Arts

The JCC is the place to get creative! We have art, music and performing arts classes and programs for all ages.

 American Jewish Museum, housed in the JCC in Squirrel Hill, presents thought-provoking exhibits year-round.

For those looking to perform or attend performances, JCC middle-schoolers and teens put on shows each spring, as do our dance students. Every summer, Performing Arts Camps continue the tradition of JCC musicals, and the JCC partners in hosting the Pittsburgh Jewish Music Festival.

Arts for Children and Teens
Our youngest children can participate in art classes and Kindermusik through My Baby and Me in Squirrel Hill and Family Place in the South Hills.

School-age children can choose from a variety of art classes at the Squirrel Hill and South Hills facilities. We also offer summer camp programs that focus on the arts, from arts specialty day camps and even a special arts week at our overnight Emma Kaufmann Camp.

Arts-minded teens may want to participate in the annual Maccabi Arts Fest.

Dance classes and performances are offered for children as young as age 3.

The Philip Chosky Performing Arts Program supports children's and teens' musical productions and performing arts camp.

Arts for Adults
Art classes for adults are held in Squirrel Hill and the South Hills.

Pittsburgh Jewish Musical Festival
Annual summer concert series devoted to improving cultural life for Pittsburgh's Jewish and artistic communities at large. Pittsburgh Jewish Music Festival is unique in its devotion to Jewish-themed classical music by Jewish composers and influenced by Jewish musical traditions.
