Description

JxJ is a multidisciplinary arts program that encompasses the Washington Jewish Film and Music Festivals, alongside hybrid arts programming. The public programming of JxJ is split between 8+ weekly programs that take place in Cafritz Hall—a state-of-the-art performance and cinema venue in the Dupont area of Washington, DC—and an annual Festival (May 12-29, 2022) that is presented on stages and screens throughout DC and Maryland. JxJ annually attracts 30,000 patrons across 180+ events.

Objective

JxJ employs the moving image to explore the breadth of the Jewish and Israeli Experience, in the process promoting awareness, appreciation and pride in the diversity of the Jewish people. JxJ programs are organized to foster consciousness of Jewish identity, history and culture while providing an open and inviting forum for engaged discussion and exploration of these themes.
