Arts & Culture

Our Arts and Culture programming provides a meaningful and inspiring way to learn, socialize, stay in touch with our Jewish heritage and connect with our community. Each season we strive to bring you relevant programs and events from films and author discussions to cooking classes and concerts. While we still cannot gather at the JCC, we have put together a virtual fall for your enrichment and enjoyment and to ensure that we all stay connected. 

Contact Randi Zucker, Director of Arts & Culture and Jewish Programming, at [email protected] or 908-889-8800 x253.
