Brooklyn students Grades 9-12 can draw, paint, take photographs, make sculptures, prints or mixed media pieces that depict a Jewish life in Brooklyn. These pieces can be portraits or portray Jewish people engaging in an activity, from a holiday celebration to being at a synagogue, from cooking to playing sports, from talking to dancing to singing and so much more.
