Agency Information:

For nearly 100 years, Denver's Jewish Community Center (the "J") has strived to build a community where everyone belongs. The center was founded in 1922 as a place of refuge for the Jewish people of Denver, where they could safely gather under one roof to celebrate their cultural heritage.

Since then, the J has evolved into something more - more than a single building, more than just a gathering place, and more than individual departments and programs. Today, the J is an inclusive community that extends beyond its walls in which they do business. Today, the doors are open to anyone who wants to celebrate life and be a part of something more.

The J community is able to take advantage of a rich variety of programming that includes day and overnight camps, arts and culture programs, the early learning school, fitness and aquatics, and tennis.
