Fine art is always on display at the JCC.

The JCC Taube Center for Jewish Peoplehood mounts multi-media art shows four times a year, presenting both local and international Jewish artists.  These seasonal exhibitions highlight a variety of themes pertinent to the Jewish calendar, holidays, values, text, and traditions.

The exhibitions have featured work from prominent artists including Lawrence Kushner, Siona Benjamin, Laurie Wohl, Lauren Bartone, MIND the HEART!, Hillel Smith, and many others.

Exhibitions are well publicized and are enjoyed by all who visit the JCC.

The Shmita Project

What would you do with a year of rest, release, renewal? This year in the Jewish calendar is a shmita or sabbatical year. Hazon’s Shmita Project seeks to expand awareness about the biblical Sabbatical tradition and to elevate the role that shmita, the year of rest in a seven-year cycle of Jewish life, plays in today’s society. Shmita asks us to examine our relationships with land, food, debt, work/rest, equity, and more. The works on display in our Shmita exhibit were curated from submissions to the Shmita Prize to challenge the audience to consider the relevancy and application of shmita values in our contemporary world. We hope that by engaging with these works the viewer will consider how to prepare for, mark, and engage with the shmita year.

Participating artists include: Alaiya Aguilar, Gabriella Boros, Ryan Brink, Anna Fine Foer, Mila Tanya Gribel, Ken Goldman, Beth Grossman, Rachel Kanter, Shoshana Gugenheim Kedem, Emmett Leader and Nili Simhai, Hanniel Levenson, Karey Kessler, Aaron Kohn, Julianne Mahler, Barbara Nightingale, Catherine Stern, and Sarah Zell Young.
