50th To The Future

The Kaiserman JCC is celebrating our 50th anniversary!

50th To The Future!

Since 1971, the Kaiserman JCC has been among the most impactful community assets in Philadelphia. With our longstanding history as a bedrock of the Jewish community, and beyond, the Kaiserman JCC is guided by the belief that the more we get together, the more we thrive.

A History of Impact

  • Over 5,000 children have graduated from the award-winning Robert J. Wilf Preschool and Kindergarten, positioning them to thrive in Elementary School and beyond
  • Over 10,000 children have participated in our award-winning Camp Kef, providing critical childcare, and enrichment experiences for generation after generation during the summer
  • Over 7,500 children have experienced safe, enriching after school programming in our Kids Time program, learning new skills, fostering talents, and building community during out of school time
  • Over 1,000 young people with developmental disabilities have blossomed participating in the Mildred Lasch Special Needs Inclusion Program
  • Over 20,000 older adults have participated in community-fostering health and wellness experiences across our fitness, aquatics, and group exercise offerings
  • Over 15,000 teens have found a place for themselves at the JCC, across programs that include the JCC Maccabi Games, the Diller Teen Fellows, and countless other youth activities, educational, and sporting endeavors

A New Chapter

  • Amidst this 50th year anniversary celebration, the Kaiserman JCC Board and leadership have commissioned a bold, strategic vision for the future
  • Working with experts in the field, and soliciting feedback from over 100 stakeholders, this strategic plan envisions a thriving JCC for another 50 years
  • Beginning this summer, with a series of celebratory events, programs, and fundraisers, the Kaiserman JCC is poised to thrive

Help us to continue and expand our impact over the next 50 years. You can sustain our Jewish community by becoming a member, joining us for community events, and making charitable contributions.
