Connecting with Judaism through Arts Education

Artists & Musicians for Israel – Neshima received a grant for its Neshima Teacher Training program, which will prepare 1,200 teachers at 100 schools to integrate the Neshima music and arts curriculum into their classrooms. This training, in turn, is anticipated to reach 37,000 Israeli teens through an experiential model of music and art to fortify Jewish identity through lyric writing, composition, drawing and drama. Since its inception in 2006, 80 to 90 percent of the 10,000 youth participants to date cite Neshima workshops as their first positive connection with Judaism. – See more at: http://ejewishphilanthropy.com/five-israel-based-programs-receive-grants-from-jewish-community-foundation/#sthash.Vn6Uv0tF.dpuf
