Alef Bet Mural on the future Smith-Kogod Cultural Arts Center
Artist: Rabbi Mat Tonti
Jewish tradition teaches us that there is a positive aspect to destruction, for through destruction comes creation, like stepping on a glass at a wedding or a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. The house will be altered when the Smith-Kogod Cultural Arts Center is built, and in that transformation, its purpose will be renewed. The second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, BET appears at the top. BET is the first letter of BAYIT (house in Hebrew). This house was the J’s first home. BET is the first letter of the Torah, our document of creation.
NEW! Submit your proposal for solo or small group shows that will celebrate and explore themes reflective of the Pozez Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia's mission: to build Jewish connection, community, and peoplehood through meaningful opportunities for every individual to explore the boundless potential of Jewish life. All applications will be reviewed by the Pozez JCC art selection committee. Submission form.
