Six Points Fellowship At the core of the Six Points Fellowship is the belief that creative expression is essential to Jewish community, identity, and our understanding of the world. The Fellowship was created to support the artists contributing to that process. Based on the experience of our three partner organizations, Avoda Arts, JDub Records, and the Foundation for Jewish Culture (FJC) and other current research, emerging artists have the best chance for personal and professional growth through a fellowship model of guided artistic development, project assistance, and professional education. An essential component of the Fellowship is creating an environment that will serve as an "open resource" for participants to connect to Jewish culture and practice, each engaging on their own terms.
