Arts + Culture at The J
Welcome to Arts and Culture,
our community’s convergence point for the best in theatre, visual arts, music, dance, literature and film!
Here you’ll find stage productions and classes for youth and adults; art appreciation programs and exploration of the local art scene; literary salons and visiting scholars, an annual film festival and surprising special events throughout the year.
It’s all here,
enabled by collaboration with centers of excellence throughout the city, enriched by Jewish values and Jewish traditions.
Enjoy our online descriptions, visit us when you’re at the J and
for our sometimes funny, often intellectually challenging, occasionally provocative and always inspiring 2017 season!
