JCC Info:

Founded in 1949, the Stroum JCC is dedicated to the enrichment of life for the Jewish and general community in the greater Seattle area. The J has two locations: the main campus on Mercer Island and a Seattle campus of our Early Childhood School at Temple Beth Am. Membership is open to everyone.

The J offers a variety of programs and activities for everyone from newborns to seniors. The J on Mercer Island is home to an Early Childhood School, a newly remodeled state-of-the-art auditorium, an upgraded Fitness Center, an indoor pool, and more.

We host a variety of parenting classes and weekly Tot Shabbat programs for our youngest members and their parents. School-aged kids enjoy our Kidstown before and after school care, take sports and arts classes, spend their summers at SJCC Summer Camp, and become J Explorers. Adults can join a sports league or a book club, attend events in the Kesher Garden, swim laps in the pool, or work out in our Fitness Center. Seniors learn to play bridge, join fitness classes, and attend our popular cultural arts events.

Throughout the year, the J hosts and partners with community organizations to sponsor holiday celebrations. From our community Hanukkah party to our Purim Carnival, and more.
