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.

Camp Shalom Seed Starts

The K-Club did a wonderful job starting our garden this month. We planted seeds of six different vegetables: sugar snap peas, radishes, kohlrabi (a weird looking, but delicious root vegetable), mixed lettuce, spinach and curly kale.

Camp Shalom Registration Notice

Hello Camp Shalom parents! We have some exciting news to share!

JCC Children’s Theatre is now JCC YOUTH Theatre!

JCC Children’s Theatre, a program open to kids in 3rd through 12th grade, is now named JCC Youth Theatre.

Early Childhood – The magic behind the mitzvahs

Every day in the JCC Preschool, Jewish traditions come to life. It might look like magic, but it’s absolutely due to our amazing staff of teachers and assistants.

Tikkun Olam at the JCC

The cliché is true: there’s no Jewish holiday celebration that doesn’t involve food! At the JCC, it’s also true that a holiday celebration isn’t complete without the opportunity for our community to partake in tikkun olam, the Jewish value of repairing the world.

The JCC and the Magic of Music

Music is a powerful thing. It can evoke feelings of happiness and joy, or move us to tears.

Summer at the JCC is fun, fun, fun!

In Early Childhood, when we think of summer camp we think of fun, fun, fun! As teachers, we look forward to planning and executing our summer theme and lesson plans. It never ceases to amaze me that we can play in the pools for eight weeks every day and the children still love every minute of their time in the water (us too)!

2019 Jewish Film Festival Opening Night at The Dayton Art Institute

The 19th Annual Dayton Jewish Film Festival will open at the Dayton Art Institute on Tuesday, June 4 at 7 p.m. The festival (running June 4 through June 27) will bring to Dayton and Yellow Springs the best in Jewish and Israeli cinema.

What Your Kids Really do at Summer Camp

“One thing that makes Camp Shalom unlike any other camp is its emphasis on exploring the world around us. Campers have the chance to experience the outdoors, interact with people from different backgrounds, and discover new places in the community…”
