Journeys-Tourism as a Lever of JCC Growth, in partnership with ECJC. It will open on April 19th, 2023 at 11 a.m. NY time/ 6:00 p.m. Israel time.

The Hub will combine the long time Jewish experience of movement, pilgrimage, and immigration with the unprecedented global phenomenon of tourism. It will help JCCs utilize their local touristic treasures to grow their membership and revenue. At the same time, the Hub will also encourage JCCs to design and implement life changing experiences for their members and leadership in other countries. All within the context of Jewish Peoplehood - connecting different communities, cultures, histories, and tastes into one global colorful tapestry.

The 49th Aviv Carlos Halpert Jewish Dance Festival of CDI Mexico Celebrates 49

Centro Deportivo Israelita's (CDI-JCC Mexico) signature event, Festival Aviv, has been the biggest Jewish festival in Mexico for nearly 50 years. The festival, a week-long event with a variety of public presentations and segments, draws about 14,000 visitors in total, with the participation of 80 groups and about 1,200 dancers between the ages of 15 and 20.

As technology continues to play an increasingly important role in all facets of society, Festival Aviv has changed to stay up to date. Hence, the Festival has introduced the video-dance category, which enables the transmission of both pre-recorded and live choreographies. This new category expands and reaches a scattered audience in numerous nations. For the third year, JCC Global is partnering and co-sponsoring the international Online Performance of Festival Aviv with 11 dance troupes from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Israel, and Ukraine. It is part of an outstanding 10 day long Jewish Dance Festival of the highest level. You are welcome to join the celebration: Sunday, March 12, at 11 a.m. Mexico time/ 12:00 p.m. NY time / 7:00 p.m. Israel time by joining the CDI YouTube channel. The face-to-face festival ended earlier this week, with hundreds of dancers and thousands of spectators. Click here for a taste of the Festival with the Punto CDI Monte Sinai dancers.
