50th To The Future

The Kaiserman JCC is celebrating our 50th anniversary!

Support the Kaiserman JCC Today

Our next chapter begins with you. Thanks to a generous $500k grant from the State of Pennsylvania, we are beginning major renovations at the JCC. But that’s not all – through the generosity of donors that include the Smukler Family’s Mildred Lasch Philanthropic Fund, and Ron and Rachelle Kaiserman, we are more than halfway to our goal of raising a matching $500K. Help us catalyze the JCC of tomorrow by giving today.

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. Amidst this 50th year anniversary celebration, the Kaiserman JCC Board and leadership have commissioned a bold, strategic vision for the future. Beginning this fall, with a series of celebratory events, programs, and fundraisers, the Kaiserman JCC is poised to thrive.
