The Center and The JCC
JCC Manhattan is one of the leading presenters of Israeli arts and culture and the foremost presenter of Israeli film in America. The center is a part of the general JCC's program. The screenings will take place weekly at the JCC and connect to the JCC's already existing, thriving film program. The center is working hand in hand with the JCC's film program and builds off the film needs that are present in the community. The JCC will also be the home for the archive/library and educational programs.
