Learn to express yourself

Expressing oneself is one of the best and most fulfilling ways to chase your dreams. At the J, we believe that nurturing what’s in your heart and mind contributes to a happier you.

The Culture & Arts Department seeks to demonstrate, illuminate, and celebrate the breadth and depth of the human experience by exploring the power of culture, identity, creativity, and resiliency through educational, social, artistic, and cultural experiences. Whether your interest is in art, literature, film, Jewish life and learning, or Israel, the diversity of our programs is aimed at engaging you and your family where you are right now and where you want to be, regardless of your religion.
