14 things to do in the D.C. area this week

Wednesday, May 8

JxJ Festival at various locations: The long-running Washington Jewish Film and Music festivals have merged into one super-festival. Now called JxJ, the celebration includes elements of its two predecessors — there are more than 50 feature-length films and dozens of musical performances — and branches out into art, food, comedy and theater. JxJ also features the return of the popular “Two Jews Walk into a Bar” bar crawl (May 23), in which $30 gets you three drinks and the chance to watch six short films. Because the Edlavitch Jewish Community Center is undergoing major renovations, the festival is happening in theaters, performance spaces and restaurants all over town. Through May 26. Single tickets $13.50-$36, passes $30-$325.
