Community Chanukah Celebration featuring The LeeVees

join us for a "Southern Fried Chanukah"

It’s Chanukah, y’all! Celebrate the first night of Chanukah at the JCC! We’ll light the menorah, nosh on Southern fried chicken and latkes, and enjoy a live concert by The LeeVees.  Their Hanukkah Rocks CD is by far the best holiday/Chanukah record of the last 20 years, according to Bob Boilen of NPR’s All Things Considered.  Formed in 2005 by Adam Gardner (Guster) and Dave Schneider (Zambonis), their intent was to write modern rockin’ classic Jewish songs about Chanukah, fun, food, family and more. The band has been featured in many television appearances and, most importantly, has played numerous JCCs across America.

Special thanks to Cathy and Morris Bart, the Jewish Endowment Foundation of Greater New Orleans, and the Feil Family Foundation for sponsoring this event, and for their continued support of Jewish programming.

New Orleans JCC Campers March for Kindness

Uptown summer campers demonstrated the importance of being kind and loving others during the 4th annual Kindness March.


Celebrating Freedom and Serving Others

Independence Day, so often equated with fireworks, cookouts, and summer sales also has an important and meaningful history. It not only commemorates the birth of our country, but also celebrates the freedoms that have enabled the Jewish community in the U.S. to thrive.


A Celebration of Resilience, Resistance and Hope

Join the New Orleans JCC and 60 other museums and cultural institutions around the world for We Are Here: A Celebration of Resilience, Resistance, and Hope on Sunday, June 14 at 1:00 PM CST.
