The Heart of Jewish Long Beach

Jewish Virtual Connection

The Alpert Jewish Community Center is a Jewish neighborhood and gathering place that is the heart of Jewish learning and activities, designed to improve its members’ lives in conjunction with their family, synagogue, local organizations, and the general community. We are committed to respecting and celebrating the diversity of the Jewish people and to reflect that richness in our programs.

 

During an era of social distancing, we are committed to bringing you programs that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. All of the Jewish Life and Culture programs have gone virtual in an effort to keep our community safe while keeping us connected.
