Mission Statement

The Sidney Albert Albany Jewish Community Center provides a nurturing environment where individuals and families can grow and develop in mind, body and spirit. We serve the spectrum of family life, from infants through seniors, through programs related to education, physical fitness, and communal life. Our core values are rooted in Jewish principles, and we welcome members of the community at large, regardless of their faith or background.

We are proud to offer


  • 1658 - Asher Lev came here as leader of the first Jewish settlers on this continent.
  • 1854 - First YMHA established in Baltimore to provide help for Jewish immigrants
  • 1915 - Founding of the Albany YM-YWHA.
  • 1926 - Incorporation of Albany JCC, located on lower Washington Avenue, in the former home of John Boyd Thacher, Mayor of Albany, New York State Senator, manufacturer, and writer. Notable additions to the home were a gymnasium, swimming pool, exercise rooms, and bowling alleys.
  • 1961 - As populations began to move away from the citys downtown, the need for a new location became clear, and the current center opened on 25 acres of land. Over the years, weve seen many renovations, expansions, and upgrades, including additions to the Early Childhood Center, Main Lobby, and Fitness Center.
