Engaging all the senses - and souls

Music, theater, featured speakers, new ideas. The JCC’s focus on arts and ideas extends beyond any one discipline, and celebrates the wide spectrum of Jewish thought across all mediums.

From a staged reading to a featured symphonic performance, Tapestry Arts & Ideas at the JCC partners with artists and experts around the world – and right here in Milwaukee – to bring our community meaningful moments across the entire spectrum of Jewish life, culture, and tradition.

If it’s the Milwaukee Rep, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, or the Milwaukee Jewish Artists Lab – there’s no shortage of local voices, experts, and artists. But we don’t stop there, bringing national and international performers to the JCC (and our city) for lasting moments and new experiences.

Every event is different, every audience unique. Be part of the changing landscape of music, theater, and beyond at the JCC.
