Marvin Pertzik Cultural Arts Department is dedicated to engaging the community in the exploration of Jewish identity and culture through film, performance, theater, visual arts, literature and learning.

Our Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival features some of the best feature films, documentaries and shorts from around the world on themes of Jewish culture and identity. Each winter, our Jewish Humor Festival make us laugh just when we need it, presenting local and national guest artists and comics. Our 45-piece symphony orchestra is one of the oldest volunteer symphony orchestras in the country. Our wide range of day time programs add to your knowledge, deepen your curiosity and connect you to the community. Plus, The Minnesota JCC is the home for many wonderful art exhibitions featuring local, national and international artists.

Due to Covid-19, most in-person programming is on pause. We are offering a wide range of virtual opportunities, including art exhibitions, book discussions, speakers and more.
