Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City
In all of Kansas City, there’s nothing like The J. It’s the place for you and your family to live up to your goals, your aspirations, your best you.
Founded on Jewish values and open to everyone, The J is the metro’s original community of healthy lifestyles.
Our Mission: To build a strong, vibrant and inclusive community that enhances wellness, meaning, and joy, based on Jewish values, heritage, and culture. Our Vision: We are a welcoming community that embodies Jewish values in a safe and respectful environment. People of all ages and backgrounds learn and grow at our ‘home away from home.’
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (“The J”), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, opened in 1914 in midtown Kansas City, Missouri, and has grown and adapted to serve the changing needs of Greater Kansas City’s Jewish and secular communities. We’ve continuously offered the finest in recreational, social, and educational services as our facilities have transitioned to Overland Park, Kansas.
We’ve recently expanded! With the generosity of our community and donors, our Capital Campaign was a success and we are thrilled to announce the beautiful new expansion is open with more space to play, workout, dance, sculpt, and park!
