At the JCC we are dedicated to promoting and strengthening Jewish life and values through our programs and services to individuals, groups, and families.
For a families with young children this might include our weekly Tot Shabbat programs on Friday mornings or our monthly Got Shabbat Friday night dinners at homes and synagogues around town or a special Hands-on-Holidays gathering for Chanukah, Purim, or Passover. Learn more...
Our preschools and camps put a strong focus on the Jewish values of Kavod (Respect) and Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World). They also learn about Jewish culture through Shabbat and holiday celebrations, Israeli song and dance, and some lessons in basic Hebrew.
Teens who participate in our BBYO program learn the importance of building and supporting their Jewish community. While JCC Maccabi participants get to meet Jewish peers from across the continent and from Israel.
Adults can glean more about the Jewish existence through film and drama. The Baltimore Jewish Film Festival and the JCC CineFest showcase moving stories of Jewish existence through film, while our resident theatrical group, the Jewish Theatre Workshop, stages several plays a year that have Jewish themes woven into the story.
For many older adults in our community the Rosh Hashana Dinner and Passover Seder provide the only opportunity to celebrate these important Jewish holidays.
