JCC Programs

JCC Chicago welcomes people of all ages, faiths and backgrounds, and provides a broad array of programs designed to meet the needs of everyone from infants to adults. We work to create meaningful, experiential learning moments that connect with our collective Jewish heritage and faith in individual ways that meet participants where they are.

JCC Chicago programs are invaluable to Jewish life both in the home and within the larger community. Our early childhood programs, day camping and residential camping experiences are shaping the Jewish future by engaging participants and their families in opportunities for life-long Jewish learning and practice.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

JCC Chicago is dedicated to creating a vibrant, thriving and engaged Jewish Chicago today and tomorrow. As one of the few Jewish institutions that gathers and welcomes people of all denominations, affiliations and levels of commitment, JCC Chicago is providing meaningful ways for the entire Chicagoland Jewish population to interact and build together.

JCC Chicago's new leadership has prioritized making our nine JCC centers warm and welcoming and enhancing our relationships throughout Chicagoland. JCC Chicago is also developing more targeted and strategic development initiatives through individual, corporate and foundation giving.

Chicago is wonderfully diverse. JCC Chicago's innovative, experiental and creative programming, coupled with our dedication to providing financial resources is the hallmark of JCC Chicago. JCC Chicago gathers people representing diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and practices and helps uncover commonalities in order to unite them.

Under new leadership, JCC Chicago is making progress towards its goals of being more visible in the community, creating programs that are current and intersting for people of all ages, and working towards enriching lives and building community for all of Chicagoland.
