About This Charity
The Ashkenaz Foundation is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to fostering an increased awareness of Yiddish and Jewish culture through the arts. Through its biennial festival and an expanding slate of year-round programming, Ashkenaz showcases the work of leading contemporary artists from Canada and around the world working in music, film, theatre, dance, literature, craft, and visual arts. Ashkenaz places an equal emphasis on the need for preservation and innovation within this cultural milieu. Ashkenaz incorporates in its mandate and programming many other manifestations of Jewish music and art beyond Klezmer/Yiddish, and actively pursues fusion and cross-cultural exchange with artists from outside Jewish cultural traditions through commissioned work and special projects. Ashkenaz places a strong emphasis on local and emerging talent, as well as on education and community outreach. Ashkenaz forges partnerships with other entities and like-minded organizations in areas of overlapping interest or cause.
About Our Charity
For nearly twenty years Ashkenaz has brought the finest in Jewish art and culture to Toronto audiences. Now entering our 2016 festival, we are proud to present an amazing new festival featuring 90 acts and over 200 performers from across Canada and around the globe.
Concerts, theatre performances, literary events, visual arts exhibits, kids programs, and hands-on workshops in dance, music and craft... all capped off by the Ashkenaz Parade, which will once again transform Harbourfront Centre into a swirling spectacle of sound, colour, and group revelry.
Ashkenaz offers a variety of patron packages to its valued donors. All patrons receive a charitable tax receipt and acknowledgment in our Festival Program Book and website. Donations of $500 and up receive additional benefits. For more information on patron benefits, please contact (416)-979-8282 or email ed[at]ashkenaz[dot]ca
