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.


All Food offered on these programs is Kosher and certified by the Vaad Hakashrut of the Capital District.

Please note: The dates and times of specific programs may change.  Please visit again closer to the date of the program or call 377-8803 for updates.


This program is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Northeastern NY, and it was made possible through the generous support of the Epstein Jewish Cultural Fund, Meyer and Mary Kurland/Gebell Fund, Jonas and Edith Fleminberg Jewish Cultural Fund.
