Studio Israel

Studio Israel is a conversation series that invites audiences to join leading artists and academics to learn about Israeli art, dance, food, fashion, and more.

Upcoming conversations: October 20, December 1, February 9, March 30

Painter Zoya Cherkassky will be among the four featured artists this season. 

The Studio Israel conversation series was inaugurated in the fall of 2020, in partnership with the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University and The Vilna Shul, and is made possible by generous support from Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP). Studio Israel is also cosponsored by the Consulate General of Israel to New England. This peer-led series invites audiences to join leading artists, academics, and community leaders for a panoramic journey through the landscape of Israeli art, dance, food, fashion, and more, that investigates the diversity and nuance of Israel’s variegated social, cultural, and political aspects through the lens of the arts. 

This successful series returns with four new installments, spanning October 2022 to March 2023. We will continue to expand the scope and diversity of artists featured and delve more deeply into the nuances of Israeli society.
