Arts + Culture
Celebrate Jewish heritage...the J way!
"Culture is the most attractive doorway into Jewish identity: Jewish culture speaks to the heart and soul...directly...powerfully...loudly." C. Newberger, National Foundation for Jewish Culture
At the J, we strive to enhance the quality of Jewish life in and around our community. We empower people to embrace Jewish culture by presenting two main festivals each year – the Film Festival and Bookfest. The Dallas Jewish Film Festival is held in September and the Dallas Jewish Bookfest is typically held in October or November. In addition to these events, we often host authors and other films throughout the year.
