For more than 100 years the Jewish Community Center has been a focal point of the Atlantic County community. It has been a place where families come together, Jewish culture thrives, children are cared for and their futures shaped. The Atlantic County community has flourished in substantial part as the result of the JCC's programs and services. Through the Milton & Betty Katz Jewish Community Center our children benefit from preschool and camp, developing lasting friendships. As teenagers they continue to grow as camp counselors or by participating in our fitness and teen travel programs. In sharing these experiences, they develop enduring relationships within our local community.
For seniors and other adults the JCC provides a place to come together to play mahjong, enroll in computer classes, participate in physical fitness programs and learn about art and Jewish education. We continue to expand our Jewish education programs for adults through films, books and classes. The JCC brings together friends and family for learning, celebrations, and commemorations to create memories that last a lifetime.
