The journey begins with J.

Located at the intersection of Jewish and life, JCC Chicago is a life-affirming journey that builds on the richness and power of Jewish values. It begins wherever you are. In the greater Chicago area. And life.

For a young Jewish family in Lakeview, it begins at the Florence G Heller JCC. Here a remarkable staff welcomes a child (and all the worry that comes with her), and surround her with loving attention as she takes her first Jewish steps.

For a family in Lake County, it begins at Garoon Gateway to Science, an outdoor science park that pushes the envelope on JCC’s commitment to learning.

For a group of retirees, it begins in Northbrook where they make good on a promise to get back in shape and strengthen their friendship along the way.

For an 8 year-old city kid, it begins on the near west side (not too far from where it all began) at a summer camp where it’s a toss up for a lasting memory.
