“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve our community in a way that brings people from all ages and backgrounds together through art,” says Callah Terkeltaub, United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s new Arts + Ideas manager. “There are few organizations that I would have jumped at the chance to work for and UJFT is one of them.”

In her previous role at VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads, Terkeltaub worked to engage a community of more than 7,000 volunteers and 200 nonprofits through the HandsOn Connect system and their proprietary software, VolunTier Vision. She says she looks forward to bringing that experience and her passion for the arts to UJFT’s Arts + Ideas programming, including the Lee and Bernard Jaffe Family Jewish Book Festival, the Alma and Howard Laderberg and Patricia and Avaraham Ashkenazi Virginia Festival of Jewish Film, the Simon Family JCC’s Israel Fest, and to curation of the Leon Family Gallery.

“My goal as the new Arts + Ideas manager is to bring people together by educating, stimulating, and enriching Jewish culture within our already dynamic community,” Terkeltaub says. “I can’t think of a better way to serve an organization near and dear to my heart than through creating fresh and impactful arts programming for the Jewish and non-Jewish communities alike.”

Terketaub says she welcomes new ideas, perspectives, or feedback regarding the upcoming Arts + Ideas season. Contact her at or 757-321-2331.
