Arts & Ideas
Welcome to Arts & Ideas at the J!
We are so excited to welcome you into Our New J to explore our diverse and stimulating array of literature, film, performing arts, Jewish learning and new this season, culinary arts! Hear an author, enjoy a performance, take a culinary class, watch a film, attend a lecture, all while connecting with friends and neighbors in our new spaces, such as the pre-function space in front of the Kaplan Theatre and our new culinary studio. We look forward to welcoming you back to be entertained and inspired together as a community!
Be a Patron of the Arts! Patron of the Arts are dedicated individuals and families who make Jewish art and expression a priority in their philanthropic giving. Becoming a Patron helps the J continue to present a diverse and stimulating array of literature, film, performing arts, and Jewish Learning. Patron of the Arts support allows the J to contribute to the vibrancy of Houston as one of the greatest arts cities in the United States. There is no other organization in Houston that is at the center of it all, dedicated to keeping Jewish culture and arts alive like the J. Learn more by clicking here.
The Arts & Ideas Season is supported by The Evelyn Rubenstein JCC Patron of the Arts, The Maurice Amado Foundation, and a grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
