Betty & Milton Katz JCC Press Kit

The Katz JCC invites all men and women regardless of age, race or religion to join us in building stronger minds, bodies and spirits.

Our Vision

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

Our Mission

The Katz Jewish Community Center 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.


The Jewish Community Center was established in the forties, occupying facilities in Camden and Pennsauken. The evolution of the Center has continued for over 60 years. As the facilities grew, so did the services offered.

The new JCC, built in 1997, located on the Weinberg Campus in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a true central address for the entire Jewish community. It is a haven for Jewish organizations, children, youth and older adults. The JCC is proud to host Holiday celebrations, Festivals, Educational and Cultural programs and Social activities for the entire community.

Community events are offered focusing on education for secular and non-secular attendees as well as adult and fitness and children’s cultural arts reaching broad audiences across the three counties.

Community support and funding through the United Way of Camden County, the United Way of Burlington County, and the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, as well as partnership with the business community, enables the community to enjoy a variety of options in programming with the highest quality in service.
