The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan is home to a highly engaged, intergenerational constituency of more than 55,000 members. The vast majority of community members and participants reside in close proximity to our Upper West Side location, but many come from the five boroughs of New York City, as well as New Jersey and Westchester. As an institution that strives to welcome everyone, our constituency is made up of people of all ages, races, ethnicities, abilities, and gender identities.
Through the JCC’s Centers for Excellence, we offer more than 3,600 programs each year that are purposefully designed to educate, inspire, and transform our participants’ minds, bodies, and spirits. Our programs are as broad-ranging and diverse as the community we serve, offering multiple and interconnected pathways for personal growth and meaningful engagement with others through the creative arts, education, health and wellness, sports, support, entertainment, fellowship, and civic involvement. The JCC embodies the principle that we are all responsible for one another. Through our community partnerships and social action initiatives, we have broadened our vision of communal life far beyond the walls of our building. We are committed to sharing our resources to benefit our constituency in the most expansive way possible, and to be a resource for them at every age and stage of life.
