Founded in 2006, the OCJAC was envisioned as a platform to build community through the arts. Building steadily since then, the OCJAC gallery has become an exhibition space for serious artists, holds monthly "First Friday" art receptions with a Jewish twist and provides social and Jewish holiday programs throughout the year. OCJAC is now a landmark gallery in the Philadelphia art scene, and is the only gallery dedicated to Jewish artistic expression and cultural exchange in Philadelphia.

Using the arts as a springboard, the Old City Jewish Art Center advances and promotes the universal messages of Judaism & spiritually to the broadest possible audience.

The center hosts a Art exhibition which changes each month. In addition, we feature a variety of other activities, including:

•First Friday Receptions & Shabbos Dinners.

•Classes and Workshops

•Musical Programs and Concerts
