The 2018 JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®
is set to be in Long Beach, CA!

The Barbara and Ray Alpert JCC in Long Beach, CA is thrilled to be the host of the 2018 JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®, August 5-10.

ArtsFest is a weeklong arts experience for creative Jewish teens ages 12-17, featuring workshops in a variety of specialties with some of the leading artists in each field. It offers participants the opportunity to partake in intimate master classes and meet other Jewish teens from across the United States and around the world.

All Jewish teens are eligible to participate in ArtsFest and can choose from 8 different specialties: Acting/Improv, Vocal Music, Rock Band, Visual Arts, Musical Theater, Dance, Culinary Arts, and Social Media Squad.

The program culminates in an exciting final showcase, where each specialty will have the opportunity to share their creations with fellow ArtsFest participants and invited guests.

Not a teen? Not to worry! There are many ways you can get involved in one of the most exciting and life changing events the AJCC will be part of next year! GET INVOLVED!

Until the 2018 JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® Begins!
