Enchanting New Home for Kol HaOt at Chutzot HaYotzer!
As we enter the New Year, Kol HaOt is delighted to announce that we just finalized an agreement to open our new center at the inspiring Chutzot HaYotzer Artists’ Colony in Jerusalem!
Our new home – just steps away from Jerusalem’s breathtaking Old City – will be bustling with creative, interactive Kol HaOt activities. At this enchanting venue, local and overseas tour groups, and the general public, will experience the magic of our workshops, special musical and festival events, and exhibitions, all of which combine Jewish themes with the visual, performing and culinary arts.
Following renovations, we will invite you to our Grand Opening! Watch our web site and Facebook page for updates!

Teacher Institute for the Arts: Colloquium & Expansion
The first cohort of day school educators participated in the Teacher Institute for the Arts, an inspiring 3-day colloquium in the US this past May, where they presented their year-long projects created with their respective student bodies and staff. Kol HaOt personnel, who design and lead the Institute, trained these specially-selected Jewish studies and art teachers in Kol HaOt’s methodology of integrating the visual arts into their Jewish studies programs. Watch a video of one of the projects.
Recruitment has begun for a second cohort for June, 2017. Recommendations for prospective schools should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also running an extension program for graduates of the first cohort, to enable them to continue nurturing the creative potential of art, and bring new vitality to Jewish learning in their schools.
Opened in 2015, the Institute was created and is generously funded and overseen by a national Jewish foundation dedicated to raising the quality of instruction and learning in Jewish education.
