We just finished writing our evaluation for the Arts Builds Community Grant we received in 2011. Jewish Arts Month wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of this granting organization.
Our planners worked hard to document each and every event held. We took copious notes and learned a lot. We made a few mistakes but we had numerous successes. 
Stay tuned. We will soon post what is scheduled for JAM 2012~
We chose not to apply for another OAC grant this year. RACC is supporting our Playwriting for Seniors program (Acting Our Age!)
We hope the community will now contribute financially to support our JAM endeavors. In fact, we are seriously contemplating a name change.
It will still be JAM....but we are thinking that Jewish Arts Moments might be a more accurate idea. Spring will become a season of Jewish Arts Moments...more than can possibly be contained within a month!
Care to donate? Send a check written to the Mttleman Jewish Community Center with JAM written on the memo line c/o
6651 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland 97201
See y’all soon!
