Hello! Because we value your health and the health of our community, the J and its programs have been suspended. If you have an immediate question, you can still call us 314.432.5700.

While we’re practicing social distance (and we can’t wait for that to end), our staff are busy connecting with our members in new and exciting ways. We’ve taken our community online to reach you where you are. Join us!

The J’la – Annual Fundraising Gala

The J’la: The J’s Annual Fundraising Gala

Saturday, November 16

Our annual Gala took us downtown to the home of the 11-time World Champion Cardinals. We took a look back at the successes of the past year and celebrated the J and its important role in the community. Funds raised go toward J scholarships allowing those who may not otherwise be able to send their children to Early  Childhood or Day Camp, provide for loved ones to have daily support in our Adult Day at the J programs, learn social and life skills from our IN Program and so much more!

Honoring Jennifer & Jonathan Deutsch

We’re proud to honor Jennifer & Jonathan Deutsch

For many years, Jennifer & Jonathan have been instrumental to the success of the J, lending their leadership, financial support, guidance, and time. They have each played important roles at the J – as committee leaders, program organizers, volunteers and participants. Jennifer currently serves on the board of J Associates. Jonathan previously served as Board Chair of the J with distinction. They have passed their love of J programs to their children, as well. Riley, Ethan and Tyler, from a young age, have experienced the benefits of J Day Camps, youth sports, the JCC Maccabi Games®, and many other activities. They have all devoted so much passion and time to our agency and the entire community!

We thank Jennifer and Jonathan for the impact they have made, and will continue to make, as they help guide our J toward an ever-successful future.
