we are family
We believe play is a child’s work. Every class, activity, and experience we design for younger kids offers a fun and meaningful learning opportunity. Pre-natal, mommy and me, and parenting classes support our commitment to the well-being of the whole family.

We are a vibrant community center grounded in the belief that contemporary Jewish sensibilities can be a source of inspiration, connection, and learning for the individuals and families we serve throughout downtown Manhattan. We focus on health and fitness, education and enrichment programs, and innovative arts and cultural programming.
We are committed to the development of the whole person and bettering people’s lives and strengthening individual and family connections by building an inclusive, vibrant, and sustainable community.
