Shalom! Experience the JCC

We’re more than a state-of-the-art fitness and aquatics center – we are a neighborhood community center that lifts others. Conveniently located on acres of land in Brighton next to the Erie Canal, we have pools, nature trails, playgrounds, and a community that is inclusive and diverse. You should join us!

We are dedicated to building a community that is strong at its core. We invite everyone into our ‘tent’ to experience the compassion, respect, and authentic connections that are unique to the JCC.

The Jewish value kavod, meaning respect and honor, is the pillar on which our Center stands. It means we are people who care about people. We take others at their word and give people the benefit of the doubt because doing the right thing and honoring each other with our actions is vital to ensure all feel welcome at the JCC.

Kavod is a value we live by here. 

What does it mean to live by the kavod code?
• Respect each other and our unique differences
• Act thoughtfully and exercise good judgment
• Regard the thoughts and opinions of others with compassion

• Care for the property and community of the JCC
