Who are we? JxJ encompasses the Washington Jewish Film and Music Festivals, alongside a year-round film and music program.
JxJ’s year-round program consists of advance and sneak peek screenings, limited theatrical runs and post-screenings conversations that take place at a state-of-the-art concert and cinema venue in the Edlavitch DCJCC on 16th and Q Streets.

One of the largest and most respected Jewish film festivals in North America, the Washington Jewish Film Festival (WJFF) is an international exhibition of cinema that celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture and experience through the moving image. The WJFF was founded in 1990. Established in 1999, the Washington Jewish Music Festival (WJMF) promotes a broad appreciation of Jewish culture through presentations of extraordinary performing artists who preserve and invigorate Jewish music in contemporary culture
What do we offer 20s and 30s? Tickets to films are $15 or less, with frequent young professional discounts. With screenings, klezmer brunches, concerts, and limited runs of films you can’t see anywhere else, JxJ brings the best of Jewish film and music right here to DC!
