Jewish Cultural Arts


Jewish life and cultural arts are the backbones of programming at Schenectady JCC.

The Celebration Series focuses on Jewish holidays with fun and informative activities for children and adults.  The Celebration Series activities appeal to Jewish and non-Jewish visitors.

Our Jewish Film Festival features the latest award-winning movies from all genres that touch on Jewish life. This monthly film showing is followed by a conversation led by local subject experts.

Wings for Peace Project. This project was inspired by and in solidarity with the “Wings for Peace” mural located at the Neve Eshkol Culture & Leisure Center in the Eshkol region in Israel.  The community is invited to download the template of the dove-cut out.

Everyone is welcome!

Our mission is to build a vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive community that embraces our Jewish values, culture, identity, and connections to Israel engages the local community and enhances the body, mind, and spirit of our members.
