JFEST (Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival) celebrates 27 years of performances exploring Jewish history, people and ideas in virtuoso music, theatre, dance, and fine arts.  Each year we create new programs and collaborations which start in the Festival and are then subsequently performed in venues throughout San Diego and the country. JFEST partners with arts, jewish, and social organizations to presents events in theatres, libraries, and schools throughout San Diego and North County.  Upcoming in 2020 are the Klezmer Summit, new work by Hershey Felder, Women of Valor, and a music and theatre piece based on Yale Strom’s A Wandering Feast.

Heartfelt thanks to the Lipinsky Family Foundation for their visionary support of this Festival.
