Join us and support the 2020 JCC Jewish Arts Season

During this global pandemic the JCC is committed to keeping our community connected through conversations, education, and community celebration. Until we can see you in the theater, on stage, or in the audience, we hope you will join us on-line for an innovative Jewish Arts season that complies with physical distancing and keeps everyone safe. To that end, the JCC has developed a series of events to address all arts areas.

Columbus JCC Cultural Arts programming is dedicated to engaging the Greater Columbus community through the exploration of Jewish identity and culture in films, literature, music, dance, theater, visual arts, comedy, and discussions with speakers and thought leaders.

We aim to make the arts accessible to everyone by bringing a variety of innovative events and inspiring presentations that engage the mind, heart, and spirit.
