Arts and Culture

Creative arts programming at the JCC is a critical means by which our community understands and appreciates itself more deeply and truly. We use the unique voices and media of visual art, film, dance, theater, musical performance, and intellectual conversation to amplify and give new perspective to the most important questions that we face as a community.

As we watch a performance or a film, join a ceramics, painting, or jewelry-making class, listen to music or poetry, or even when we read a book in a quiet corner, we become partners in the process of creation and participants in the growth of our culture.
