Literary: Learning Through Literature

Through the literary programs of the Arts + Ideas subscription series, the Weinstein JCC brings sought-after authors, celebrities, and influencers to our community, as well as a popular annual book fair.

The Fife-Davis Family Annual Jewish Book Fair

For more than 35 years, the Weinstein JCC has celebrated Jewish books and authors at its annual Book Fair. The goal of this event is to educate the community about Jewish literature and to stimulate discussion and thought regarding current Jewish issues, history, philosophy, literature and poetry. Check back next fall for the dates of our 2021 fair! 

20+ Years of Tradition

Janet Reno. Kirk Douglas. Richard Dreyfuss. Dr. Ruth. Carl Bernstein. These are just a few of the many fascinating speakers who have graced our stage in the more than 20 years of the JCC Forum. This highly popular event sells out quickly. By becoming an Arts + Ideas subscriber, you can guarantee your attendance at this year’s fascinating presentation, sure to engage, enlighten, and impress!

The Weinstein JCC will announce the 2021 Forum speaker soon ~ stay tuned!
