Bold Jewish Idea

Use creative expression to bring together young people from diverse cultural and faith communities.


What it looks like

Olive Tree Arts Network leverages poetry, spoken word, rhythm, music, and art to build relationships between people of diverse faith communities. They also serve to build bridges and relationships among participating schools, parents and communities through dialogue, education, performance and outreach.

Children learn tools to better express themselves and listen with respect to others, and along the way gain appreciation for other cultures and strengthen their own pride and self-esteem.
