The Jewish Artists Initiative (JAI) is hosting our first virtual All-Members Meeting. Please join us for this special gathering. Our virtual convening will provide an opportunity to connect with other JAI members.

Meeting Highlights will include, the projects the current JAI Board and our committees have been working on this year. We look forward to sharing with you about our recently launched online membership and fundraising systems; upcoming programs like the JAI Cafe Series and the next exhibition opportunity; and the boards’ decision
to form a DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) Task Force. 

Our next JAI exhibition will launch this summer. You will learn about the submission details and how you can participate. 

Most importantly, our membership meetings are always an opportunity to hear from you. Included in our VR experience will be breakout rooms and a chance for smaller group discussions. We welcome your questions and ideas.

The JAI Board looks forward to seeing you on the 26th!
