About Us

There’s something about this place.®

Our Mission

The Katz Jewish Community Center (JCC) is committed to promoting and enriching Jewish culture, heritage, values and lives by providing outstanding educational, social and health & wellness programs and experiences for our community.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the premiere Jewish social, cultural, recreational and educational center that serves the South Jersey community. We strive to preserve and enrich Jewish culture, heritage and values by providing programs and services for all ages and abilities.

Our History

The Katz JCC was established in the South Jersey Jewish community in the 1940s with facilities in Camden and Pennsauken, NJ. As the facilities grew, the services we offered expanded.

The new JCC, the building we currently reside in, opened its doors in June 1997. Located on the Weinberg Community Campus in Cherry Hill, NJ, the JCC is the central place for the entire community.

The Katz JCC is home to our award-winning NAEYC accredited Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center for children as young as three months. The JCC also includes a state of the art health and wellness complex that provides fitness opportunities for all ages and abilities. Our award-winning after school programs, Just4Kids and JCrew, are the destinations for children K-8th grades which offer homework help, enrichment activities, computer lab and creative arts. We are also home to two award-winning South Jersey day camps, Early Childhood Camps at the Katz JCC for children ages 2-5, and the JCC Camps at Medford for campers ages 3-14. The JCC has also become a haven for Jewish organizations, children, youth and older adults and individuals with special needs.

The Katz JCC is proud to host numerous enriching educational, social and entertaining community events throughout the year. We encourage individuals of all faiths, cultures, ages and abilities to be a part of this dynamic and vibrant community.

We are grateful to receive community support and funding through the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, the United Way of Camden County, the United Way of Burlington County, and partnerships with businesses in our community, which enable us to provide the best programs, services and events.
