Jewish ideas are universal ideas. Doing Jewish learning with the JCC is an interconnected experience that builds community, opens the mind and uplifts the spirit.

Our programs focus on words and ideas from local and national leaders discussing everything from an introduction to Judaism to the important topics of our times.

Introduction to Judaism

The Miller Intro to Judaism Program developed at American Jewish University is for Jews and non-Jews who want to learn more, no matter your background.

The Baltimore Jewish Film Festival

For over 30 years, the William and Irene Weinberg Family Baltimore Jewish Film Festival has presented outstanding films of Jewish interest, as well as film education opportunities. Every year we present a diverse selection of engaging films that explore Jewish history, heritage, and culture.

The Queer Jewish Arts Festival

A celebration of the many facets of our identities including gender, race, religion and class through the arts, this multidisciplinary festival highlights local and national artists who are making art with Queer and Jewish content. The events amplify intersectional identity and creative expression, and examine the complexity of how we present ourselves and move throughout life.
