Jewish Community Center of Chicago IL

For 105 years, Jewish Community Centers of Chicago's (JCC) bold, creative vision has fostered universal Jewish values and strengthened our community through dynamic life-enriching experiences. JCC ensures that all of our programs - from early childhood, to our year-round children's programs, to summer camps, to our adult programs - embody the agency's commitment to preserve and enrich Jewish life. This passion for building a rich, meaningful Jewish life can be seen in an early childhood class where children are introduced to living within Jewish time, or in the tzedakah (charity) projects in our day camps where campers feel the joy and responsibility of making their community a better place, or at JCC's Camp Chi where campers learn about modern Israel, or in our year-round children and adult programming where Jewish tradition and values are emphasized.
