The JGallery is devoted to expanding and enriching cultural life in Austin. By providing space to both Jewish and non-Jewish artists, the gallery offers the community the opportunity to explore the richness and diversity of art from a broad range of mediums. Through solo and group exhibitions, the J Gallery serves as a vehicle to discover many avenues of artistic expression, finding common threads to Jewish experience, identity and culture. The gallery presents exhibitions and programs that aim to enhance knowledge, deepen understanding, expand art forms and take full advantage of each vibrant exhibition season.

If you are interested in participating in the Visual Arts League or for information on exhibitions, please contact Rachel Wimberley at


The Intergenerational Art Class joins adults who are passionate about art and looking for a creative outlet together with Austin Jewish Academy 5th graders for a journey of intergenerational creative expression. Participants meet one Wednesday of the month for a 90 minute class during the school year. No particular art experience needed, that’s what the class is for! Program culminates in a community art show in May.

Mitzvah Knitters is a group of dedicated crocheters and knitters that meets Friday mornings at the Dell Jewish Community Center. Participants make and donate baby blankets, lap blankets, scarves, shawls, hats and various other items. These items are then given to charities and hospitals around Austin to help others enjoy the benefits of warmth and love included with each gift.

Mitzvah Knitters welcomes to the group all who want to share their talents. The group also ask for donations to help supply yarn used for these very worthy projects.
