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.
The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and the J Cultural Arts collaborate to create a new Chamber Music Series featuring renowned artists in an intimate concert setting. Check this page for updates on performances from the series.

Elan is a father…four times a year. Part stand-up comedy, part autobiography, part physical theatre, The Unaccompanied Minor turns an empty stage into a busy airport terminal, a trashy talk show, a third-grade science fair, and a south Florida gang war — revealing Elan’s humiliation, fear, triumph, and greatest joy. This humorous and heartbreaking act was a “top pick” during the Washington Fringe Festival by The Washington Post’s Roger Caitlin. Zafir has appeared on stage at Folger Theatre, Arena Stage, Ford’s Theatre, Mosaic Theatre, and on screen for The Making of the Mob, House of Cards, and King of Crimes. The show will be followed by a Q&A.
