ACE: Arts, Culture, and Education

LitFest 2020
Our new LitFest is a combination of local, national, and international authors, live to your living room through Zoom. Many of our featured speakers are New York Times best selling authors. Presented in partnership with the following JCC Consortium: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boulder, Cherry Hill, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Indianapolis, Memphis, Miami, Nashville, Palm Beach Gardens, Palo Alto, Rochester, and Seattle. We encourage you to support our local Boulder Bookstore with the purchase of these books.

Amplifying Voices
Amplifying Voices is a series of programs on the topic of race designed to bring together ideas of teshuva (recommitting to ways we can do better), personal growth, and reckoning. The programs will provide opportunities for reflection on race, religion, and identity, generating authentic and meaningful conversation so that we can learn to engage the world with sensitivity and compassion. This series is presented by ACE at the Boulder JCC in partnership with the Tucson JCC.


We want to ensure our programs are available to everyone in our community.  Please contact Jodi Zicklin at Jodi@boulderjcc.org if you need assistance to participate.

MISSION
ACE's mission is to provide enlightening and entertaining arts, cultural and educational programs for the Jewish community and the community at large. ACE's arts, culture and educational programs attract all segments of the population, create a gathering place for the full spectrum of the community, and serve as a gateway to the Jewish community.

HISTORY
Since 1982, ACE has been offering classes, cultural events and programs that are open to the entire community. ACE formed a partnership with the newly formed Boulder JCC in 2000, and now functions as an independent department of the BJCC. We remain a separate non-profit organization governed by our own board of directors, while enjoying the support and cooperation of the Boulder JCC and its staff.
