In JCC Maccabi ArtsFest, participants join master classes in one of nine arts specialties including the visual arts, the culinary arts, and several performing arts. The week culminates with a Final Showcase. For all JCC Maccabi participants, the week also includes plenty of time to meet new friends at amazing evening events and social activities.
