Cultural Arts at the Center
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, the Arts Council of Fairfax County, supported by Fairfax County.
