Community Events


The ♥ of the community, powered by you.

We’ve been told it time and again; here at the JCC, we’re a community hub, connecting people across all backgrounds. We’ve always got an engaging and inclusive community event coming up.



Each June, join JCC community and staff members at our Annual Meeting. The meeting is part planning and part party, as we look back on all we’ve accomplished and look forward to all we’ve yet to do.

The St. Paul JCC is excited to present Engage 2018, an evening of Jewish Learning.

Fore! the Kids Golf & Games Benefit is our annual fundraiser to support deserving families with scholarships to attend our programs.

Founded in 1919, the Tzofim were the first Zionist youth movement in Israel. Today, the Israeli Scouts continue to bring a taste of Israeli culture to communities around the world through song and dance.

Every year, the St. Paul JCC presents the Twin Cities Jewish Book Series, a celebration of Jewish authors and their works. The series features notable Jewish authors hosting talks about their books, which span a wide variety of topics.

Connect to the community and the world with the annual Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival! A partnership between the Sabes JCC and the St. Paul JCC, the festival showcases feature films, documentaries and shorts from around the world on themes of Jewish culture and identity. The films are paired with community events to inspire dialogue and provide meaningful moments of community engagement.

A Fringe-like festival of Jewish humor featuring one-person shows, stand-up comedy, workshops, film and additional events showcasing Jewish performers and presenters.
