All Are Welcome
The Bender JCC embraces and welcomes the diversity of our community and encourages everyone to seek meaning and fulfillment by participating in our rich programming inspired by our Jewish heritage.
We open our doors to everyone, including people of all backgrounds, religions, abilities and sexual orientations, and interfaith couples and families.
Inclusion permeates our Center. Inclusion is belonging.
Built on ruach (spirit) and kehilla (community), Lessans Camp JCC builds strong Jewish identities, fosters lasting friendships, and creates memories that last a lifetime!
The Center’s post-school day programs provide students in K-7 with a safe place to do homework with staff assistance, socialize with friends, and stay active through a variety of recreational and enrichment activities.
Held in different locations throughout the U.S. and Canada every summer, the JCC Maccabi Games are a week-long Olympic-style event for young athletes aged 13-16 that promote community service, sportsmanship, and religious pride.
Youth and teens with special needs are embraced in a warm, caring, and supportive environment at the Bender JCC through inclusive, innovative programming that enlightens, educates, and boosts self-esteem.
From friends to fitness, the Bender JCC offers something for all teens in an active, fun, Jewish environment.
