The HGF believes in the power of Jewish cultural experiences. They help us explore, educate, and celebrate our heritage and the joys of being Jewish. Culture plays an essential role in achieving a vision of a thriving Jewish community. One in which diverse groups of people can live together, help each other, and work toward a shared future.

The Jewish Arts & Culture Initiative (JACI) provides funding and resources to support innovative projects and programs and to stimulate collaboration for the benefit of the community.

JACI also provides the community with marketing and media resources to help promote Jewish programs in the region.
