Through the arts, our collective creativity has the ability to build personal and communal connections to our Judaism and to God. We named this festival in recognition of B’TZALEL, the chief artisan of the Tabernacle who was in charge of building the Ark of the Covenant. He was said to be highly gifted as a workman, showing great skill and originality in engraving precious metals and stones and in wood-carving. He was also a master-workman, having many apprentices under him whom he instructed in the arts. Through his wisdom and knowledge he was able to bring out great skills in others to create the place where God would dwell. Temple Beth El will host its first ever B’TZALEL ARTS FESTIVAL, where gifted artists from within our own temple community will be sharing their talents with us through a series of arts workshops through the month of May 2017. CONNECT! CREATE! COLLABORATE! The festival culminates on Sunday, June 4th at 4pm with an opportunity to SEE, HEAR, and TASTE the creations at our Artist Showcase.

Sponsored in part by an Impact Grant from Jewish Federation & Family Services
