Saratoga Jewish Community Arts
Saratoga Jewish Community Arts, celebrating its fourth season, is a series of programs coordinated by Temple Sinai of Saratoga with diverse collaborating organizations. The series is underwritten by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York and offered intermittently from September through May. Programs are diverse and cover a broad range of interests and themes using film, live performances and lectures for the broader Saratoga and beyond communities.
Topics have included Being Connected in the 21st Century, Life in a Jar – The Irena Sendler Story, Letters from Anne (Frank) and Martin (Luther King), American Jewish Story through Cinema, Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of WWI: The story of WWI Jewish military service in the U.S., England and Germany, The World of Sholem Aleichem: Changing Jewish Community in the early 20th Century, 300 Ways to Ask the Four Questions and an Annual Evening of Jewish Storytelling.
The topics are frequently family friendly and offer an opportunity for discussion with a panel, an author, actors or other presenters. The settings are generally casual with dessert receptions or a light dinner. Events have been held at both Temple Sinai or at Skidmore in Saratoga Springs. While reservations and a small donation are requested, the events are generally of no cost.
