A tradition of welcoming and excellence for more than 130 years
The St. Louis Jewish Community Center (the J) is a multigenerational gathering place, offering a variety of programs and services for the St. Louis Jewish community and the community at large. We welcome people of all backgrounds regardless of faith, race or ethnicity. The J provides educational, cultural, social, Jewish identity-building and recreational programming on its campuses in Creve Coeur, Chesterfield and at Camp Sabra, located at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Throughout our history, the J has been the central meeting place of the Jewish Community. It’s the one place where families, regardless of affiliation, can feel comfortable and welcome. We have evolved through the years to meet the changing needs of our members, our Jewish community and the entire St. Louis region.
Everyone is welcome at the J.
