Jewish Experiences at the Philly J

Philadelphia’s Jewish community is vibrant and diverse, and the JCC is right at the center of the action.  And everything we do here at the Philly J is infused with our Jewish values that helps foster our diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community. We hope you will feel at home with our Jewish programs designed to be welcoming to everyone across all Jewish backgrounds, as well as families from other faiths and cultures.

Families with young and school aged children are invited to experience special holiday and Shabbat activities throughout the year. From Hannukah celebrations to Purim Fest, our special events at the Philly J are sure to be a hit for the whole family year-round. Our programs and events are open to the all, and everyone is invited. Spend your holidays with your Philly J family.

J on the Way

The Jewish Federation has invested in the JCC’s ability to build Jewish programming not only at the Kaiserman JCC, but farther afield in growing Jewish communities, including West Philadelphia and Delaware County. We are grateful to the Jewish Federation for a new grant that will allow the JCC to foster satellite Jewish programs with a focus on new parents and young families.

Leading this initiative is our new Director of Engagement, Barrie Mittica. We encourage everyone to be in touch with her about catalyzing new ideas for Jewish programs!

Set up a time to chat with Barrie!
