Directory Listing Overview

The Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia (JCCNV) has launched a national/international online Jewish Artists/Jewish Fine Art, Craft & Judaica Directory. The Directory will give United States and Israeli artists the opportunity to reach the more than 3,000 monthly visitors to the JCCNV website.

The mission of the JCCNV Fine Arts Department is to support and encourage the development of Jewish Artists and/or Jewish Arts and to facilitate the integration of Israeli arts to build communities. To that end, the JCCNV will promote the directory through electronic newsletters, internal collateral materials, and our program guides distributed throughout the Northern Virginia community.

Criteria: The JCCNV reserves the right to review, approve and maintain the listings and artwork submitted for inclusion in the directory. Additionally, the JCCNV may assess and remove inappropriate material/listings at its sole discretion. The standard of excellence set for the site is based on professionalism, technical capability, training, education, creativity and consistency of the art.
