Due to the pandemic situation, Jewish Culture Festival Society has decided not to held 30th edition of the JCF this year. It will take place in 2021, the exact dates will be announced in a later date, once the situation is clear enough to make responsible decision.

We are planning to held some festival events in the second half of the year, hoping that by that time we will get back to normality. You may follow us on Facebook, where you can find update information about our plans as well as a lot of archival materials from the past editions.
