Omanut: Jewish Uptown Arts

Learn more about us and support our work below!


Omanut: Jewish Uptown Arts seeks to provide quality, free community programs with a Jewish theme.  Our goal is to share the deep and long-storied history of Jewish tradition and culture with our larger New York City community.  Our events seek to be thought-provoking and also family friendly, a place where everyone in our community can feel welcome and free to be themselves. We are proud to work with so many segments of our community.


Omanut: Jewish Uptown Arts provides two major programs during the year: Sukkahwood and Uptown Jewish Film.

Uptown Jewish Film is the only event of its type in Northern Manhattan.

Sukkahwood is going strong and provides a meaningful way to use the lessons of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot to engage with our larger NYC family.

As Northern Manhattan grows more and more, Omanut: Jewish Uptown Arts seeks to provide the same type of services and cultural events that can be found in the rest of the city.
