Jewish Arts_2015 FINAL_BLUE




Grants from the Columbus Jewish Foundation’s Lenore Schottenstein and Community Jewish Arts Fund and other related Jewish arts endowments are made to enhance greater public awareness of the Jewish arts in Central Ohio. Emphasis is on:

  • Stimulating greater public appreciation for the arts in Jewish life through arts programs of high artistic merit,
  • Promoting and enhancing participation in Jewish art activities and events, or
  • Encouraging activities furthering the enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of visual, performing and/or media arts with Jewish content and/or relevance to the Jewish experience.

Certain projects may be eligible for multi-year funding, particularly if they are integral to the successful implementation of clearly defined strategic planning objectives.   Continued funding is contingent upon measurable success in meeting the strategic objectives and available funds.
