Arts & Culture


The Mandell JCC has always been dedicated to fostering the arts, and we offer numerous programs and events throughout the year featuring different mediums.  Among them we offer two major cultural festivals:  the Jewish Book Festival and the Hartford Jewish Film Festival.


In addition to our festivals, the Herbert Gilman Theater offers a 400-seat theater, equipped with special seating for people with physical disabilities and the hearing impaired. The theater also has a backstage Green Room with dressing rooms and restroom facilities.

For the art lover, our Chase Family Gallery offers a tranquil setting to view art shows that rotate monthly. 

Rental options are available for both the Herbert Gilman Theater and the Chase Family Gallery.
