A Note on COVID-19

In light of health and safety concerns the COVID-19 pandemic, galleries are temporarily closed and upcoming public events in our community have been postponed. 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 of social isolation, we will come together through online learning, streaming performances and virtual exhibitions (with the exception of the FENTSTER exhibition that can be safely viewed from the sidewalk). As a community, we 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.
