Arts + Ideas

The hub of Jewish life in greater Seattle is home to eclectic and invigorating Arts + Ideas programs.

SJCC is thrilled to bring you another amazing season of Arts+Ideas in the theater and online for film screenings, comedy magic, and our new Chew on This! Speaker Series, featuring authors, chefs, and thought-leaders to feed your mind, soul, and palate.

This season’s artists will make you think, laugh until you cry, consider a different side of things, dance the night away, and connect with your community. And, coming in March 2023, is our 28th Seattle Jewish Film Festival. Learn more on our SJFF homepage here >>
