The Simon Family JCC is your community center.

We care about the wellbeing of our community, which is why we’re giving all synagogue members* a free six-month Community Membership.

Our neighborhood is home to diverse members, with programs designed for young families through seniors—from arts and culture to health and wellness, including adult learning and social networking.

Connect with your community through recreation, social and cultural events, outdoor activities, Shabbat and holiday observances. The Simon Family JCC is the place to meet with others through fantastic one-time events and ongoing seasonal programming.

For more than 60 years, we’ve been more than a building or a pool or a fitness center or a series of cultural events. We’re all of those things, but we’re so much more. We are a mishpocha—a family, and like all families, we are something special, something that’s more than the sum of its parts.
