaming performances and exhibitions – both socially distant and virtually. As a community, we will share and explore our culture and traditions through meaningful artistic experiences. We hope these events will keep you connected, engaged and inspired throughout this challenging time.
