COMMUNITY NEVER CLOSES - THE STRENGTH OF YOUR SUPPORT
A strong community learns together, grows together, and celebrates together. For over 72 years, the Alpert JCC has brought families, children, and seniors together to learn, share, and grow in a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment that strengthens this vibrant community that we share.
The Alpert JCC is a non-profit membership organization. We are a warm and embracing home for kids, families and seniors, and everyone in between. Our 8-acre campus houses a renowned Early Childhood Education Center, Youth, Teen and Summer Camp Programs, a state-of-the-art Fitness Center, a junior Olympic pool and Community, and Jewish holiday celebrations and cultural arts programs.
As a proudly Jewish organization, the Alpert JCC enthusiastically welcomes and reaches out to people of all ages, races, faiths and backgrounds while embracing Jewish values like learning, self-improvement and wellness, the importance of family, the joy of life, and giving back to our wonderfully diverse community, both locally and around the world.
Your support is especially meaningful during this unprecedented and incredibly challenging time. Here at the Alpert JCC, we are doing everything we can to keep our community together even though over 50% of our membership was put on hold. When the pandemic hit, our staff quickly sprung into action— developing remote fitness and Jewish cultural classes, delivering meals to our senior community members, offering a listening ear, and providing essential childcare and children’s educational services—these are just a few examples. We could not do this without you.
Your support allows us to keep our community open. While membership fees and program revenues cover only 85% of our operating costs — Your donations bridge that gap. We need to raise $500,000 this year to supplement our earned income and to be able to continue offering the breadth of outstanding programs we provide to meet the needs of our community and fulfill our mission.
With open hearts, the AJCC remains a vital pillar of the community. Now more than ever…
Our community’s families — your family — need the unique and vital programs and resources of the Alpert JCC, now and for generations to come.
STRENGTHEN THE WELLNESS OF YOUR COMMUNITY
We want our members to continue to achieve their health goals at the J! Thus, we’ve made achieving them more accessible than ever before! Join a group fitness class virtually or in-person.
STRENGTHEN YOUTH & FAMILY PROGRAMING
We have one of the most beautiful pools in all of Long Beach…well, at least that’s what we’ve heard! Our Jr. size Olympic pool is the perfect place to cool down while getting a workout in. We are also excited to announce Family Pool Time now open on the weekend!
STRENGTHEN JEWISH LIFE AND CULTURE
The role of the Alpert JCC has always been a place where people can gather – where people welcome and take care of one another. Through these difficult times, where physical distancing is how we take care of one another, we are committed to continuing our Jewish Life & Culture programming virtually to keep us all connected in spite of these unique circumstances. That continues to be our mission and we are working hard to keep this promise! Every month we host different classes, discussions, trivia nights, and lots more!
