Explore Arts, Culture and the Human Experience at The J
The Jewish Community Center (The J) is known for excellence in fitness, and also for its award-winning cultural arts programming—author events, films, music, theater and more. In difficult times of cultural misunderstandings, sadness and fear, the arts present unique opportunities to explore our common human experiences and the differences that make our community stronger, more accepting and vibrant.
The J’s mainstay programs—The New Jewish Theatre, Youth Theatre, St. Louis Jewish Book Festival, St. Louis Jewish Film Festival, Gesher Music Festival and the Jewish Arts & Soul Project—present diverse perspectives and hands-on experiences that are intellectually stimulating, thought-provoking and, many times, life-shaping. Everyone is welcome at The J, and all are invited to explore its programs. Each theme and topic is universal, though presented through a Jewish lens.
This spring, the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival invites you to meet author and creator of the “Hungry Girl” empire, Lisa Lillien. Experience “Old Wicked Songs” and “Yentl” (a play with music) at The New Jewish Theatre. Learn to belly dance with the Jewish Arts & Soul Project. Or, attend an amazing screening of the musical documentary “Rock in the Red Zone,” presented by the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival.
