The JCC’s annual Jewish Book Fair & Author Series is one of central Ohio’s largest and most popular literary events, featuring nationally recognized author appearances and book signings. JCC Jewish Bookfair and Author Series presents a series of conversations exploring Jewish books and literature. Author events are scheduled during both daytime and evening hours, with tickets open to all community residents. Unable to attend our Bookfair?  You can still support us by purchasing a book using the links below for each individual author and book.

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.

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.
