WE ARE THE J

Welcoming. Connecting. Thriving. Ensuring our future.

The pandemic has changed many things and challenged the JCC and the community we serve. Our mission remains the same: we are the open tent of the Jewish community that brings people of all backgrounds together through best-in-class programs.

Join us for our ‘We are the J!’ Initiative, a year of programming built on our central values of Community (Kehilah), Tradition (Masoret), Wellness (Bri’ut) and Kindness (Chesed).

We are the J…today & tomorrow

Supporting kindness, community, wellness, and tradition.

The JCC’s current reality is nothing like we have ever experienced. As the needs have grown, our JCC has always adapted and expanded. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are having to redesign our community’s experiences.

THE JCC NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT, NOW, MORE THAN EVER.

For over 100 years, the JCC has been the hub of the thriving Jewish Community in Columbus, Ohio. Several generations have started their Jewish journeys here at the JCC through early childhood education, summer camp, after-school programs, and sports leagues. Our programs connect the community through every stage of life. Today, the JCC serves over 200,000 people on an annual basis, in person, and now also virtually.
