New York City has always been a hot bed for up-and-coming talent, and it is no coincidence that this city is also home to one of the largest Jewish communities. From the Yiddish theaters of the Lower East Side and Greenwich Village’s beat poets, to the galleries of SoHo and rock clubs on the Bowery, the contributions of Jews have left an indelible mark on downtown culture. Come hear the next generation of Jewish voices and be able to say I saw them when. . . .

This event will showcase the best local Jewish talent from a variety of performing and visual arts. Established performers will introduce emerging Jewish artists gathered for a dynamic evening of cutting-edge literature, art, comedy, and music. Enjoy these performances by artists on the verge of stardom and don’t miss the chance to see them in an intimate setting in Lower Manhattan. After the program the festivities continue on the Museum’s third floor terrace overlooking NY Harbor and Statue of Liberty with an after-party featuring the musical stylings of DJ Handler.
