Old City Jewish Arts Center
Philadelphia has always been home to a plethora of talented Jewish artists.
The OCJAC offers a dynamic gallery featuring the works of Philadelphia's finest Jewish artists and many other programs.
Our "Shabbos Gallery", which takes place on the first Friday of each month welcomes over 1,000 visitors every time it is held.
The gallery is open from 5pm every First Friday and features new artists every month.
At 9pm, when most other galleries are winding down, we offer a "Taste of Shabbos".
The crowd packs wall to wall inside and pours out onto the street outside.
A full traditional meal, including gefilte fish, salads, chicken and soup are served by volunteers.
The meal is led by a Rabbi and is intersperced with explanations on the Shabbat experience as well as Judaism in general.
