Calling all JAI Members:

You are invited to participate in our first
Arts Challenge

The JAI Executive Committee is pleased to announce the first arts challenge open to all JAI members.

The Hebrew word for Egypt, Mitzrayim, literally means “narrow places.” 

Jewish history has taught us to be resilient, as we have navigated thousands of years of history. Today we find ourselves in similar straits, as a modern plague circles the globe. We invite you to submit an original artwork to be included in both an online virtual exhibition and a JAI exhibit at USC Hillel set for Fall 2020.

Artwork must be received by Thursday, June 4th
