This publication, created in collaboration with JCC Global focuses on the role Jewish culture can play in nurturing Jewish collective consciousness, from the family unit, through local organizations and on to national and global frameworks. The spirit and essence of Jewish civilization is best captured by artistic and communal expressions and depictions of ceremonies and celebrations, music, literature, theater, food and more. But those cultural/ethnic expressions are not just there to solidify the Jewish collective memory. They also provide the platform for imagining, envisioning, shaping and expanding the Jewish future. In the process they energize communal processes, by evoking a sense of both a shared fate and a shared destiny.
