Our Mission

The Jewish Community Center is a vibrant and inclusive family and social gathering place that provides educational, cultural and recreational programs to serve and strengthen the community, guided by timeless Jewish values.

The JCC Denver was founded nearly 100 years ago as a gathering place for Jewish individuals and families, to get together under one roof for the opportunity to discuss the meaning of being Jewish, celebrate momentous occasions and most importantly, be by each other’s side in time of need.

Today, the Denver Jewish Community Center has taken these core principles and evolved into something more. More than a single building. More than a place for just the Jewish community to gather. We have become a Community. A Community which extends beyond the walls in which we do business. We are a Community which opens its literal and figurative doors to anyone who wants to be part of something that feels like home, a place that is both warm and welcoming. A Community we call “the J”.

Inclusivity at the J

In alignment with our mission, vision and values, JCC Denver is committed to the fundamental principles of personal freedom, equality of opportunity and human dignity. We strive to create a community that welcomes diversity. We invite and engage all those who wish to participate including but not limited to people of any: race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, family structure, ability, marital status, culture and spirituality. We will continually challenge ourselves and others in an environment of mutual concern and respect for the free expression of all individuals.

Inclusion permeates our center. Inclusion is belonging.
