The Schechter Gallery: A Contemporary Art Gallery Inspired by Jewish Thought

Art aficionados connect at the Schechter Gallery with Jewish ideas through cutting-edge Israeli art. Its exhibits offer new and original interpretations of Jewish holidays, customs, rituals, and texts, expressed through various media in works created by some of Israel’s leading artists.

Jewish Learning: Lifelong Study of Jewish Texts and Ideas

Courses and lectures in Neve Schechter’s intimate environment offer the general public many options to explore Judaism: open, tolerant, engaging, and compelling. Torah Lishma, a weekly study program of Talmud and Midrash, draws serious learners who want direct access to foundational texts of Jewish tradition. Other offerings include classes on Jewish philosophy and mysticism, and on Hebrew literature.

Community: Celebrating the Jewish Year Cycle

Here is a different way for Tel Aviv residents and tourists to rejoice in Jewish holidays. A photography workshop for Tu B’Shvat for children with intellectual disabilities inspired by nature; an all-night celebration of Shavuot complete with an a capella concert in the synagogue; a Purim ball dedicated to Persian heritage, and so much more.

Curator, The Schechter Gallery

When Judaism, in all its complexity, meets contemporary art – all media and varieties – there is a spark. This is what we look for. This is what you experience when you visit Neve Schechter.

Neve Schechter provides a pluralistic platform where all narratives can be heard. This is a place that fuses Jewish community with continuity, void of any religious coercion.
