Boston Jewish community drops arts center plan

Boston’s Jewish community has abandoned a plan to build an $80 million arts and cultural center to be designed by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind.

The plan for the New Center for the Arts and Culture, announced in 2004, as well as other cultural projects slated for development on the newly created Rose Kennedy Greenway, was dropped due to a lack of funding.

… The New Center effort was launched originally in a collaboration between the Greater Boston Jewish Community Centers and the Combined Jewish Philanthropies to bring cultures together through the arts.
