Jewish Arts Collaborative & Weissman Arts

April – June 2024 – Multi-Site

Be the Change is an art and activism initiative inspired by the Jewish tenet of justice and drawing from the ritualistic Jewish Tzedakah box. Be the Change is about making space to talk about injustice and giving us all the necessary action steps to be agents of change in our local and global communities.

Be on the lookout as we bring this powerful project to Jewish spaces throughout Orange County. Sites will be linked with a map, programming, and online.


Weissman Arts is pleased to collaborate with the Skirball Cultural Center sharing many of the boxes from their recent mounting of Be the Change. The Los Angeles version was on view in Plummer Park from June 11 – October 1, 2023. In addition to the boxes on loan from the Skirball Cultural Center, additional boxes will be commissioned for our Orange County community.

Be the Change is a national project started by the Boston-based Jewish Arts Collaborative (J Arts), which serves as lead producer. Artist Caron Tabb was inspired to create the exhibition concept in partnership with Ruth Messinger, former CEO and President of American Jewish World Service.
