The mission of the JCCNV Cultural Arts department is to demonstrate, illuminate and celebrate the breadth and depth of Judaism’s culture, identity, creativity, diversity and resiliency through the performing, visual and literary arts. The JCCNV 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. Cultural Arts programming is partially funded by the Arts Fund, and the Arts Council of Fairfax County, supported by Fairfax County.

Winner of the top prize for narrative world cinema at the Tribeca Film Festival, Zero Motivation provides a zany, comedic portrait of the IDF experience. A remote desert military base serves as the backdrop for a platoon of young women soldiers, biding their time pushing paper, playing computer games, and singing pop songs — while endlessly serving coffee to the men who run the show. If there is a war going on, it's one against boredom, bad uniforms, arbitrary rules, and doing everything in triplicate. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, issues of commitment — to friendship, love, and country — are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit.
Tickets: $8/ $5 members, 65+, under 30
