Performing Arts Series

The J Performing Arts Series, open to all members of the metro community, includes public performances of professional music, dance and theatre productions, play readings, Broadway cabaret events, and children’s theatre productions.

The Performing Arts Series presents cultural programming designed to engage people of all generations, and to provide texture and insight into the rich cultural history and contemporary trends of the Jewish people. The Series strives to make the J a destination for both J members and the general public to celebrate and appreciate Judaism’s culture, people, spirituality, wisdom, humor and creativity.
