Giving to the MJCCA
INSPIRING JewISH JOuRNeYSTM
The MJCCA inspires Jewish identity, nourishes mind,
body and soul, embraces people of all abilities and
provides the common ground for the Jewish community.

We teach children, care for the frail, embrace individuals
with special needs, enthuse teens, provide culture,
nourish bodies and souls and provide the meaningful
and caring connections that make us a community.

We turn every day minutes into Jewish moments that
are remembered for a lifetime.

Walking through the halls, applauding a performance,
standing near the pool and cheering on the ball field,
you will hear toddlers singing, children laughing and

               A Jewish community center builds a sense of community. It is a place

               goal is to preserve and transmit, across and within generations, the
               Jewish ideals, values, traditions and heritage we hold so dear.
