Annual Events at The J
Date: November 3-21, 2016
Our 9th Annual celebration of Jewish culture featuring dynamic art, authors, movies, movies, music, dance, and theatre events.
After a generous grant from the Rose Community Foundation, the MACC expanded the popular Festival of Jewish Books and Authors by offering several performing and educational events to augment the terrific line up of nationally known author lectures. Little did we know that our expansion would lead to the colossal success that is our JAAMM Fest (Jewish Arts, Authors, Movies and Music) We believe JAAMM Fest offers Colorado the most comprehensive festival focused solely on the celebration of Jewish arts and culture.
