Art and Musical Events

As part of our Mission "to inspire Jewish journeys," the JCC hosts Art and Music events throughout the year, featuring a variety of local artists and musicians, to enlighten, enrich, and entertain the community. Events are typically held on Campus at the J in the Holzman Auditorium. Local artists typically have pieces available for purchase, and concerts often feature the San Antonio Symphony, or other unique musicians from around the globe.
