Coming Soon: 3rd Annual JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival
What is it about film that gets us so excited? Is it that we peer into lives and cultures that aren’t our own and learn more about other worlds? Is the many, diverse stories of Jewish identity, struggle and joy?
The 2016 festival runs March 10-20th. Find out what moves you on March 6th at our VIP gala preview.
We’re still planning the event, but our films have been chosen. Tickets will be on sale soon at a theatre near you.
Find the spotlight – and your confidence.
We offer an outlet for creativity and help budding actors become confident in front of an audience. Kids and adults who take theater classes at the “J” improve their communication and leadership skills while enjoying the camaraderie of a fun-loving, encouraging creative community.
We produce popular musicals, full-length drama and short stories throughout the year. Whether your child craves the spotlight or just wants to meet new friends, there’s a place for that.
Forget your troubles, come on, get happy.

Ballroom has again become one of the most popular forms of dance. While some people appreciate its nod to nostalgic times, many dance for other reasons: It’s a great way to stay in shape. It has been proven to promote to keep the mind active and healthy. Most importantly, knowing how to dance provides confidence and a source of social enjoyment on the dance floor.
Our new ballroom dancing classes are run by Ballroom Chicago and founder Bob Urbon who teaches styles from Rumba to West Coast Swing.
Classes are conducted in 5-week progressive sessions designed to be a casual, fun remedy to the dreaded Two-Left-Feet syndrome.
