From the moment they march into Opening Ceremonies with their delegation at the kickoff of JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® teens know they are in for something special. And they get it. A week-long summer arts experience like no other, JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® is filled with workshops, performance exhibition, and the excitement of meeting new friends from all over the world, helping others and discovering a rich Jewish world. ArtsFest brings together talented Jewish teens from all over the world. Every summer, in conjunction with JCC Maccabi Games®, teens 13-17 come together for a creative experience. ArtsFest allows teens to explore their artistic spirit, gain new skills, work with top-level Artists in Residence, and engage in social service. It’s a summer experience that allows them to unleash their imagination and engage passionately with their creativity.

JCC Association of North America is the managing partner for JCC Maccabi ArtsFest®. We work closely with host communities and their local JCCs to develop the program.
