The JCCGW celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2013. We serve all backgrounds and ages, and emphasize the inclusion of people with disabilities. Our 120,000 sq. ft. facility is located on the Jewish community campus and includes indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, gymnasium, theater and gallery. We house a parenting center, preschool, day camp, after school rec recreation program, and seniors programs. Membership is almost 3000 units (6,300 individuals) and many more participate in various programs. To increase engagement we are focused on arts, culture and other “low barrier” programs that are increasingly outside of our walls and targeted particularly to families with young children. We are also focused on strengthening connections to Israel.
