In the midst of these very difficult times, this project delivers a message of hope to students in Israel through art created by students in Boston. Projects developed and workshops were facilitated by Shirah Rubin. Funded by CJP and Hebrew College. Curated by Deborah Feinstein and the Hebrew College Arts Initiative.
