Founded in 2006, the OCJAC was envisioned as a platform to build Jewish community through the arts. Building steadily since then, the OCJAC gallery has become an exhibition space for serious artists, holds monthly "First Friday" art receptions with a Jewish twist and provides social and Jewish holiday programs throughout the year. OCJAC is now a landmark gallery in the Philadelphia art scene, and is the only gallery dedicated to Jewish artistic expression and cultural exchange in Philadelphia.
Using the arts as a springboard, the Old City Jewish Art Center advances and promotes the universal messages of Judaism & spiritually to the broadest possible audience.
The OCJAC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, financial gifts from individuals, foundations, and corporations are critical to making our many programs and services possible. Gifts to The OCJAC are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
