Agency Information:

The JCC of the Lehigh Valley is a non-profit community center, whose mission is to build community through educational and recreational programs inspired by Jewish values. We offer a wide array of programs for children and adults of all ages, and we are open to all members of our local community regardless of background. Our goal is to create vibrancy, richness and meaning in the lives of our members and the greater Lehigh Valley community.

The JCC has served the greater Lehigh Valley since 1918, when members of the Jewish community opened a facility on 6th Street. In 1958, the JCC moved to its present home at 22nd and Tilghman St. As the needs of the community have grown, so have the facilities and services offered at the JCC. Our campus houses more than 85,000 square feet of meeting rooms, classrooms, a 600-seat open auditorium, recreational facilities including a full size gymnasium, an indoor pool, squash courts, and a fitness center. Our early childhood program, after-school program and Camp JCC summer day camp offer educational and social opportunities for children of all ages.

This thriving community organization currently serves some over 15,000 members and non-members from the 55 greater Lehigh Valley zip codes. Dedicated to the physical cultural and educational enrichment of individuals and families, the JCC continues to play a significant role in the Greater Lehigh Valley community.
