Discover Culture



November 3 - 17

Each November, the JCA celebrates its annual Jewish Cultural Arts Festival. This Jewish literary, film and arts festival features a variety of events including films, performances and its signature event, the Annual Jewish Book Festival. Now in its 23rd year, the book festival showcases renowned authors you won’t see anywhere else in Jacksonville. We'll also have our pop-up book store, back by popular demand, to complement the festival. Visiting authors' books will be for sale, and a great selection of books curated by the Jewish Book Council will be available for a nominal donation to the JCA. All events are free and open to the entire community. For additional details about the festival or how to get involved, contact Lior Spring at (904) 730-2100 ext. 318 or
