    Jewish Lifestyle and Culture

    At the Oshman Family JCC, Judaism is more than a religion or heritage—it's a rich array of cultural experiences to add meaning and enjoyment to your life, no matter what your background or connection.

    Take part in our artistic, cultural and lifestyle programs that bring Jewish experiences to life!


    The Architects of the Jewish Future Speaker Series brings thinkers, activists and creators at the cutting edge of Jewish life to the Oshman Family JCC. We believe that the story of Judaism in the 21st century will emerge out of the work of these trailblazers and invite you to get to know these individuals and their visionary ideas in an intimate setting.
