The JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® is not an effort of any one group, organization, or program. The ArtsFest is a celebration of our entire community as we come together to strengthen our identity, engage volunteers of all ages, and build a foundation for future leadership.
The 2018 JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® in Long Beach, CA will require the guiding hands of hundreds of volunteers. From administration to transportation and everything in between – there are opportunities that fit your interest and talent. Whether you volunteer during the week of the showcase, or in a role leading up to the event, the time is now to raise your hand.
Invest in the ArtsFest with your time and talent, and along with the entire community, help build an experience that will be remembered for years to come. We appreciate your help in advanced!
