About Us

The Institute for Jewish Creativity (IJC) is a proud project of American Jewish University (AJU). The IJC encourages artistic contributions to create an authentic, thriving American Jewish culture. AJU’s core values are learning and scholarship, culture, ethics, leadership, and peoplehood.  For almost 70 years AJU has served as a thriving center and resource for individuals to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity. AJU is one of the largest and most innovative Jewish institutions in the country. The Institute for Jewish Creativity is made possible through a generous Cutting Edge Grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, and with additional support from Naomi and Jeffrey Caspe.
