About us

JCC Prague aims to be a central hub for exploring and interpreting the richness, variety and implications of adopting or developing a contemporary Jewish Identity through the mediums of culture, learning and the arts. JCC offers freely accessible, open to all, culturally inspiring place. It will be a place for learning, creativity and innovation. It will be a center of the Jewish life in Prague. JCC Prague aspires to be a favorite spot for Praguers as well as visitors of Prague. It will become an established part of the Jewish community, yet it will remain an open place for all.


The JCC in Prague wants to achieve the above (and more) by addressing and celebrating Jewish identity through participatory actions in culture and the arts. This framework will connect young and young at heart Czech and expat Jews, non-Jewish aficionados of Jewish culture and culturally curious visitors by producing events that present, frame, and engage ideas and principles of Jewish culture, tradition, history and lore in a manner which is relevant to life in the 21st century with its unique challenges affecting sense of identity and purpose. The events, lessons, workshops and public program will offer people of all ages a framework to ask what it means to be Jewish in our dynamic daily lives, providing an added layer and mindset to the one offered by the formal community institutions.
