JxJ and the Edlavitch DCJCC will not stand for racism or injustice to anyone. During this tumultuous time, we as a community must come together and avail ourselves as allies to the black community. We must take a stand against police brutality. It is through our voices that we can make a difference in the greater DC area and in the world. We say the names of those murdered just in the last few months: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and mourn the senseless loss of countless other sacred black lives.

JxJ Online

We are excited to launch a host of digital offerings to keep us in touch while we are “physically distancing.” Check out the many ways to stay engaged below, and follow us @JxJFest on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates and opportunities.

JxJ virtual cinema block

We are teaming up with independent film distributors to bring you a Virtual Cinema featuring theatrical releases of films that were set to open in theaters, right to your home, with half of the proceeds going to Cafritz Hall.

JxJ film club block

We’re hosting a weekly live conversation through the JxJ Film Club. Each week, we’ll pick one of the titles offered on our Virtual Cinema platform and host a live discussion about it at the end of the run. No need to be a film expert, just be a film enthusiast!

JxJ the hub block

Not sure what to watch while social distancing? Need a resource on how to support local artists? Want to receive exclusive offers? Browse The Hub for JxJ’s curated and regulary updated aggregator of the many virtual ways to stay connected and clued in.

JxJ livestreamed concerts block

Tremendously innovative musicians from around the country (and the world) are putting together Live-Streamed Concerts. JxJ gets you plugged in with a curated selection of some of the top Jewish-music acts performing right in your living room.

JxJ ways to support block

With our physical spaces shuttered, and programs postponed, some of our major revenue streams are cut off at this critical time. If you’re able to help, please consider Donating, Purchasing a Virtual Cinema Ticket, Getting a Flex-Ticket Package or Gift Voucher, or Buying a Seasonal or Year-Round Pass.

2020 Festival Postponed

Given the spread of COVID-19 and public health concerns associated with it, we have taken the difficult step of postponing the 2020 JxJ Festival until a late Summer or Fall date to be determined.
