What is Kol HaOt?
Kol HaOt imparts Jewish values, texts and history through a creative synthesis of the visual and performing arts.
We believe that harnessing the arts, via our interactive programs, is a necessity, not a luxury, and is an effective model for Jewish education, identity and community.
