On March 8-10, the American Jewish Archives will host a High School Leadership Program at our Cincinnati campus: "Breathing New Life into Reform: Creating Our Identity." The weekend will focus on how we, as Reform Jews, have used creative expression to reflect our Jewish identity and make the Jewish tradition relevant for each generation. We will explore the ways in which we use music, creative writing, and visual arts to shape who we are, and how we live our lives as Jews. Come ready to get your hands dirty as we dive into the topic. No creative experience necessary – just a readiness to engage! Learn more.
