2014-2015 Cultural Events and Performing Arts Series
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 JCCNV members and the general public to celebrate and appreciate Judaism’s culture, people, spirituality, wisdom, humor and creativity.
Unless otherwise noted, all performances take place at the JCCNV. Check back for updates and additional information on all events. All programs and dates subject to change.
