They’ll discuss Jewish storytelling, resilience, and the power of collective memory with moderator Kendell Pinkney, a Jewish educator, theatre-maker, rabbinical student, and creator of a Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) arts and culture fellowship for professional JOCISM (Jews of Color, Indigenous Jews, Sephardi, and Mizrahi) artists.

JCC Association of North America is pleased to present JFest: An Arts Festival for the JCC Movement, offering high quality cultural and educational content for all ages through the Virtual J platform. JFest includes complementary marketing materials and resources to deepen connections and help build resilience in JCC communities throughout the movement.
Throughout the year, JFest programs will explore three core themes of storytelling: How to Tell Your Story, How Others Tell Our Story, and How History Tells Our Story. Through dynamic programs and partnerships with Artist-Educators from around the world, JFest invites you to tell your own story, and keep us connected even when we’re apart.
