Arts & Culture
The arts and culture programs
of Hillel of Greater Toronto is an important aspect of Jewish life
on campus. The program serves students who are interested in all
facets of artistic and cultural life.
These programs offer students a way to express
themselves creatively, to develop specific art skills, to engage
in the Jewish community in a new way, and to meet other students
who have similar interests. The program creates a foundation on
which the community of Jewish student artists is built, and is central
to the development of a rich artistic and cultural community.
Importantly, the arts and culture program also
offers students a way to explore their Jewish identity in an open,
expressive, and intellectual environment. For example, last semester
Hillel held a workshop exploring Jewish identity through clay sculpture
where students discussed issues of representation, and symbolism
in the context of contemporary and traditional Jewish thought.
Be sure to check back on the website to find out
about arts and culture programs happening on your campus.
