Jewish Community Center


From its first inception in the early 1930s, the JCC of Greater Dayton has been integral to the Dayton Jewish community. As a social hub, activity center, and immersive cultural portal, the JCC is here for everyone.

Jewish Community Center Mission

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Dayton provides a universal sense of belonging in the hearts and minds of Greater Jewish Dayton.  The creative programming ideas educate and impart Jewish values to all members of the community, regardless of age, creed, nationality, or religion.

The Jewish Community Center would like to thank our LIFE & LEGACY donors for their support. Your legacy gift will allow the JCC to provide outstanding programs and events to keep our community vibrant for years to come. Please click here to view our LIFE & LEGACY 2018 donor list.

Giving Back from the Very Beginning

The importance of volunteering and giving back is taught from the very beginning. Bringing in tzedakah is just one of the ways that the children learn about how they can do charitable or kind things for others.

The Heart of a Volunteer

In the world of JCCs, volunteers are vital. Without the “strong heart” of our volunteers, the body of our organization simply would not function.

100 Days of Tikkun Olam
