About Us

Our Mission

The JCC on the Hudson is a welcoming, inclusive gathering place where we enrich the greater community by offering social, recreational, educational and cultural opportunities guided by Jewish values.

Our History

Founded in Yonkers in 1929, the Jewish Community Center on the Hudson has grown to be a focal point for the Jewish community in the Rivertowns and greater Westchester areas, providing educational, social, cultural and recreational programs for individuals of all ages, faiths and backgrounds.

Adults come to the JCC to workout in our fitness center, take classes, learn to play a musical instrument, watch films, attend lectures or participate in clubs. Youngsters prepare for Kindergarten at our Early Childhood Program, while older children learn and have fun in our after-school program,  Almost Home, at our day camps, or in our enrichment classes and our School of Music and Performing Arts. At the same time, we continue expanding our special needs programs for school-age children and young adults. 

We're anticipating the creation of a new full-service campus replete with a pool, gymnasium, fitness center, performance space and cafe, will become reality in the near future. The new site will enable us to enhance and expand our Early Childhood Program, after-school care, and adult programming. Upon completion, the new JCC will strengthen community life for the Jewish, Rivertowns and greater Westchester populations.

We offer both member and community programs and provide scholarship opportunities for those requiring assistance.

The JCC is registered through New York State as a 501(c)3, not-for-profit corporation, guided by a dedicated volunteer Board of Governors and an experienced professional staff.
