About The Jack & Lee Rosen Jewish Community Center of Orlando

The Rosen JCC is the home for family life in Southwest Orlando. We pride ourselves on our diverse, inclusive community, and provide a wide array of programming for children and adults of all ages. The Rosen JCC is a not-for-profit organization.

The Rosen JCC originated as a satellite branch of the JCC of Greater Orlando, whose main campus is located in Maitland, in 1994. Operating an early childhood school out of the neighboring Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation, the program soon outgrew the facility and the community understood the need for a full-service JCC in Southwest Orlando. In 2009, the Rosen Campus in Southwest Orlando was opened, featuring new classrooms, meeting space, and a fitness center and gymnasium.

In 2015, after five years of growth, the Rosen Campus was incorporated as an independent organization and named the Jack & Lee Rosen Jewish Community Center. At the same time, we began a facility expansion to build additional classrooms, a 500-seat auditorium and theater, a new fitness area, a dedicated babysitting room, and music practice rooms.

The Rosen JCC is centrally located to the Dr. Phillips and Windermere communities. It is also easily accessible from Celebration, Hunters Creek, Winter Garden, Ocoee, Metrowest and Williamsburg.

The Jewish Community of Orlando

The Jewish community of Orlando has been around for over a hundred years, but really started to grow in the 1970s and 80s with the advent of Disney and the growth of the University of Central Florida and its surrounding technology community. Today, an estimated 30,000 Jews call Orlando home.

Kosher food abounds at Publix and Winn Dixie, which carry a significant selection of kosher and Israeli products, largely due to the significant number of Israelis living in our community. As the city of Orlando continues to grow, so does the Jewish community.

Central Florida Hillel at the University of Central Florida boasts the second largest Jewish campus population in the United States (tied with Rutgers University). There is also an active Hillel at Rollins College in Winter Park.

Life in Orlando

Conveniently located in the center of Florida, and of course with neighbors like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, Orlando is now the number- one travel destination in the United States! Last year, 72 million tourists visited Orlando, making Orlando the first U.S. city to surpass the 70 million threshold for tourists. More than just theme parks, Orlando is second only to Las Vegas in the number of national conventions hosted, largely due to the magnificent Orange County Convention Center. In fact, there are direct flights to Orlando from nearly every major city in the United States.

Living in Orlando is more about affordable homes, beautiful lakes, terrific arts and culture, gorgeous weather year-round and bucolic, freshwater lakes. Thanks to Orlando's central location, the Atlantic coast is just an hour's drive, while the slightly warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico lie 90 miles to the west. In addition to these attributes, Florida has zero income tax at either the state or local level.
