Chutzpah! Festival of International Jewish Performing Arts returns in 2021 with an exciting lineup of performances and stimulating conversations.


The Chutzpah! Festival would not be possible without the generosity of our community, including individual donors, sponsors, and government and private funders. Our heartfelt gratitude to all who have supported us, especially during these challenging times.
